You're the Worst: The Sweater People
September 16, 2015 6:41 AM - Season 2, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Jimmy and Gretchen are afraid to stop their careening live-in relationship, even after her client forces her to use a flip phone because "Sleepy bitches only get to use phones made for hookers and drug addicts and irresponsible garbage people!" Lindsay tries to get back together with Paul, more or less on inertia, and Edgar helps talk her down.

I still don't know if this show is all that funny to me but this mixture of charm, contempt and pessimism Jimmy and Gretchen put forth really hooked me during season 1 and I'm glad it's back.

(Nice use of tags, btw, Etrigan.)

Lindsay pregnant is just so wrong. I love her, but she's such a mess, and I want her to be happy, not to push that off even further. Plus you just know it's going to end with Edgar taking care of the baby and being awesome and then being introduced as "the Manny" at parent-teacher-conferences when he has to explain he's actually the defacto dad again.

Hadn't heard of You're the Worst before this weekend, but now I've finished the first season and both released episodes of season 2. I can't remember the last show that pulled me in like that. The pacing and humor matches really well to other shows I've loved [Arrested Development, Archer, Community], looking forward to more.

Andy Greenwald over at Grantland likes it too, he had season 1 as his #2 show of 2014.

Did no one else feel like Aya Cash bears an uncanny resemblance to Ellie Kemper, like some alternative reality where Kimmy Schmidt didn't become a mole woman and grew up to be just as jaded and cynical as a regular human being?

Also Kether Donahue's Lindsay is excellent and would have fit right in with the Archer crew as Pam's slightly less cocaine-addicted sibling.
