After a terrific, ambitious second season, 'You're the Worst' returns to prove the best is still to come. Season 3 opens with Jimmy and Gretchen adjusting to life after saying I love you. Edgar and Dorothy have sexual problems. Lindsay and Paul start a new hobby.
You're the Worst is addicting once it's back on air and despite the slightly worrisome state the characters have been introduced into this year, it looks to be a slightly lighter season but with enough character moments to tide us over.
The reason why the series remains one of TV's most slyly affecting comedies: The joke is, pain and laughter often emerge from the same broken places, and You're the Worst is as funny as a knife in the side.
What makes the season tick is its characters' recognition of the importance of their erratic progression, giving additional weight to the events of last season even as Jimmy tries to circumvent the significance of the finale.
