When a plane crashes on a deserted island on the way to Thailand, the remaining survivors of the crash struggle to get along and heads clash as they have differing views on how to stay alive and how they will get off the island.
You're the Worst really is the best (black) comedy (with heart) on television right now. Chris Geere and Aya Cash have incredible screen chemistry together and the supporting roles including Desmin Borges and Kether Donohue round up a solid cast. Brandon Michael Taylor is delightful as well, playing an up-and-coming rapper with a hilarious entourage.
Most rom-coms run out of fuel once the clichéd "Will they? Won't they?" part is resolved, whereas You're the Worst starts off precisely here – when things begin to get interesting (in real life). As television critic Andy Greenwald points out, "life doesn't get boring once coupledom starts. [ ] It's a failure of imagination and, quite often, writing to suggest otherwise." The series will hopefully be renewed for a second season on FX, but regardless what the future holds in store, there's only one way this ends whether it's in a week or twenty years, there's horrible pain and sadness ahead
