The best characters on You’re the Worst are anything but. The FX drama starred Chris Geere as Jimmy Shieve-Overly, a grumpy LA writer, and Aya Cash as Gretchen Cutler, a jaded PR exec and Jimmy’s girlfriend. While the final episode aired in 2019, you can rewatch all five seasons on Hulu.

Sometimes comedies showcase the best of people, and sometimes they highlight the worst. While you can’t help but scoff at how audacious these characters are, most of the time you really can’t help but relate. Is Jimmy your favorite character? Or is Edgar your main man? Gretchen and Lindsay are also pretty hilarious, and we can’t forget Sam and his rap trio.
