Jimmy is a smart, insensitive lone-wolf with an excess of confidence. Gretchen is a smart self-destructive other lone-wolf suffering from clinical depression. They meet.

You’re the Worst is the story of their relationship, or lack thereof, as they bring both of their single attachments to friendship to the scene, Edgar, a war-veteran who suffers from PTSD, and Lindsay, Gretchen’s sloppy best friend who married a nerd for his money.

As a single-camera sitcom You’re the Worst acts as if it cares about the standards of the genre, but especially in season 2 where it deals with Gretchen’s clinical depression, it actually emerges as an innovative, realistic and fearless series about relationships. Smartly written, and features electric chemistry between Aya Cash and Chris Geere as the two leads. You’re the Worst starts as the perfect no-brainer, watch-two-episodes-over-dinner-every-night, until the plot captures you and you find yourself so hooked that you can’t watch anything else.
