  1. You're the worst is genuinly one of the most real and funny TV Shows out there. There's no laughtrack and it all seems real and the comedy and sometimes drama hits you very real, trust me.

  2. We worked together for a year at the wine shop at the top of Guildford High Street when we were students… What the f**k have I been doing with my life?!?

  3. I love how in our Western end of the World we worry about true love or what not. In the rest of the World is more like "get married", "have children", and "make a living". People don't worry about frivolous things. This romanticized notion of Love is a construct of bored wealthy people. We have too much free time in our hands, are pampered little bitches driven insane by our spoiled life. People who have to live on a day to day basis not knowing if they will be able to feed their families don't have time to indulge in frivolous things such as True Love.

  4. I love this show, been watching it since it first aired on FX, I'm so glad it's finally getting some recognition by the press

  5. I found a totally amusing that Chris went balls down surfing through the crowd,you know where he was going with that…
    and Stephen went balls up… Rofl
    he's like let's play it safe, I'm married!

  6. Loveable. Not because one has to. Any out there, hiding in, with no need? You tell, at least posh, haven't you invaded more sucker shacks, ending up there for other things than courtship?
    Kill Them, you'd think.
