The show is depressing in the early going and all the jokes don't hit, but it's a wisely-conceived idea with an ever-game Rudd. He expands his everyman abilities without letting the huge role overwhelm him.

Imagine having a love triangle with your spouse and yourself. Your romantic rival is you - and not only just you, but a better, more attentive, more thoughtful version of you.

When it started, I thought it was headed in a certain direction and it goes somewhere else entirely; it's a must watch.

With nowhere to go, viewers will stay through to the final episode of the season for Paul's frankly awesome performances.

It's a simmering funny tale and a really interesting take on what it means to be flawed.

For something that's got just enough of a fantastical element that could have seen it go a hundred different ways, Living With Yourself is an unexpected breathe of fresh air.
December 9, 2019
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.
December 9, 2019
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.
December 5, 2019
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.

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.

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.

It just seems like a waste of a premise that could have gone so much deeper and evolved into something so much stranger.
December 5, 2019
As it stands, there's a lot to like no matter what you know going in.

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

"Living With Yourself" is an entertaining, often absurd dramedy about a man forced to literally face how much he's fallen short in life.
November 21, 2019
It's unfortunate when the easiest pun lines up best with reality, but in the case of Paul Rudd's new half-hour comedy series on Netflix, "rudderless" does about cover it.
November 15, 2019
Living feels like a first draft of that very good idea, squandering over its running time the potential of that premise.
November 8, 2019
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.
November 8, 2019
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.
November 4, 2019
The premise is good but it could be a lot more inventive and funny.
