Crazy Ex-Girlfriend - I Need Some Balance - Review: I'm Dating My Uncle



Out of every single episode thus far on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend - and there have been quite a few - this has to go down as the craziest yet. I'll admit, I haven't seen Cats (the musical). But if it's anything like this episode, I think I'll pass. That being said, I don't think I laughed harder in an episode. Let's dive in...

Up first we meet: Hungry Cat. Hungry appears to Rebecca (in a dream) because girl is thirsty. Which is completely fair since she experiencing a lot of pent up sexual tension after years of feelings for Josh, Greg, Nathaniel, and now New-Greg. Tension that she first tries to release with I kid you not - She Smash, "porn for feminists."

Next we are introduced to: Itchy Cat. After wearing the wrong workout pants, Rebecca develops a nasty yeast infection, unfortunately this is just as Rebecca starts hitting it off with her date.

Which leads us to: Funky Cat. I don't think I can explain this cat better than he explains himself..."I’m the funky cat and I appear when something funky is going on around here." GOLD.

Only to be followed by: Elated Cat. Elated Cat is probably my favorite of the bunch. Not only is she Team Greg (#teamgreg), but she's covered in rainbows and dances her feelings. She only comes around when it's a good time, but this is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend so it's obviously short-lived.

By the episode's end group is finally rounded out by: Nostalgia Cat (and Doggy Dog). Not much to say except Nostalgia cat is one sad pussy.

In other plotlines, a mustache-less Darryl returns to the firm only to realize he's been replaced by Bert. Thankfully, Father Brah is able to come in and lead a mediation circle (even though it doesn't go exactly as planned). And in even more shocking news, Nathaniel and New-Greg become friends! This bromance was doomed from the start, but before that we get a lot of fun moments, especially when they share they'd love to get back with their ex.


Scene Stealer:

Rachel Bloom. My ever-growing love letter to her will now open with, "Thank you Rachel Bloom for accurately portraying a yeast infection on television. You’re honesty and bravery knows no bounds."

Quote(s) Out of Context:

Valencia: But please - don’t sleep with my dad Rebecca.
Rebecca: Hahahaha
Valencia: No seriously, I need you to say it.
Rebecca: Okay, I won’t sleep with Jorge...even though he does have kind eyes and a beautiful corazon.
Rebecca: I’m kidding!

Maya: Everything you said was super smart. And I just wanted to ask, What are you doing later, and do you like oatmeal draft lattes? ‘Cause I do.

Father Brah: I’m a priest
Maya: I’m a Capricorn. I think this could work.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
