My One Cool Thing this week is You’re The Worst, a FX show created by Stephen Falk.
You’re The Worst revolves around a man and a woman who are the worst humans, as the show wants you to believe. It’s a hilarious adult rated comedy about sex, relationships, and awkward social encounters. But within all that it has an uplifting core about friendship. It reminds me of shows like Cougar Town and Happy Endings.
Although there are bit players, You’re The Worst has a small regular cast consisting of Jimmy, the blonde Brit, who lives with his friend/slave PTSD suffering Edgar, and Jimmy’s latest fling, PR executive Gretchen. Lindsay is Gretchen’s best friend and married a man for his money.
Jimmy and Gretchen are the worst and the best.
