Larry King: The title of the show.
Rachel Bloom: Yeah.
Larry King: Is that people call all women crazy?
Rachel Bloom: Yeah. Yeah. You know it was funny because the show was always from such a feminist perspective, we never thought that people would take the title at face value. It’s like, I don’t know, it’s like calling a show Fat Bitch. It’s just so inflammatory you’re gonna deconstruct it. But because we were on a network people just thought, oh we’re gonna tell a story about a crazy girl like, “I need dick. Blah blah blah.” But it was always meant to be, I mean from the start ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ what does that mean, is she crazy? People call her crazy, she calls herself crazy, and in the pilot there’s a moment where she’s like “I moved out here for love. I’m crazy. Oh my God, I’m crazy.” So we were always meaning to deconstruct it, but it took people a little bit of time to realize that’s what we were doing.
