This summer may have been kind of a stinker movie-wise, but TV-wise there’s been a lot to love. Just in the past few weeks we’ve been obsessing over HBO’s The Night Of and USA’s Mr. Robot, sampling Netflix’s The Get Down and catching upon their Stranger Things and BoJack Horseman. And next week brings the season 3 premiere of FXX’s You’re the Worst, to close out the summer and carry us into fall.

But it quickly revealed itself to be something richer and more surprising, honestly grappling with serious material like PTSD and depression without losing its twisted sense of humor. Season 3 promises to pick off right where season 2 left off, which is to say with our four deeply imperfect heroes as hilariously lost as ever. Oh, and it also brings in some promising new characters like Justina, a therapist played by Orange Is the New Black‘s Samira Wiley. Watch the You’re the Worst season 3 trailer below. Read More »

This thing isn’t even vaguely safe for work, which means you probably want to watch it right now. Read More »
