.. And I just wanted to say how much I love this show for how deeply it relates to people like myself and others who struggle with mental disorders. I just remember the first time I saw Gretchen's scene in the episode where she just snaps, and how then I cried my eyes out with how much I related as someone who has had crazy manic highs and the deepest of lows.
Man I heart these guys. Wish this wasn't the last season coming up.
Okay - so I guess the whole thing wasn't a bust. In season 4 of You're the Worst they make a Mad Men reference by having Gretchen replicate Megan Drapers rendition of Zou Bisou. When I watched this, I was watching with my girlfriend who had not seen Mad Men - so I didnt say anything.
Just recently, we have started working our way through seasons of Mad Men. When we got to the Season 5 premier with the Zou Bizou bit, I was mentally ready to mention the YTW reference, but before I could - look who I found!
(sorry/notsorry about the link)
So, thinking that was Aya Cash, I was like "oh man that is brilliant - she was on the episode that they referenced - such a good Easter Egg"
After looking around for longer than I care to admit turns out that it wasnt actually Aya Cash in Mad Men (IMDB didnt list her but I thought it might have been un-credited). Looks like it was this person according to a small town blog:
I started back in 2016, it was the one hour season finale of Season 3. I never watched the show before that except the promos. But I incredibly enjoyed that episode that I missed an episode of AHS: Roanoke. Didn't matter, decided to binge watch the entire show, and loved it ever since.
When did you start watching?
I saw a promo for the FX+ service and they were showing clips of the various shows that stream on it. I saw a couple sitting on a table with a candle lit cake between them a la "Sixteen Candles". The "clip" was probably less than 1 second, but I could have sworn it was Gretch and Jimmy. Anyone else see this?
So, being Australian I went to do my rewatch of the series just before the new season should start getting released, but my old faithful website has finally failed.
Could anyone please point me in the the right direction for an Australian to find this show? It’s damn near impossible!
Thank you kindly!
That season 5 will have them doing something more heinous than anything done before. I just finished watching S4 episode "Not a great bet" again and can't imagine much worse than Gretch forcing an underage kid to eat cat food for a blowjob. How much worse can it possibly get?
On my rewatch, things I noticed:
The skate kid rappers is a dead giveaway. That was Odd Future's entire niche when they blew up in 2011.
They reference having met while "skating on Fairfax," which is where Supreme and other street wear brands have popular stores and a mini-skatepark. Odd Future has been known to hang out there regularly.
Sam opening the water bar. Tyler the Creator (lead of the group) is famously straight-edge.
Sam's arc in season 2, where he breaks from the group and feuds, was similar to where the group was going around the time the show started airing.
The song they were rapping to the churchgoers sounds a lot like Sandwitches.
The whole thing about Sam getting sucked off. Tyler the Creator hints at being bi in songs and interviews.
Maybe missing other things. I'm on s2ep10
I'm bingeing the show right now, about to start S04, I can't be the only one who thinks Vernon (Todd Robert) is a poor-man's Tom Hanks. The pop culture references and insults come so fast I can't believe they left that reference on the table.
Or is it just me?
Been re-watching for the past week or so. It's amazing how much this show has changed in tone and depth, for better or for worse. I totally missed the Killian subplot and and it's interesting seeing how over the course of their relationship they slowly start to lose touch with casual friends, like the work wife.
And god, I'm 100% certain Shitstain and the crew are based off Odd Future. Definitely feels more accurate realizing the first season was in like 2014 when they were more prominent
That's probably where their relationship is headed but since the upcoming season will be the last, we may not see it unless there's one or more flash-forwards. They'd probably be good parents, eventually, after a hilarious series of events and learning moments for both of them. At various points they'll turn the pregnancy/parenting thing into a competition, both with each other (fastest diaper change, who gets the kid to sleep faster, how long the kid stays asleep, etc) and other parents they know even if they don't involve or tell the other parents (i.e. whose kid "wins" at playing blocks or which parents "win" at Lamaze class ). Consciously or not, they'll want to be better parents than they think their own parents were.
Gretchen barely takes care of her own shit so her brand of prenatal care could be scary, or it could really change her.A fetus would (hopefully) bring all of Gretchen's alcohol/cigarettes/cocaine/crack habits to a screeching halt. It'd be interesting to see whether she'd "parent the shit" out of her child or be the sort of mom who lets her kid eat sand and go to daycare/school in whatever clothes are clean enough.
Jimmy has apparently entertained the notion of children but the realities of fatherhood might lead to him freaking out a lot He would no doubt take issue with the sleepness nights and avoid changing diapers while also being very protective about the cleanliness of who touches/holds his child. He'd promise to quit drinking & smoking out of solidarity but actually consume as much of them as fast as he can when Gretchen isn't around. I'm picturing Jimmy putting plastic on everything that Gretchen sits on so that it's not soiled when her water breaks. Imagine him baby-proofing the house. That is, protecting his home & belongings from a child. He'll read parenting/baby books and critique them, not for accuracy of information, but grammar and literary style. Oh, and the "bedtime stories" he reads would be erotic, vulgar, and/or gruesome.
I think she was imitating his family members or maybe trying to make a joke or something. Do you remember which episode it was?
A television subreddit dedicated to the FX tv show You're The Worst. It is centered on Jimmy (Chris Geere), a self-involved writer, and Gretchen (Aya Cash), a self-destructive Los Angeles PR executive. These two toxic personalities attempt a relationship.
