What I’m Watching: You’re the Worst

You’re the Worst: Season 3, Episode 8 “Genetically Inferior Beta Males” (B+)

Gretchen going to therapy has to be one of the best things to happen on this show, though I’m sure that Justina wouldn’t agree since she’s literally ruining her life by turning their sessions around on her and trying to prove to her that she’s more than capable of taking care of herself. Attempting to exert control over all of her friends had mixed to extremely poor results, and I think that should have obvious from the start. Jimmy was prompted to go out and explore the world instead of farming his electronic zoo, and for a man who is extremely intelligent and learned, it’s astonishing just how little he knows about the real world and how it functions. There’s something about the way Jimmy talks that makes his observations infinitely more entertaining. Vernon’s podcast was fantastic, and who would have thought that he and Becca would have been the ones to make him realize that being an author isn’t necessarily his path, and he was just doing up until to this point for his father. Edgar’s Dr. Weed segment seemed to be working decently, and now he’s a mouthpiece for the extremist marijuana people. The worst thing that happened was the result of Paul’s enthusiasm to understand Lindsay’s fetish and to go along with it, which resulted not only in him ruining it for her but also in him apparently getting quite wounded by a certain pain-creating device he was wearing while watching his wife have sex with two men.
