I love Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I started to get into it just before COVID hit and Adam Schlesinger died. And that’s the only comment I’m offering on this story.
“Reson d’etre” isn’t Latin, you silly!
Not only was Cush Jumbo great in this series, she was able to elevate the other actors around her. I never cared much for Rose Leslie’s scenes in the show, except when she shared them with Jumbo, and then suddenly she became a lot more engaging just by working with Jumbo’s energy.
