    i know it started last month but better late than never!



    Thoughts on this season so far? I definitely have a couple... I’m sad that Heather and Valencia are gone, hopefully they’ll be back for the finale.

    Darryl and White Josh have got to come to their senses and realize they belong together! Also, I can’t believe Darryl actually named his baby Hebecca!

    Greg is coming back sometime this season but he won’t be played by Santino Fontana, which is a complete shame. I will be referring to him as New Greg.

    So with New Greg coming back into the picture, I can see a possible love triangle between him, Rebecca, and Nathaniel. Rebecca has said that she loves Nathaniel but she also (finally) realizes that it’s important for her recovery to focus on herself.

    Nathaniel and NuGreg should pair off rather than square off to see who gets Rebecca, not that she is in a mood for a relationship with anyone right now.

    The show isn't the same as the glory days of seasons one and two, but I still enjoy it. I don't really love the new opening this season. The song is catchy (and really so much like girl's toy commercials it's crazy), but it's not very funny and just kind of takes up time.

    Yeah the first two season openings were so catchy! I still love the show but I’m glad it’s ending because a lot of shows go on forever rather than knowing when to quit. I’ll miss Rebecca and co. but it’s had a good run.

    We knew from the beginning there was a 4 season plan, and given the ratings, we're super lucky they got to finish.

    It was fun seeing the interactions between Heather and Nathaniel, and Paula and Josh.

    Rebecca and Darryl almost kissing was weird.

    I've avoided this show on Netflix based purely on it's name. I read quite a positive review about it and thought maybe I should give it a chance?

    So,I kinda binged the whole thing this past week and I kind of feel like I could sit and watch it all again. :beer:

    I heard Greg is back as a different actor this season, which sounds like it could be a little jarring. I was big fan of Rebecca/Greg in the early days when she was obsessing with Josh.

    I'm sure we can count on at least one meta-joke acknowledging that Greg is strangely different somehow . . . ..

    We have two Beckies on The Conners, so it's possible that Classic Greg might show up for a few episodes as a clever stunt.

    I'm sure they will. :techman:

    I didn't realise that the new actor playing Greg was in Pitch Perfect. It raises my hopes of what he can do in Crazy Ex Girlfriend.

    Good for Rebecca for finally standing up to her overbearing mother.

    I’m happily surprised that Josh didn’t burn down the house with the spaghetti and oil in the oven!

    I felt robbed of a Darryl and Josh song about cleaning.

    Agreed. I was all set for a lovely song and dance and blam! Although the lack of song was a good joke at Josh's expense.

    Was Naomi channelling the Ice Queen then? I love it when she shows up, Tovah Feldshuh is always excellent whatever she does in the show.

    So 7 episodes in and as far as I remember, we haven't had a particularly standout episode yet.

    Well there’s 18 episodes this season so lots more to come!

    There's going to be a 3 month gap in the middle.

    I think the little teases we got at the end with Rebecca fantasizing about Nathaniel and Josh were a red herring. I can easily see Rebecca ending the series (happily) alone.

    Glad they've completely redeemed Josh. It had gotten to the point last season where I couldn't stand the sight of him. Appears they're on the way to doing the same with Nathaniel. I could see all 3 of these characters ending up being cool with being alone.

    Good seeing Rebecca's prison friends again. Good for Nathaniel helping out. Nice subtle comment on our real life criminal justice system. Good seeing Audra again too, though I missed a reprise of Jap Battle.

    I didn't know we were getting 18 episodes in this final season. Good news.

    I know I need to be patient, the show has surprised me so many times already. I've just been spoilt watching it all in one go and start wondering what's going on when the season starts a little slow. ;)

    Also I forgot we were getting 18 episodes. The three month gap will break me. :p

    I just want her to be happy too by the series' end, whether she's with anyone or not. White Josh and Daryl is the relationship I'm worried for.

    "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"?? Never saw the movie, but it was my brother's life for a while. You'd think he'd learn, but now he's dealing with the Crazy Ex-Wife (different girl).

    Not a movie. An (excellent) TV series, now in its fourth and final season.

    Oh, TV series. Must be a SitCom. I don't typically watch those. Nor do I watch RomComs, either.
