I can't figure out who she reminds me off and it's bothering me. It's not the way she looks but her mannerisms.
I just finished YTW and I can’t help but wonder... Did Gretchen ever read Jimmy’s book dedication? Originally, I thought Jimmy was shoving his book in her face repeatedly (or trying to) because he was proud and wanted to share that in a selfish way. But after watching him flip open the cover and read it, I realized that he wanted her to see the dedication.
Which is beautiful, might I add.
“To Gretchen. Thank you for being alone with me.”
He's got lines in this one. Anyone else see it?
So the book is "My Struggle: Book 1" by Karl Ove Knausgard and I picked it up and read it after discovering it from the show. I figured why not give it a shot. The book, beautifully written, recounts the story between the author and his relationship with his father. The entire series is kind of a Proustian memoir of his life, but the first book focuses solely on the author, his family, and specifically the death of his father who was an alcoholic.
I believe this is an easter egg, and possibly foreshadowing of the death of Jimmy's father in the second season. There are also crazy similarities between Knausgard and Jimmy. The way they speak, they way the write, and their cynical/depressive perspective of the world are just a few. I highly recommend reading it and then watching the show. I highly recommend reading the whole series! They're truly beautiful books.
Anyway, let me know your thoughts.
Throughout the time she was pregnant, she drank much more often than she should have. It seemed like the writers wanted to go somewhere with that, but when she delivered her baby it was like all that drinking never happened. There definitely should have been some consequences for her irresponsibilities as a pregnant woman but there doesn’t seem to be any.
What accent is that? Seriously, I've been trying to figure it out all week. I keep describing it as squeaky to people around me but have been obviously told, that's not how accents work.
I can figure out that Gretchen's is like a traditional southern california with vocal fry "valley girl with fries" kind of voice.
Jimmy is obviously matches his Liverpool upbringing and Edgar's reflects his hispanic backstory.
First post ever.....but in the episode, Jimmy is wearing an awesome white t shirt with an airborne porshe 911, foreign writing and the numbers 78.....I am assuming it is some rally from 1978, but I cannot find any similar images online. Does anybody have any info?
My friends aren't into american series (I live outside the US) so its really nice to find this thread where fellow Worsties are in ❤ I binge watched YtW in just 3 days and I'm really excited, sad too, for the 5th season.
Will definitely try Sunday Funday!
I was reading through this here and noticed a comedy pilot in the running for the fall that would star these two. Looked like something to share here.
It would probably be a fun show after seeing what they've been like on this one.
I'm rewatching season one and in episode 8 "Finish your Milk" I love when Edgar's at the VA and the case worker just really hams it up:
"Hey you're going to have to turn in your hook because this hipsters having bad dweams" "But I use it to pick stuff up" "Nah man, stuff's going to stay on the ground"
Got out of a long term relationship right before last season started, and that was OUR show together, every week from jump.
That was so fucking hard to watch without him next to me, it physically hurt, I didn’t even enjoy it. I hated my ex, I hated jimmy, I hated Gretchen, I hated my life...
All these months later though, I decided to watch it again and.. it was so sweet. Idk.. Forgot how magical it was when everything came full circle with the split screen of them on the phone mirroring the very first episode. So good!
