‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Finally Went to Its Darkest Place Yet on Friday’s Pivotal Episode

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Finally Went to Its Darkest Place Yet on Friday’s Pivotal Episode
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” episode, “I Never Want to See Josh Again.”]

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” has never shied away from its title as a way to examine what issues that a person might have that other people might label as “crazy.” Even before the series aired, co-creator, executive producer, and star Rachel Bloom was clear that — despite the rom-com trope of a woman dropping everything to follow a man — mental health would be addressed in some way.

“When you are truly obsessed and in love with someone in a way that you are stalking them, you are not going from being super happy about yourself to that,” Bloom said at the Television Critics Association press tour panel for the show in 2015. “Chances are there is some level of depression or anxiety. So we knew we wanted to start with a character who was in a bad place and was then going to look at Josh Chan as an escape instead of looking within herself for the solution…

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Boss Explains Rebecca's Sad Choice: 'We Knew She Was Going to Bottom Out'

Warning: The post contains spoilers from Friday’s episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

Rebecca Bunch’s journey hit rock bottom this week on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, with tragic consequences. After retreating home to avoid the mess she made in West Covina, Rebecca actually had a nice time bonding with her domineering mother Naomi… until she discovered Naomi had been spiking her strawberry milkshakes with anti-anxiety pills.

Marvel’s New Warriors will no longer air on Freeform, being shopped to other outlets

Despite receiving a straight-to-series order from the Disney-owned network, THR is reporting that Marvel’s half-hour comedy series New Warriors will no longer air on Freeform, and is being shopped to other outlets.

According to the site, the New Warriors pilot “is said to have tested through the roof and caught the attention of high-level Disney executives”. However, Freeform – which is set to air another Marvel series, Cloak & Dagger – was unable to find a slot for the series next year, prompting Marvel to ask for it back to seek an alternative home.

The site goes on to report that Marvel may no longer be allowed to sell to non-Disney companies such as Netflix, where it has Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Defenders and The Punisher, prompting speculation that it may find itself on Disney’s upcoming streaming service.

The Best Short Films from the 61st BFI London Film Festival

Ben Robins with the best short films from the BFI London Film Festival…

This year’s Lff was another seriously star-studded affair, with talks of Oscars and hefty awards-season releases sewn into almost every single conversation around. But some of the best talent on show this year actually ended up coming from the festival’s smallest showcase – its shorts.

Everyone starts somewhere, and for most of these filmmakers, the attached shorts are huge stepping stones towards all sorts of eventual acclaim. So remember these names in the coming years, because aside from generating some of the most fascinating and entertaining content of this year’s festival circuit, they’re also, without a shadow of a doubt, destined for even more greatness.

Real Gods Require Blood (dir. Moin Hussain)

Easily one of the most talked-about shorts of the fest (and rightfully so) was Moin Hussain’s beautifully grim kitchen-sink horror, which

Watch: A Newly Single Bisexual Woman Goes Off-Script in Exclusive Clip of “Strangers”

Strangers

The presence of a film crew doesn’t deter a woman from spilling her guts to a love interest in our exclusive new clip of “Strangers.” Created and directed by Mia Lidofsky, the series follows two twenty-something roommates in La, newly single and bisexual Isobel (Zoe Chao, “The Comeback”) and her lesbian best friend Cam (Meredith Hagner, “Search Party”). The former has decided to rent out her spare room to scrape together rent, and this week’s ep of the show sees a film crew taking over the space.

An overly touchy actor asks Isobel to run lines with him, and it’s not long before she goes off-script. “Shouldn’t you be able to love the parts of me that are afraid? The ugly and difficult parts?” she asks the project’s camera assistant, who she’s forged a strong connection with. “Look, I’m just a person like you. Struggling to get through each day and I’m really scared because I thought I was supposed to be more at this point in my life,” Isobel says. She’s still trying to figure out who she is — but she thinks this relationship deserves a chance.

Check out the clip to see how Isobel’s bold declaration is received. You can watch the fifth episode of “Strangers,” directed by Celia Rowlson-Hall, now on Facebook’s new Watch platform.

Peter Farrelly on Learning to Love TV, Plus His Big Move Into Feature Drama — With Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen
There’s something about Peter Farrelly. The filmmaker, mostly known for feature comedies, is trying out a few new things this year.

Those shifts including separate moves into both television – where Farrelly and his brother Bob have rarely played – and dramatic film. At At&T’s Audience Network, Farrelly is behind the upcoming comedy “Loudermilk,” starring Ron Livingston as a cranky recovering alcoholic.

But Farrelly’s move into TV doesn’t mean he’s turning his back on the big screen. “I’m actually doing a film in the fall with Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali,” Farrelly told an audience at the Atx Television Festival, where “Loudermilk” was screening. “Green Book,” with Oscar winner Ali and Mortensen in the lead roles, is currently being prepped.
