This is probably the best show on TV that you’re not watching. It’s hands down my new favorite show. I originally only saw it because I was watching Married, the show with Judy Greer and Nat Faxon that comes on before YTW. It’s like the before and after of marriage in one hour.
One night I was procrastinating schoolwork more than the usual and I got hooked. I admit it might have been main character Jimmy’s British accent, (I’m still a bit London nostalgic) or the fact that the mean girl from the beginning of Pitch Perfect plays the hilarious best friend.
7 Reasons To Watch You’re The Worst:
1. This isn’t a forced romantic comedy
Nothing about this show is forced like so many shows, especially romantic comedies, on TV these days (I’m looking at you ABC Family). I love that Jimmy and Gretchen are hilarious, but not in an overdone way.
2. They are your new TV besties
Even though both main characters, and the supporting characters a bit are all endearing wrecks of people, you still want to be them/best friends with them. The supporting characters, Edgar and Lindsay, are sincerely funny in their own right, not relying on Gretchen and Jimmy for all their jokes and quirks.
3. Produced by Orange Is The New Black and Weeds producer, Stephen Falk.
Need I say more?
4. Are you a millennial?
It’s every love cynic and commitment-phobe’s dream which is basically every millennial ever.
5. My new Sunday theme song:
6. Disney darling, Brandon Smith, plays a hilarious, always high, skating rapper.
7. The main character makes a vodka smoothie.
Why hadn’t I thought of that before…?
So start binge watching before the season finale on Thursday. Mostly because I want a second season.
