Get stoked because You’re the Worst is back this week and it’s even funnier than last season. Season two just goes for it and unleashes a whole new level of filthy, filthy awesomeness. Raise your hand if you still have Lindsay’s rendition of Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work” in your head. Kether Donohue has some pipes on her. I hope we get to experience more of that this season. You are not going to want to miss the premiere of You’re the Worst on Wednesday night at 10:30/9:30c on FXX.

Season one ended with that surprise barbeque that changed everything. Paul (Allan McLeod) saw Lindsay (Kether Donohue) try to kiss Jimmy (Chris Geere) and decided that it was time for some “conscious uncoupling.” Paul came clean about his emotional affair. Edgar (Desmin Borges) saved Jimmy with his sleeper hold. Jimmy made things right by asking Edgar to stay with him. Gretchen (Aya Cash) admits to Jimmy that she found the engagement ring. Jimmy explains that the ring was not meant for her. “You and I are inevitable.” He asks her to move in with him, but she refuses until her vibrator burns her place down. Masturbation sure is dangerous.

Season two begins with some interesting cinematic theory. Gretchen, Jimmy, and Edgar are roomies. Gretchen and Jimmy are afraid of being boring, regular old people. They are so much better than that and they owe it to themselves. Party on! You know you are not going to be let down.

Edgar is definitely the voice of reason. He’s actually a beautiful, pure soul hanging out with the devil’s henchmen. Edgar is my favorite character. I really hope they don’t corrupt him. Who wouldn’t want to have him as a roommate? Just wait until you see what he’s cooking up this season. Now that is how you do breakfast, Edgar. What does Edgar dream about? You’ll find out soon enough. Edgar works his magic and it will bring a tear to your eye. Desmin does a beautiful job bringing Edgar to life.

We find out what celebrity Paul really looks like when he meets up with Lindsay. Luckily for him he doesn’t have to use his secret weapon. That could have gotten really ugly, even uglier than Paul’s take on love. Can you believe that guy? Oh, Lindsay!

Things get pretty out of hand. Honeynutz (Allen Maldonado) tells Gretchen exactly what she needs to hear. Will she listen? We are talking about Gretchen. Just wait until next week. I pretty much cried watching next week’s episode. This show is spectacular. Jimmy and Gretchen don’t know when to walk away. They always accept a challenge and it never ends well for them. That means hilariously good television for us. You are not going to want to miss the season two premiere this week on FXX.

You’re the Worst airs Wednesday nights at 10:30/9:30c on FXX.
