i can never stress enough how you all should be watching crazy ex-girlfriend.
i gather it’s for free on the cw app
i gather netflix uploads the episodes weekly in most regions

you get anti-heroes. because you don’t have to be a man making drugs on a cable drama to be an anti-hero. you have to be deeply fucked up and that’s what these characters are.

it’s just overall brilliant. it won the cw a golden globe and two emmys. rachel bloom is out of this world
