You're the Worst (season 1 thread) SPOILERS

Is anyone else watching this? I'm loving this show. It reminds me a lot of Happy Endings, which I also loved. FX doesn't seem to have done much in the way of promotion; I'd never heard of it until someone mentioned it on my G+ feed last week.

If you're not watching and you enjoy a good sitcom, give it a try...

I'm watching. The last ep was a little weird. I hope they make it more of an ensemble cast instead of the 3 main plus a few supporting.

And thank you for thread crapping.

I love this show so far and think Kether Donanhue is the break out. I like they are actually giving her character depth and some meat with her marriage issues.

That's a little over the top. Is it now considered bad form to say something bad about a series or episode?

The question was...Is anyone watching this show? I said I watched an episode and said I didn't like it. I guess the thread is only for people that love the show. I will know better next time.

I have just never understood the need to go into a thread and say "it sucks". I figured if the thread had low post count either people did not like it or did not watch. I am sure I am guilty of it but I try not to.

Yes Kether is the "ditzy" friend and my new TV crush

I like the show a lot. The beauty of the two female leads certainly helps.

Yah, I am fascinated by her. If you look at her pics on IMDB she looks totally different in each one.

Very true and if you go to her website she does a lot of voice over work as well.

Wowzer! She's cute.

I'm enjoying the show but I think I'm an episode behind right now. I don't think I'm in love with the show, but I seriously cannot look away.

I watched the whole first season over the weekend. I liked it! A few thoughts:

1. It definitely needed a few episodes to figure itself out. Gretchen was much more appealing (or less "worst") than Jimmy at first. Edgar seemed like a stereotype. The episodes seemed a little out of balance. But they had all that sorted by maybe the fourth ep or so.

2. Somewhere around the halfway point, it seemed like they hit the eject button on whoever Lindsay was supposed to be and started over with her. It was to the point I was wondering if she was still played by Kether Donohue -- she just looked and acted totally different. I thought the new Lindsay worked much better than the old one.

3. There are some surprisingly dirty bits in the show for a basic-cable series!

4. I want Kether Donohue to sing at all of my parties.

5. I liked how they paid off a lot of plot threads at the very end. The ricocheting confessions and accusations at Becca's party were really funny and looped in lots of seemingly random elements from prior episodes really well.

6. I hope this gets renewed.

I think that was true to who the character was. In the first episodes she was playing housewife and trying to fit into something she was not comfortable with. She still wanted to be the fun party girl and slowly was pulled into that side.

I bailed after the first episode. Then I read a rave review of the season by Andy Greenwald and decided to try it again On Demand. I was wrong. It's excellent.

FX is weird in when they announce their renewals. But really hoping this makes the cut. The Bridge too.

I really liked this season. That almost threesome a few episodes ago was wow.

The actress that played Dana. Double wow!
