Living With Yourself: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
Living With Yourself

Critics Consensus

Strange, surreal, and surprising, Living With Yourself takes a minute to come together, but once it does it proves to be a clever rumination on identity driven by Paul Rudd's impressive dueling performances.

As it stands, there's a lot to like no matter what you know going in.

"Living With Yourself" is an entertaining, often absurd dramedy about a man forced to literally face how much he's fallen short in life.

You can't just keep the good and discard the bad; you have to live with both.

Rudd exceeds the sum of his two parts here. He's terrific.

Top Critic

It's proof that a show can be clever and fun, but still feel like it's lacking that something extra that takes a program from good to great.

Oct 17, 2019 | Full Review…

It just seems like a waste of a premise that could have gone so much deeper and evolved into something so much stranger.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The series is at its best when the versatile and effortlessly comic Rudd acts opposite himself, switching from smarmy to downtrodden to just plain charming with a simple smirk or eyebrow twitch.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Living With Yourself might not be entirely unique in its suburban ennui commentary, or even that eventful, but for a show bent on having two Paul Rudds, it delivers in a satisfying way.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

In offering little more than fortune-cookie sentiments about our own lives being what we make of them, Living With Yourself doesn't give us much to hold onto as we wait for more miles.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Living With Yourself is highly entertaining when it has the momentum of really getting into the pluses and minuses of human cloning... But the push-and-pull of Miles and Miles 2 is played more for mild laughs than comedic deep thinking.

Dec 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's got a twisted sense of humor and two compelling leads in Rudd and Bea, who mine the often thin material for more than its worth.

Dec 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

At a time when catching up on shows can feel like homework, Living With Yourself is a slightly weird and wholly welcome recess.

Audience Reviews for Living With Yourself: Season 1

  • May 10, 2020
    Great cast putting on some amazing performances. Generally good but felt a little jumbled overall, with odd genre/tonal jumping throughout the episodes. Some stuff felt like a teaser for later seasons which is odd in an original, first season of a show. Also the ending didn't sit all too well with me, leaving a slight sour note on an otherwise pretty enjoyable, easy to watch show.

    Clever non-linear storytelling and really creative direction. I totally binged this.

    Leira - 3ºAR Struggling personally and professionally, and looking for happiness, Miles Elliott receives a revolutionary spa treatment and wakes up discovering that he was replaced with a new and better version of himself.

    Almost perfect. An intriguing story coupled with epic music, this dark comedy/sci-fi drama is strongly recommended. It's like that perfect book you read & just can't stop raving about it. Paul Rudd is brilliant & Aisling Bea is drop dead gorgeous!

    Fantastic programme, hated the ending.
  • Jan 11, 2020
    Really thought provoking storyline. Superb acting performance from Rudd—some funny without being slapstick, but palpable in dramatic moments—and from Bea.
  • Jan 09, 2020
    I love Paul Rudd, but thats the worst show I saw with him. Incredibly boring.
  • Jan 05, 2020
    Absolutely fantastic. Does a complete Justice to its genre I.e. comedy. Such fresh concept around comedy. I was very unwilling to watch it as the topic didn't really matched my wavelength, but it surprised me. In first 10 minutes only I absolutely and thoroughly enjoyed it. So much fun. Paul Rudd is the boss.

    Good series but din't draw in completely 😏
  • Jan 04, 2020
    This show is a very interesting concept. Paul Rudd is amazing in it. It's very quirky and unusual, so I think it stands out as a unique addition to the Netflix cache. I don't see how it can be a long-term show, but I think the plot could be turned into at least two or three seasons.
