The perfect ending, for our favorite perfectly imperfect couple.

All I asked for was that You're the Worst not ruin itself in its last season. What I got was a finale that quickly rocketed to my all-time favorite show ending ever (sorry, Six Feet Under).

The gambit in "The Intransigence of Love" is one of the show's best to date.

Jan 14, 2019 | Full Review…

As a 1990s romance this story hits every note like a decent cover song.

Jan 15, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a fitting send-off for a show that is ending at the right time; truly, there's only so much more deplorable behavior from these Californians that we could happily continue to tolerate.

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

There's definitely more going on in "You're the Worst" than clever put-downs and romantic sentimentality, though.

If nothing else, [the premiere] shows that just because the series is in its last season, it doesn't mean that it has any intention of slowing down or to stopping being the weird little show we all love.

Jan 11, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

[Jimmy and Gemma] will definitely be put through the ringer this season as they plan their wedding, but Falk gives them the reprieve they deserve in the premiere... It's the beginning of the end of their love story.

Cribbing heavily from movies like High Fidelity, Notting Hill, even Weird Science... and somehow garnering an appropriate, heartfelt emotional response when the time is right.

Audience Reviews for You're the Worst: Season 5

    What a perfect, silly, messy end to a brave and lovely show. I'm going to miss it.

    You're the Worst concludes spectacularly, finely realizing the show's acerbically bittersweet tone. Coming to the inevitable endgame that is marriage, Gretchen and Jimmy have to look commitment in the face, even if growing up seems like the last thing on either of their minds. All the characters are even more deplorable in their actions this year, with some scenes even getting a little too outrageous (an episode where Gretchen gets violently drunk with interns particularly comes to mind), but there is never a shortage on laughs or top-tier writing and filmmaking, and the build-up to the finale is sublime. This season introduces a flash-forward motif early on that suggests a not-so happy ending for the pair, but the results go out in unpredictable fashion, and it really feels like the only thing that would have really worked for a You're the Worst finale. After a cumulative and very satisfying five-year run, we can now say this without hesitation: You're the Worst is the best rom-com in television history!

    one of my favourite shows.

    Wow! I can't believe it is rated so high. I loved the first couple seasons, but now I just want it to end. Not funny and often painful to watch, especially the last episode (9). I'm just hanging in there for a hopefully redeeming end. Sorry guys, I was your biggest fan at one time.

    The characters are complex, the writing avoids all the television romantic cliches and it���s shot beautifully. If you���re looking for a classic sitcome with 5 punchlines every minute, you may be disappointed, but if you���re into shows with comedic and dramatic elements that isn���t afraid to explore dark places, this is an amazing show.

    I am the worst kind of person. This series convinces me of this searing truth. Get to know me by watching this series. You won't regret it as much as having me in your life.
