i just saw the second season again, it's so bitter and sweet, sad and funny, i love it.

avatar

This is probably the best show to ever come out of Australia.

avatar

This show quickly grew on me. The way it blends comedy and heartfelt emotion is superb. So yes, Please Like Me... yes, I like you, I like you a lot. I like you so much I am sad that I have to wait for series 4.

avatar

just finished binging 2 seasons and wow i have no words to describe how amazing, funny, accurate, relatable and at the same time awkward as hell this show is. **12/10 please give it a shot, dont let it rot in your watchlist**

I quite enjoy Josh Thomas's stand up and this series came to me highly recommended. However, this show lacks the energy of a stand up routine so with long slow periods between jokes that aren't worth the wait. This is not a comedy. It is first and foremost a drama, but it's hard when there's no sense of direction. The story moments just seem to happen without appearing to fit within any story or character arcs. For example, the series starts with the end of Josh's last heterosexual relationship. Is the story arc about how he finds a new relationship? Nope. Next story beat [spoiler]he gets a boyfriend. Is the story arc about how he (and the people around him) cope with the realisation that he's gay? Nope. A couple quick jokes and everyone (Josh included) immediately accepts his homosexuality.[/spoiler] Every time it appears like an interesting arc is being set up, it immediately fizzles out. It lost my interest half way through the first episode, and although I endured watching until the end of the second episode, I was not rewarded for my persistence.

i watched it so fast. i'm really sad it's over

What a great show. Loved every minute of it. Watch all 4 seasons on Netflix.

_Please Like Me_ is perfect. It's a perfect television show.

avatar

I can only describe this show as 'perfectly awkward'. I adore how it skips across the balance beam of comedy and drama, depicting some incredibly realistic situations and life events that range from hilarious to depressing, without wallowing in either of them. This is not a tearjerker about depression, or a rofl-comedy, but that perfect sardonic middle where all characters are both likeable and flawed. Showrunner, writer, and lead Josh Thomas has said it is based on his own life. Although his unique voice was a bit of a hurdle at first, I quickly warmed to his, and other characters. Give it a few episodes at least :)

The way this show blends being hilarious one moment and devastatingly real the next makes it unique and amazing
