What I’m Watching: You’re the Worst

You’re the Worst: Season 2, Episode 10 “A Right Proper Story” (B)

Gretchen is in a rut that she won’t easily be able to dig herself out of, and that makes it an interesting time for Jimmy’s family to visit as a result of Gretchen not listening to what Jimmy asked her, which was expressly not to mail what he gave her unless he didn’t find his writing on time. I would have liked to see a more animated Gretchen bond with his family and ultimately defend him under other circumstances, but this show’s more serious focus has her hopelessly trapped in her state, with Jimmy not even close to realizing that he’s doing all the wrong things. Jimmy, however, did look like a saint compared to his family members, excepting the one sister who seems to actually be a good person. His other two sisters, on other hand, are horrible people, and their trip to the supermarket was entirely absurd, with them doing things that even Jimmy wouldn’t dare to do. His father expressing mild support for his life, even just for a moment, was nice, but I think it’s good that this nightmare visit only lasted a few days. I’m not sure why Colleen was nowhere to be found as Edgar gave an attractive young woman a tour of the city, and I preferred Lindsay’s activities, which involved helping Sam with some truly excellent lyrics and partnering with him on his latest track. The two of them should have found each other sooner – they have a lot in common and can do some good ridiculous work together.
