You're the Worst's Jimmy and Gretchen

"You're the Worst" review by Suzanne 9/10/15
Airs Wednesdays 10:30pm on FX

I enjoyed this show last year when it started, although I didn't keep up with it (I just watch too many shows!).  It's still really funny.

The first season was all about Jimmy and Gretchen meeting and falling for one another. They're a very modern and unconventional couple who swear and drink a lot. They don't want to be "normal" or "conventional."  They're both a bit narcisstic and have had many failed relationships.  In the second season, Gretchen has moved in after accidentally burning down her own building.  They find it difficult being in this more conventional setup.

The first episode this season is pretty funny. The second one, where they go to the mall with their friends, is even funnier. Jimmy has writer's block. Gretchen has a difficult time buying "stuff."

This is not the funniest show on TV, but it's definitely a good cable comedy and probably the funniest show on FX. Check it out!


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, Sunday Funday, friendship, and the fact that sometimes the worst people make the best partners.

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 (Chris Geere) has inadvertently found himself paired up with cynical, people-pleasing, and stubborn Gretchen Cutler (Aya Cash). After a whirlwind courtship that culminates in Gretchen burning her apartment down with a faulty “back massager,” she and Jimmy are forced to take their relationship to the next level by moving in together (which neither of them are particularly thrilled about). Now they must learn how to live with each other when they can barely live with themselves.

Rounding out the cast is Desmin Borges, who plays Edgar Quintero, Jimmy’s once homeless war veteran roommate who’s on a mission to redefine his relationship with Jimmy; and Kether Donohue as Lindsay Jillian, Gretchen’s best friend and former partner in crime who’s now struggling to find her identity after being dumped by her “lame, soft” husband. 

You're the Worst is produced by FX Productions.
