Spell Saab

First of all, I want to say thank you to my blog reader Cel for leaving a comment on one of my posts and telling me about this TV show.

Saab, I think you’re gonna like You’re the Worst! Medyo off beat na rom-com pero super funny!!!

I had never heard of it before so I did a quick Google search and found this short blurb about it:

“You’re the Worst” isn’t a typical romantic comedy. Narcissist Jimmy Shive-Overly thinks all relationships are doomed from the start, while stubborn cynic Gretchen Cutler is certain that amorous bonds aren’t her thing.


It’s the funniest show I’ve seen since God-knows-why-but-now-cancelled Happy Endings! The writing is incredibly witty and the cast is perfect! There’s a lot of adult content so ignore this post if you’re one of my younger blog readers hehe but wow this show is so relatable without trying too hard.

Do not watch this if you’re going through a rough break up because the #FEELS will make you feel extremely shitty. Hahaha. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, but if I were you I’d watch it anyway because it’s just so funny and super kilig in a non-cheesy way. And isn’t that the best kind of kilig? It premiered last July and currently has 10 episodes. I pray this doesn’t get cancelled.

I literally saw the whole season twice in 2 days, first with Lauren and the second time with Jim. I predicted he would have a crush on Gretchen and I was right. We agreed she looks like a mix of Paramore’s Hayley Williams and FRIENDS’ Rachel Green (yes, Rachel and not Jennifer!). Haha! I’m super crushing on Jimmy the self-absorbed writer who looks like a mix of Chris Martin, Hugh Grant and Beck.

Have you seen the show? Do it!

P.S. Fat Lindsay is the trainwreck friend we all need.

    I watched this series last summer and got so. damn. hooked. I wish I watched it later so I didn’t have to wait so long for the next season. During the time I watched it, they weren’t sure whether it was going to be renewed so along with all the fans we were all nail-biting waiting for the renewal announcement. THANK GOODNESS IT WAS. Can’t wait for Season 2 of Jimmy and Gretchen’s shenanigans.

    I like the “TV Club” idea and because of your previous post about TV series, I tried some on your list and the suggestions from the comment section and I’ll try this too. :D I read that they renewed this for another season with 13 episodes. :)

    Ah, I love this one too! Can’t wait for season 2 (woops)!! Please check out Silicon Valley if you haven’t yet! It’s probably one of the funniest TV shows I’ve seen. It’s kind of geeky comedy without the need of using too much laugh track to make it funny.

    After I read your thoughts on the show, I immediately downloaded the episodes and did a marathon….worth the puyat!!! I agree with you on “it’s nakakakilig but not in a cheesy way”. I like that kind of kilig…not pretentious, just real. :D

    It’s become a habit for my partner and I to watch something after a day’s work. Gladly I saw this post few days ago, so I suggested that we see it tonight. Boy was I glad we did! It’s super funny! We’ve just finished episode 4 (tutuloy pa sana kaso we really have to get up early pa mamaya).
    The thing that hit me the most was the fact that we kinda started like them. Avoiding being “normal” ‘cuz we were both too afraid to get attached and get hurt in the end. I dunno yet about Gretch and Jimmy, pero my partner and I still have each other, together with our 3 boys, filled with that spark that started everything.
    Ok sorry for being too mushy, it’s just that this show left me feeling good. Hehe! Nga pala, you had a super lovely wedding. (Thx to all the IG posts!) Congratulations to you and Jim!
