‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Gets the NSFW Gag Reel Showtime Could Have Had
Once upon a time, The CW’s Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Crazy Ex-Girlfriend had been set up as a half-hour Showtime pilot, chock-full of all the NSFW humor that Rachel Bloom was known for, and now that bleeds through CW standards. Don’t take our word for it, though, see for yourself in the full 18+ gag reel for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s first season.
Ahead of this week’s Season 2 premiere, Rachel Bloom herself released the full five-minute gag reel from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 1, full of all the naughty words and sex jokes that would never fly on The CW. The series is known for pushing boundaries here and there, but the gag reel at least offers a taste of what might have been on Showtime, had the network not passed on the original pilot.
In the meantime, we’ve already seen the new opening credits and first, Beyonce-inspired musical number for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 2, so check out the trailer below, and be sure to catch the official premiere on Friday, October 21 on The CW.
