Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is free on iTunes right now. What are you doing? Go get it!
The CW’s buzzy but ratings-challenged musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is gearing up for Emmy battle. Season one of the series is now available for free on iTunes. So are recent seasons of The Good Wife, Jane the Virgin, and Madame Secretary.
That’s right. It’s all free.
Of course, it’s been widely (and illegally) available online for months now, but this is your chance to legally download and own the critically acclaimed series. Labelled as Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Season 1 – For Your Consideration, the entry offers high and standard definition downloads for those who haven’t yet caught the show, regardless of your Emmy voting eligibility.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend stars Rachel Bloom as Rebecca Bunch. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve gotten that confused and transposed. Anyway, Rebecca briefly reconnects with summer camp fling Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III) and decides to follow him across the country to West Covina, California. The series also stars Donna Lynne Champlain and Santino Fontana (Frozen).
Bloom received Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice awards for her title performance. She is favored to receive Emmy attention in the Comedy Actress category. It’s possible this promotion will increase the series’s Emmy viability including the deserving supporting cast of Champlain and Fontana.
Or you can just own the series and replay “West Covina…. Caaaaaalifornia!” over and over and over and over and over.
OK. It’s more nuanced than that.
