12. 'You're The Worst' (FX)

"Let me tell you how relationships work: You cheat, and then she cheats, and then one day you wake up and he's gone, none of your stuff works, and you're having crabby puffs with some British guy." You're the Worst is the rawest of TV rom-coms, with Aya Cash's Gretchen and Chris Geere's Jimmy as a couple-or-whatever who share "I don't do feelings" as a way of life. (They've got sexual PTSD, which stands for previously taken or sucked dicks.) So they can't understand why having sex gets so messy — almost as if they're falling in love or some dumb stuff like that. Steven Falk's cult hit hits even harder in its second season, as these two find out each other's dirtiest secrets. Gretchen's "side bitch" sneaks out to cry alone in her car; Jimmy prefers to have wet dreams about Janis Joplin in the shower: "Yeah, Janis was a no-go. Pivoted to Grace Slick at the last second, so it wasn't a total waste." Feed your head.
