You're the Worst on FX



About the show:

An original comedy from writer and executive producer Stephen Falk, You’re The Worst puts a dark twist on the romantic comedy genre. Narcissistic, brash, and self-destructive “Jimmy Shive-Overly,” played by Chris Geere (The Spa), thinks all relationships are doomed. Cynical, people-pleasing, and stubborn “Gretchen Cutler,” played by Aya Cash (The Wolf of Wall Street), knows that relationships aren't for her. So when they meet at a wedding, it's only natural that the two of them go home together and, despite their better judgment, begin to find themselves falling for each other.


Rounding out the cast is Desmin Borges (The Good Wife), who plays “Edgar Quintero,” Jimmy’s once homeless, war veteran roommate, and Kether Donohue (The Carrie Diaries) as “Lindsay Jillian,” Gretchen’s best friend and former partner in crime who’s now struggling with a life of domesticity.
You're The Worst is a modern look at love and happiness told through the eyes of two people who haven't been very successful with either. It's the story of Gretchen and Jimmy, fear, heartbreak, romance, sex, food, Los Angeles, friendship, and the fact that sometimes the worst people make the best partners.
You’re The Worst is produced by FX Productions.


'You're the Worst' airs on Thursdays at 9:30 PM CST only on FX.

_________________

I enjoyed it. Not the best show but it had it's perks. I liked the part when Aya Cash was disclosing her bad behavior to her ex-partner and he freaked out. I think she told him that she started a fire at her school to avoid a math exam.

Chris Geere played such a dick. He was a little rude to Aya Cash.

I can see where this is going though, I'm sure they fall in-love and get married or what ever.
I'll be tuning in next week

I was a bit surprised that I liked this more than I liked Married. I was expecting the opposite.

Still though, like you said, it feels like we know where it's going. I'll give it a couple more chances...

I bet it doesn't end up happily ever after. But it has to turn out more than mere bickering too. At any rate I suspect it's too subversive to survive for very long.

Perhaps the title should serve as a warning.

I like it, but if these numbers are correct, it doesn't look like it'll last long.

I thought this was the worst episode so far, until tonight I really liked this show, tonight was a little blah. I still like it a bit better than Married. I take it the numbers aren't too good, I think the leads are pretty good, especially Aya Cash, she's pretty good and the chemistry is good, I like the roommate too. Surely they'll finish out the season.

It's Flo! from the commercials! (the bookstore owner), on episode 2...

Man Thursdays became my favorite all of the sudden, 2 hot redheads back to back, although I would like to see Judy Greer having more action just like Aya Cash..

RIP Mom, we always love you 8/18/13

I'm not enjoying this too much. I prefer the earlier program called Married. I'll try and watch it again later to decide.

Show is well written but not sure people will warm to the notion of the two leads begrudgingly learning to like each other.

I think so too, I gave up on Married, but I'm enjoying this show a lot, the back and forth between the two leads keeps me totally entertained and laughing a lot.

I watched this show online backwards and think it is okay. Glad it is on cable rather than network so it can push limits. Kinda in the mode of Don't Trust The B**** in Apartment 23 but can actually be more biting and doesn't have the pov of the "nice" person. I'll watch it for now. The issue with the show is where does it go. Some of my favorite stuff is with Gretchen's work. I hope we see a lot more of that.

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

I watch and love this show. Also watch Married which I consider inferior to You're the Worst.

Yep. The leads have great chemistry and they're always entertaining when they're on screen. I like it a lot too but it doesn't seem as though a whole lot of people are watching...

I agree about Gretchen, she is the star of the show in my mind, gotta give the writers a lot of credit or the combination, whatever it is, she's quick and witty and the timing seems nearly perfect.

Yeah, I'm bailing on Married and sticking with this one too. The cast has a lot more energy and sparky friction. The cast on Married all seem like they are just really tired. That might be an accurate reflection of life but it doesn't make for great comedy.

Another good one tonight, it's like one ok one and one really good one every other week. I wonder if they can keep up the writing. I think I was laughing through at least half the show tonight. The sidekicks are getting better each week too.

Not so good tonight, the show doesn't work well for me unless the two leads are interacting. Apart it just doesn't work. Next week is the season finale and hopefully not the series finale. I thought last week's was one of the best one's of the series. Meeting the parents.

Yeah I thought it was all fairly pointless. It didn't tell us anything we didn't know about these characters and the back and forth was noticeably absent as was the comedy. It almost headed into a gloomy dramedy.

I think I got lost in the timeline a bit, wasn't Lindsay very happy with her hubby last episode and now she wants to abandon him and head for New York with Gretchen? mmmm

I think LOST ruined the flashbacks for TV for ever LOL

Hit and miss finale with some good moments. I liked the "punch you in the clit" line and the exploding Magic Wand.

Overall I would give the season a C+. A good collection of characters. The show works much better when it's Gretchen and Jimmy onscreen but the show spent a lot of the season having people doing their own thing too much. Edgar just seems to be floating around with no direction. Maybe now he has the hots for Lindsay the show can have the group being together more often.

If it comes back.

Well, it's coming back, but moving to FXX according to the HOTP thread. I can live with that. Married is also coming back and it's staying on FX. Now, if I can just get some good news about Manhattan coming back.
