Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 2 episode 13 review: Can Josh Take A Leap Of Faith?

Sarah Dobbs Feb 6, 2017

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season two bows out on what might be its most intense episode yet...

This review contains spoilers.

2.13 Can Josh Take A Leap Of Faith?

Hands up if, at some point in this episode, you thought the massive cliff-hanger promised for the end of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season two was going to involve Rebecca Literally Hanging From A Cliff? Because I definitely did. When You Stupid Bitch started playing and she walked out to the cliff edge to gaze expectantly across the ocean, I thought we were headed somewhere terrifying. And – well, we were, weren’t we? Just not physically.

Like the first season, season two ended on a wedding. And like the first season, season two ended with several characters making good decisions and then immediately following them up with huge, life-changing, insanely bad decisions.

The Division: 10 Crucial Tips & Tricks The Game Doesn’t Tell You

Ubisoft

When it was first revealed almost three years ago at E3 2013, Tom Clancy’s The Division certainly looked exciting. However, following multiple delays and allegations of graphical downgrades and potential problems, it became even more interesting, but suddenly for all the wrong reasons. Eventually – weeks after the worldwide launch – The Division has managed to achieve widespread critical acclaim from the majority of reviewers.

If you were as relieved as I was when the finished article actually turned out to be great, then chances are you’ve also been playing The Division as regularly as I have. After all, why wouldn’t you? It’s a massive project that’s so densely populated with things to do and discover that the chances you’ve already grown bored with it are very slim.

With that in mind, it’s time to consider various features and secrets that you may not have discovered just yet,

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Dakota Johnson and Alabama Shakes

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Dakota Johnson and Alabama Shakes
I get it: There are more than a few concerned fans worried that tonight’s “Saturday Night Live” might be a less-than-stellar edition. Most know host Dakota Johnson from her most recent film role, which isn't exactly a "Bridesmaids"-esque romp. But think of it less as one hosted by the star of “Fifty Shades Of Grey” and rather one hosted by the former lead of the late, great Fox comedy “Ben And Kate.” Dakota Johnson might be more (or near-exclusively) known for the former, but she was straight-up funny on the latter. And while we’ll probably see more references to Christian Grey than Ben Fox, I just don’t have the same hopeless feeling I did before Blake Shelton took the stage in January. (Also? I'm never going to see "Fifty Shades Of Grey," but this recap is going to be a sarcasm-free when it comes to that book/movie franchise.

Recap: 'Doctor Who' - 'Listen' to the sound of the entire fandom gasp simultaneously

Recap: 'Doctor Who' - 'Listen' to the sound of the entire fandom gasp simultaneously
Last week saw Twelve and Clara in a stand-alone episode. “The Robot of Sherwood” had some great dialogue and character insights wrapped in a candy coating of absurdity. I don’t know about you guys, but I was along for the ride right up until the last ten minutes. A leap of faith via suspension of disbelief is acceptable…even expected…but the “golden arrow” might be the new “jumping the shark.” Can this week’s episode “Listen”, written by showrunner Steven Moffat, right the ship? ********** We open with the Doctor meditating on top of the Tardis above the Earth. He is listening for something. And he asks us to listen along, breaking the fourth wall to look right at the audience. This is a variation of a theme Moffat has played on before. Don’t blink, don’t breathe, don’t move. Be still. Listen. Inside the Tardis, the

Press tour: 'Better Call Saul' live-blog with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould

Press tour: 'Better Call Saul' live-blog with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould
Until about 10 minutes ago, there has been so much conflicting information, if not outright misinformation, about what exactly "Better Call Saul" will be: A straight "Breaking Bad" prequel? A time-bending journey that includes adventures during the reign of Heisenberg? A comedy? A drama with occasional laughs? Huell's story? AMC's press release about the full cast and basic premise and setting fill in some of the details — including that it begins six years before Saul (then known as Jimmy McGill) meets Walter White — and now co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould will hopefully bring more of the show (not due to premiere until early 2015) into sharper clarity, without actually giving too much of the fun away. I'll be live-blogging all of Gilligan's charming Virginian self-deprecation, all of Gould's jokes, and whatever nuggets we actually get about the new show. (Note: all times will be Pacific.) 5:10 p.m.: Gould and

'The Story of the Jews With Simon Schama' offers an intricate look at endurance

Telling the story of the Jews is such an impossible task, it sounds like a routine Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks cooked up, just after the 2,000 Year Old Man.

The five-part series "The Story of the Jews With Simon Schama," though, is completely legitimate and scans further back than a mere couple of millennia. 

Schama's brilliant take on history premieres on PBS in five one-hour installments on consecutive Tuesdays, March 25 and April 1 (check local listings).

It's an intricate look at a people who endure. Schama, who has racked up awards for his books and documentaries on history, art and literature, talks about how he initially shied away from tackling the subject.

"I had a slight sense, a residual sense that I was at my best when dealing with cultures not my own," Schama tells Zap2it.

He let the concept percolate for a while, and the result is the series and a companion book.

TV review: Britain By Bike and Baby Beauty Queens

Clare Balding puffs over Britain's hills and dales on her vintage bicycle – what a gal!

Watch Britain By Bike on iPlayer

Watch Baby Beauty Queens on iPlayer

Oh, Clare Balding, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Or at least allow me to gaze, rapt and grubby-kneed, from a roadside verge as you puff past on your vintage bicycle, thighs pumping like pistons, fringe bouncing like a blonde trampette in the Shropshire breeze. Such scenes are legion in Britain By Bike (BBC4), a robust, all-weather travelogue that finds the abundantly capable sports anchor gasping over hill and wheezing across dale on her "lovely hand-built Dawes Super Galaxy".

After last week's exertions in Devon, this second instalment featured a 28-mile ride through the Welsh borders – a journey first recorded by one Harold Briercliffe, an enthusiast whose 60-year-old Cycling Touring Guides provide the backbone of Balding's series.

The views were spectacular.

Catching Up with the 'High School Musical' Stars
It's odd that I noticed, but it's been a while since we last heard "Breaking Free" and those other High School Musical hits. That's because the franchise's stars are busy moving on. Fans of the movie series are still following them through their respective careers though, and now that they've landed new projects it's a good time to track them down again.

Sundance Review: "The Runaways"

The perfect Sundance film is "The Runaways", a film that is both provocative and haunting, a film that captures the mid-seventies with clarity and that beautifully explores the fascinating world of teen girl band The Runaways, fleetingly big at a time of social unrest.

The movie focuses on the often turbulent and protective relationship between guitarist/vocalist Joan Jett and lead vocalist Cherie Currie as they navigate a rocky road of touring and record-label dramas. The film beautifully chronicles the band's formation as well as their meteoric rise under the pervasive eye of an abusive manager.

"The Runaways" marks the feature directorial debut of video artist Floria Sigismondi who directs this riveting and hypnotic work from her own script, one that is both a sharply observed study of character, epoch and the purity of rock ‘n’ roil. Visually the film is strikingly gorgeous, one that cinematically explores the contrasts between
