During the first semester of my senior year of high school, I wrote, directed, and starred in a short film called Natie. The video’s about six and a half minutes long, and I tried to make it as close to an episode of FX’s Louie as I could. A typical episode of Louie tends to consist of a couple extended vignettes, and I wanted Natie to mirror that. Unfortunately, I had no budget, no actors, a terrible camera, and a classroom in the basement of my school. Still, I tried my hardest to make a loving tribute to one of my favorite shows. Let’s take this beat by beat.
When I first heard about FXX’s You’re the Worst, I was skeptical. On the surface, the show seemed overdone and I was uninterested before watching even one second of the show. After my girlfriend and I blew through all 23 episodes of the show in less than a week, I realized my first impression couldn’t’ve been more wrong. The show’s third season premiere continues to be no different—and that’s a good thing.
Gretchen and Jimmy are two people who swore they’d never be in love. They hate everything about relationships, yet somehow end up in one after meeting outside of Jimmy’s ex’s wedding reception. Many months later, the two continue loving to hate each other and the fact that they managed to become what they swore they’d never be: a man and a woman who have fallen hard for each other.
