“Married" and "You're the Worst” are big steps back for FX
“'Married' (and 'You're the Worst') traffic in masturbation jokes that seem dated even for high schoolers, but apparently some people never mature in their ability to express male-female struggles on any other level than the lowest and easiest one,” says Tim Goodman. "The ‘Married' pilot is forced, mostly unfunny and tragic in that you immediately want to root for (Nat) Faxon and (Judy) Greer, two very funny and very likable comic actors, to have better material. The entire cast gets an infinitesimal increase in material in future episodes, but it's difficult to recommend anyone sticking around while Married tries to improve its foundational flaws. 'You're the Worst' is even a — oh, fine, here goes — worse pilot, with the whole production seeming unsure of itself.” PLUS: “You’re the Worst” is the surprisingly smarter show, it’s actually quite gooey, “Married” is the far more substantial series, “Married’s” pilot is a nasty piece of work, both shows are pretty depressing, and both hilariously demolish rom-com conventions.
