Critic Reviews for You're the Worst: Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (17)

Despite an unusually cynical and misanthropic worldview, the show is romantic at heart. The two leads are charismatic and funny, and the writing, although frequently coarse, is also frequently clever.

You're The Worst is perfectly willing to let its sparks fly while also managing to warm viewers to the overall premise of two flammable, relationship-phobic humans finding each other in fits and spurts.

It's a masterful non-rom-com.

I find these misanthropes truly interesting and pretty damn funny.

July 17, 2014 | Full Review…

You're the Worst feels very much like the sitcom version of an R-rated romantic comedy, in which tawdriness and dirty jokes are used to make a square and sentimental boy-meets-girl story seem sophisticated.

Top Critic

Though relatively unknown, [Chris] Geere and (especially) [Aya] Cash are sharp and winning; they don't trade banter as much as they hot box it.
