CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND

Look for season 3 of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend this fall on The CW.

THEY’RE VERY BEAUTIFUL, nobody will notice, and besides, my son will be so pleased, I tell myself, as I mull over surreptitiously snapping a close-up of Rachel Bloom’s breasts. (Not a naked photo. Just Bloom in a low-cut gown. What kind of a mother do you think I am?)

I’m at Watch!’s photo shoot, and my 15-year-old son, who introduced me to the actress through two of her viral videos, “You Can Touch My Boobies” and “Heavy Boobs,” had asked me to please confirm whether they are real and as spectacular in person. (They are.)

It is not lost on me, as I’m considering this awful thing, that it is exactly the kind of behavior you’d expect from someone like Rebecca Bunch, the character Bloom plays on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, her groundbreaking musical comedy series on The CW: inappropriate, borderline illegal, yet totally rationalizable in someone’s head. Well, Rebecca’s head. Or mine, apparently.

Therein lies the beauty of , which is about to start its third season: We have all been Rebecca Bunch. Maybe we haven’t forsaken our high-powered New York careers and things. But there is not a single human being who hasn’t thought about it. Who hasn’t wanted to stalk and—when that didn’t work out so well—rain down rage and pain on someone who’s hurt us? Including Bloom herself.
