I’m watching…You’re the Worst & The Mindy Project
There have been several “how we met” sitcoms but they always miss the mark for me. Network television seems to force the laughs or make everyone a watered down stereotype. To be honest I didn’t think I would like You’re the Worst (FX). I thought it was going to try too hard to be edgy but this is one of the most refreshing tv rom-coms I’ve seen in years.
As you can tell by the title this isn’t going to be your average meet cute romance but if you can stick with it and past the initial brashness of the characters you’ll be surprised by how romantic and heartfelt this series really is.
Even better is the supporting cast. They are fully fleshed out characters that aren’t relegated to silly sidekick territory. Each one of them could carry the show.
And best of all – I just found out that FX renewed You’re the Worst for S2!
I’m going to link (instead of embed) to the uncensored trailer – it’s a bit NSFW. Don’t be put off if you think the humor is too graphic. I swear – the show is about so much more than that but it is edgy, raunchy and boundary pushing.
Watch it: Season 1 on FX on Demand | Amazon
What the heck took me so long to watch this show? Mindy is hilarious and like You’re the Worst – the characters are inappropriately funny. I love how Mindy takes all the conventional rom-com tropes and turns them on their head.
The finale for S2 is probably the best homage to rom-coms EVER.
Watch it: Season 3 on Fox – Tuesdays at 9:30 | Amazon
