Watch You're the Worst

This show is a romantic sit-com. Gretchen (Aya Cash) is a music publicist who is allergic to romance. Jimmy (Chris Geere) is an embittered British novelist. When they meet, sparks fly, in both a good way and a bad. When the friction and sparks between them aren't rubbing each of them all wrong, they are lighting up their lives.

These two smart but sharp-tongued and somewhat cynical young people fall in love in spite of themselves. The charm of the show has a special appeal for some members of the Millennial generation portrayed therein. You could call it modern love meets real life and real personalities. Instead of unrealistic warm, fuzzy characters who spout platitudes and who experience love as a frictionless fulfillment of their childhood fantasies, this is love as experienced by two adults with real careers and strong personalities who must then hash out their differences.

A combination of acerbic wit and outrageous situations form the back-drop for exploring the lives and love of this couple. Gretchen is surprisingly likable in spite of bad habits like being a slob and showing up at work hung-over more than she should. Similarly, her beaux is charming in spite of himself.
