The Most Recent Episode of ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Tackles the Problems of ‘Fit Hot Guys’
Though it doesn’t do great in the ratings, The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is one of our favorite shows. (Between that and Riverdale, who would have expected the CW would be our favorite network?) Despite the title, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is one of the smartest shows on TV. While it’s women-led and -driven, there’s plenty of eyecandy for us, too. Case in point, the sexiest video about ugly crying ever, “Fit Hot Guys Have Problems Too.”
In the latest episode, “Nathaniel Gets The Message!” the male cast of the show licks their wounds over their respective breakups. Nathaniel (played by Scott Michael Foster) has just been dumped by Rebecca, the main character played by show co-creator Rachel Bloom. White Josh (played by David Hull) has been dumped by Daryl (he of the memorable music video “Getting Bi“). And Josh (played by Vincent Rodriguez III) has been dumped by his mom — well, okay, she just made him move out of their house.
In an attempt to cheer themselves up, they go to a gay bar to pick up a new guy (in White Josh’s case), or an obnoxious bachelorette party-goer (in Nathaniel’s case). But it doesn’t work — they’re just as sad as before.
But that’s a bunch of backstory for what you’re really here for — watching three super sexy guys strip while singing about their problems. As it turns out, the song is pretty great too, with a number of clever lines, lie “Our pecs are perfect, but we have bad days / So don’t objectify us with your male and female gaze.” And who among us can’t relate to a line like “We’re expressing our pain through the art of dance / But we’ll express so much better without these pants”?
