YOU’RE THE WORST — one of the best shows on television last year — is premiering its second season on FXX on Wednesday, September 9th. And if you haven’t had the time to check out the series, the entire first season is now streaming on Hulu. (The first three episodes are free to everyone, but in order to unlock the the last seven episodes of season 1, you have to subscribe to their service. On the bright side, you can get two weeks free.)

The show, on the surface, is about two not-always-great people who reluctantly find themselves in a relationship with each other. But really, while the show follows Jimmy and Gretchen’s blossoming relationship, it’s just as much about them finding their own way and exploring their friendships with their not-sidekicks Lindsay and Edgar, too. It’s funny, it has heart, and it is absolutely worth your time to watch.

But in case you need a little bit more convincing, I asked YOU’RE THE WORST creator Stephen Falk to share why he feels newbies should check out the comedy.

“I think this is the type of show that is incredibly dense and well-structured, I think — tooting my own horn — but is an absolute breeze to watch,” he said. “It doesn’t build up on your DVR. It’s fun, it moves fast. I think it’s deeply, deeply romantic, while also being really funny. If you like romance, and if you’ve ever found yourself involved [with that], I think it’s a very palatable way to get your rom-com on without feelings like you’re watching a Meg Ryan movie from the early ’90s.”
