    It should be noted that Geere and Cash are very, very good--they just need better material. (Unfortunately, the rest of the cast, even though they don't get much work, grind the show to a halt--an almost insurmountable problem except that Worst's penchant for trying to shock with crassness is really the stumbling block here).

    Cash and Geere are two talented performers selling this mess as best they can, but mostly the show suffocates under its own feeling of brashness.

The female lead is like a raunchier version of Zoeey's New Girl and the male lead makes me think of Hugh Grant at his comedic best. This show strangely felt more About A Boy (better, funnier) than the terrible NBC version of the same name. This feels like a show Michael Cera could have been cast in as well. The premise is great and I love it when raunchy, edgy comedy has a heart. This one does. Both leads do a great job of presenting themselves as one version (unlike able, mean) yet non-verbally they convey two people who really want to be on some level ...loved, kind, and like able.

In my eyes it is the best discovery since "New Girl" and if this show can not make it, both leads (with their characters) should join the cast of "New Girl". Chris Geere's character as a love interest for Zooey Deschanels Jess - that would be fun. Anyway, I hope "You're the Worst" gets more seasons. Full Review »
