We're taking a trip to West Covina this episode, as we talk about season 1 of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. So instead of having an in-person Group Hang, start up a Netflix Party and join us in discussing one of our favorite musical TV shows!

For the most part spoiler-free, though we have a spoiler section starting from 29:17.


All four seasons of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend are currently available on Netflix.

You can watch all the music videos from the show (in their explicit versions) on Rachel Bloom's YouTube channel. And you can also see some of the possible inspirations and references in each musical number.

Rachel Bloom's memoir, I Want to Be Where the Normal People Are, is out now and you can listen to an excerpt from the audiobook, where she sings from a script written about how she fell in love with musicals.

Watch as Lin-Manuel Miranda joins Gabrielle Ruiz for a slightly modified version of "Women Gotta Stick Together".

As mentioned by Cindy, see just how many people on the street would say yes to having sex with Paul Rudd.

The song "Heavy Boobs" mentions just how many objects can fit under her boobs, and Rachel Bloom proves it to be true.

For those that love Santino Fontana as much as we do, he can be seen in his upcoming "live" concert with Seth Rudetsky on February 21.
