TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: You're the Worst continues to chart serious territory with intelligence, heart, and noxious wit in its third season, even as the anti-rom-com's damaged narcissist protagonists slowly start to get over themselves.

Critic Reviews for You're the Worst Season 3

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (17)

You're the Worst's wonderful third season undoubtedly saw the most psychological and emotional progress yet for its stable of chaotic characters.

Feb 4, 2017 | Full Review…

Don't be fooled into thinking it's just a comedy about awful people... It's actually a much darker examination of all the unpleasant aspects of life... But don't let that scare you, it is still deeply funny and extremely well-written.

Top Critic

The people on the show are cynical, but the show is not. It may not be confident in the ability of its characters in the short or the long term to act on their decency...but it is fully confident of their humanity and would have no direction without it.

The third season of Stephen Falk's incomparable comedy continues to defy expectations - this year, proving to be the most romantic series on television.

You're the Worst remains the visually and verbally bawdiest comedy series on advertiser-supported television.

You're the Worst is one of the best.

Aug 30, 2016 | Full Review…

Showrunner Stephen Falk exploration of relationships makes the show one of the best on television. Few shows have more earned moments than this one.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The reason why the series remains one of TV's most slyly affecting comedies: The joke is, pain and laughter often emerge from the same broken places, and You're the Worst is as funny as a knife in the side.

Sep 6, 2016 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

What makes the season tick is its characters' recognition of the importance of their erratic progression, giving additional weight to the events of last season even as Jimmy tries to circumvent the significance of the finale.

The series' central couple are back to their lovably acerbic ways.

Audience Reviews for You're the Worst: Season 3

You’re the Worst reaches new heights in season 3.

This show continues to bring both drama and light-hearted comedic relief on an episode-to-episode basis. This is truly one of the most entertaining and stunningly relatable shows that has made it's way onto television in quite some time.

Not as much drama or suspense as the first one, as they've settled down more but still an interesting watch. Binged in a week while the others I binged in a day or two.

One of my favorite shows over the last 5 years. Excellent take on the classic romcom sitcom. Dark, twisted and seriously funny! What could go wrong?

This show is probably one of the best i have ever seen. It is brilliant, funny, sad and extremely well written! This is a must see show!

You're the Worst continues to show why it is one of the most intelligent Rom-Com shows ever written. Falk brings new life to old characters with heart-wrenching and beautiful storylines (with a lot of help from the incredible work done by the cast [why does Aya cash not have an Emmy yet?]), while also including the pessimistic humor we all know and love. You're The Worst: Season 3 is a work of art and one can hope it can only get better from here.

Though Season 3 is the show's weakest season by far it is also probably their most impressive mainly because of how different and experimental it is because of it's direction and several single character focused episodes. It also has some of the most compelling plots the show has given us mainly focusing on 3 relationships and the hardships and problems they endure. However the season really does get off to a rocky start juggling too many plots at once and focusing too much on comedy which while absolutely hilarious doesn't nearly have the focus and cohesion the 1st 2 did. However the 2nd half of the season really makes up for it and goes in some very interesting and surprising directions about legacy and identity and in a way this show hasn't before and sets up a very optimistic 4th season that very well could be the show's last. Overall Grade for the Season: A-

The show continues to choose real emotions over the common sappiness of normal rom-coms. The damaged narcissist leads continue to love and struggle like normal relationships. Season 1 and 2 are on Hulu+ and it does take sometime to fully accepted these damaged characters.

While the second season of You're the Worst set an incredibly high-bar with its realized arc involving clinical depression, season 3 is ultimately just as strong, and at times even eclipses it. While the characters remain as cynical as ever (a few of them even taking a turn for insanity), the show's tone couldn't be further from that, and there's always an even ratio between the hilarity and the sorrow. What's more, the season never ceases to surprise, with week-after-week You're the Worst delivering us nigh unbelievable camera work for a sit-com, from a claustrophobic account of PTSD ("Twenty-Two"), to a Birdman-esque long-take heavy ensemble piece ("The Inherent, Unsullied Qualitative Value of Anything"). Still, the show never displays technical craft for pompous reasons, and all these scenarios are used to further dissect the show's complex characters, and their relationships. You're the Worst remains one of the best shows on television, and the heart-breaking season finale suggests that the best is still yet to come.
