Thirty Days of Blogging: Day 18
I've watched most of "You're the Worst" on demand in the last two days. It's a new series that just finished its first season on FX. It's about two misanthropic, generally selfish and unpleasant people who get together for a one-night stand and then gradually, despite their best efforts to the contrary, grow attached to one another. The male hero is a sharp-tongued British writer; the female lead is a blasé and brittle LA publicist. The whole thing's set in LA's uber-hip Silverlake district, which allows it to do some funny riffs on Los Angeles culture (such as it is). It's nothing fantastic, but it holds my interest.
