News & Interviews for You're the Worst: Season 1
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.
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.
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.
You're the Worst is able to deliver emotional stories on multiple levels, topped off with the reluctant love story of Gretchen and Jimmy, sealing its place as the best new comedy of 2014.
Cash and Greere have an curious chemistry that gives the series some added life.
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.
It's Gretchen and Jimmy's repartee, their unrelenting need to voice their awful thoughts, that makes Worst worth watching.
Audience Reviews for You're the Worst: Season 1
Jan 29, 2021This show's the worst.
Dec 01, 2019HULU is really presenting some excellent shows, and YOU'RE THE WORST is one of the best. I haven't seen any of the previous work of the actors in the show, but they are all excellent in YOU'RE THE WORST. Excellent ensemble cast, writing is witty, sharp, and funny, and the pacing is really brisk, which is great! (I appreciate the intertextuality!)
Jun 19, 2019THIS IS THE WORST SHOW EVER! THE ONLY GOOD PART ABOUT IT ARE THE SEX SCENES!!!!!
Jan 03, 2019Unfunny romantic comedy
Oct 20, 2018Funny and clever Youre the Worst is a pleasant surprise.
Dec 17, 2017Love the dynamic between the two actors. Great modern relationship storys that unveils the not so bright side of relationships, including cheating, jealousy, commitment, independence and other sensitive themes while keeping things funny. The drama doesn't seem over the top and it touches on a lot of topics because of the diverse cast of characters which are all written very well and the interwoven plot of each character. The characters feel real, each with their own unique outlook, personality, circumstance and relationship with one another. Definitely one of my favorite shows that follow the lives of a couple and their relationship development while dealing with other relationship issues and dramas through the supporting cast. Also both the main characters are super similar to my own personal beliefs are ideals. Also I have a thing for redheads :) so if i could rate this a 5.5 stars out of 5 I would.
Aug 24, 2016I loved season 1, it was such a funny comedy. Then season 2 became one of my favourite TVShows ever. The cast is beyond amazing, specially Aya Cash. This is much more than just a comedy.
Aug 13, 2016You're the Worst's first season is dirty, twisted, sweet, and hilarious in all the right places. Its format may be similar to that of other shows that focus on relationships (i.e. Love, Catastrophe), but You're the Worst outdoes its peers in a very crucial element: character chemistry. Jimmy and Gretchen are quite possibly the most self-destructive couple in television history, but they're also fully human and relatable, with Chris Geere and Aya Cash simply being the actors that were born to play them. It also touches on dark content from drug use to depression, yet this never demeans the show's affable tone, and the laughs are big all season long! A great debut season for the best rom-com on television.
Jan 01, 2016You're The Worst is freshly original and has some very funny moments, and it boasts palpable chemistry from leads Geere and Cash. Sometimes they can be grating as far as being characters, but that's what makes this show different. However, I can see this show getting stale sooner than later.
Nov 14, 2015This is a funny show. Well cast and unique characters and it very racy. Good stuff.
