'Man Seeking Woman' (FXX)
It's hard enough trying to get back in the dating scene after being M.I.A. for years, but it could be worse. Just ask this FXX comedy's hapless hero Josh Greenberg (Apatow regular Jay Baruchel): You could be forced to endure meeting your ex's popular new boyfriend, who happens to be Adolf Hitler, or suffer the humiliation of losing your penis at a nightclub. Based on showrunner/humorist Simon Rich's short story collection The Last Boyfriend on Earth, this surreal riff on twentysomething single life takes typical romcom scenarios and drops them into a sublimely silly world where blind dates with literal trolls and attending matrimonial ceremonies in Hell ("I hate destination weddings !") are no big whoop. For all its funny, fantastic flights of fancy, MSW captures the experience of mending a broken heart better than most realistic portrayals of rebound sex and alone-again-naturally sorrow. And whoever thought to cast Adult Swim's talk-show terrorist Eric André as Josh's best friend/hipster wingman deserves some sort of medal.
