Tv Season Info

In the first season of this sitcom, Jimmy (Chris Geere), a selfish and insensitive writer, and Gretchen (Aya Cash), a cynical and self-destructive PR executive, hook up at a mutual friend's wedding. Despite their shared cynicism about love, both grow closer and become more involved romantically, though their cynicism often gets in the way. Elsewhere: Gretchen's best friend Lindsay (Kether Donohue) finds herself in a loveless marriage to Paul (Allan McLeod), leading her to develop unhealthy habits that jeopardize her marriage.

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.

Top Critic

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.

Jul 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.

Jul 17, 2014 | Full Review…

Cash and Greere have an curious chemistry that gives the series some added life.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

At one point in the premiere, Jimmy compliments Gretchen on one of the many damning but clever speeches she throws his way, calling her words, "Funny, true and mean - my favorite kind." Personally, I'd say the same of You're the Worst as a whole.

Jul 15, 2014 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

It's Gretchen and Jimmy's repartee, their unrelenting need to voice their awful thoughts, that makes Worst worth watching.

Jul 14, 2014 | Full Review…

You're the Worst... evince[s] an acidic sweetness through its bleakness.
