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.

Critic Reviews for Living With Yourself Season 1

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (18)

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

Arguably, Living With Yourself doesn't follow through on its absurdist logic with quite the same level of commitment, but it's still a lot of fun. Miles and Miles of it, in fact.

Nov 8, 2019 | Full Review…

In some ways it's a very modern comedy - it doesn't beat you over the head with its set pieces and its characters are far from caricatures.

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.

Paul Rudd brings a sprightly antagonism to the twin roles, but you can't help feeling that while the premise has promise, he's not well served by the script. Rudd is the main reason to keep watching. Fortunately, it's a good one.

Living feels like a first draft of that very good idea, squandering over its running time the potential of that premise.

Nov 15, 2019 | Full Review…

The premise is good but it could be a lot more inventive and funny.

Nov 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The first season ends with a group hug and leaves us with a warm, fuzzy feeling of hope.

Oct 18, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Living With Myself tells a snappy, compact story across its short run. Paul Rudd is as effortlessly watchable as ever, and he brilliantly differentiates between the schlubby Miles and the smarter, more dynamic Miles.

Oct 29, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Living With Yourself is a meditation on what self-improvement really means, and I sort of appreciated the way it duped you into thinking it would be something else every step of the way.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's inventive and humourous, but skews towards the drama as it explores its existential concepts. And while the first half of the eight-episode series is stronger than the second it remains entertaining viewing throughout.

Audience Reviews for Living With Yourself: Season 1

    I actually loved it. Paul rudd did a great job playing both parts. I loved the metaphor behind the whole show. The writers were clever portraying the internal struggle with depression in a literal visual concept. It was quite hilarious in a few parts and still picks your mind on everyday issues in the real world as well as vague concepts of morality in cloning. It was a fresh perception to most scifi shows on cloning as well. I really hope to see a second season because it could go a few ways. This was definitely a favorite to watch on my reccomendation list.

    The premise has been done before. The cinematographer and audio engineer are trying WAAAAAY to hard. There is a subtle difference between jarring and I need to turn this off because I got a headache and this show isn't subtle about the headache. Why Paul Rudd? Why would you lower yourself to this?

    Even though the concept of what actually happened was ridiculous (as was the interaction between the two Rudd characters and the "spa" itself), the rest of the season was excellent and kept me guessing. Already looking forward to next season.

    Idk...it was a little entertaining. But I didn't like the ending.

    i think it was a disappointment for me. the only good thing in this show is Paul Rudd. he is really different and was able to create two characters based on these very mediocre lines. the first two episodes were very good and one was excited to see more. but then after episode three ends you realize that they are roaming around in circles. the idea of the self, the original character realizing its own shortcomings through the creations on a newer better self is very weakly expressed. there is a deep philosophical meaning to the movie but they failed in taking the narrative further and here original idea of the show was lost. the exploration of he wife's character was very boring and felt meaningless.

    I really like the acting. Paul Rudd has been good since Clueless. The whole cast is good. His boss in the show seems like a real boss — great acting!

    The biggest reason to watch it was Paul Rudd and it becomes more evident in the first half hour into the show. The story and concept is not new and has been explored in the past but what makes this fresh to watch is the episode run time very tight so big plus for that and the performance of the leads especially Paul Rudd. It will only take 4hrs of your life but this show is worth binge watching for.

    It had great potential. The concept is good, the actors and acting are good. It fell flat for me completely. The first couple of episodes were pretty decent, but from then on it went downhill. I feel like it was trying to hard to create a dramatic, wild story and often ended up with timelines which make no sense and it lost any comedy along the way. And that wasn't even my main problem with it; I found the 2 clones to be really unlikeable. One was smug and completely full of himself, and the other was lazy and almost toddler-like, and both of them were self pitying and irritating. So between the plot holes and dislikable characters it didn't have many redeeming qualities.

    Really enjoyable. Easy to watch - but not a binge watch as it would probably get a bit boring. Paul Rudd was fantastic. I loved Aisling Bea's character. The show doesn't take itself to seriously, but there are some moments of cringe comedy.
