I couldn’t find a thread for this, let me know if there already is one. I watched the first episode and it was fine. All it does it set up the premise for the show, I feel like it could have done more than just that. It wasn’t particularly funny or anything but it was enough to keep me intrigued.
Am I the only one who feels that with stories about clones the most likely thing they’d do is immediately start fucking each other? I bet this show won’t even bring up the idea of Paul Rudd blowing himself. What a shame.October 18, 2019 at 3:52 am #1203142207

Rofl. That’s Pulp fiction right there indeed. Uhm, I have to say a creepy fantasy of mine would indeed be something like that. So many shows rn, I still haven’t watched Limetown‘s 2 first eps, and there’s Modern Love out today as well. Phew.October 19, 2019 at 7:07 am #1203143545
I finished it. This is yet another half-hour Netflix show which is essentially a movie but divided into episodes; all ending on a cliffhanger. Paul Rudd and Aisling Bea have nice chemistry and performances. This reminded me of Russian Doll, but that was way better than this. I wish this was as deep and thrilling as that. Rudd is not winning the Golden Globe though, Ben Platt was superior in terms of material.October 19, 2019 at 7:29 am #1203143566
Two episodes in. It isn’t funny but it’s also not unentertaining. Rudd is better as the clone than the original. Reminds me of Russian Doll a lot.October 19, 2019 at 10:09 am #1203143741
I’m going to start this tonight after I finish with “Modern Love” (good show btw). Will update u guys on Monday or Wednesday when I’m done with it.October 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm #1203143954
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Really disappointing. So many lost opportunities to actually explore what depression and self-improvement mean to a white, middle-aged, middle class suburban man. Instead it glosses over what V2.0 is in relation to his original schlub and just makes it a stupid dickfight bro fest. The wife is utterly unlikeable and miscast despite her one episode where we see why she’s bummed from her POV (because husband, because babies obvs). The ending made me nauseous. The dancing made me queasy. Paul Rudd is a sweetheart though and I’d watch him watching paint dry. Also the editing was interesting.</p>October 19, 2019 at 12:45 pm #1203143965
Hard to be excited by this when Russian Doll was such a recent release (which I didn’t even enjoy), but these responses give me little reason to watchOctober 20, 2019 at 1:47 am #1203144374
This was pretty boring and bad. It’s just 4 hours to be honest. It felt like a 4-hour movie. Rudd is decent, but he won’t be getting near an Emmy nom. Might show up at Globes+SAG tho. Just feels like a desperate attempt on his part to receive some awards recognition. I can tell he’s thirsty, having turned into a big name with no big awards accolades on his name.October 20, 2019 at 2:19 am #1203144384
I saw this thread on the recent topics thing and had no idea what Living with Yourself was. Even though I created the thread. It’s that forgettable. I still haven’t continued past the first episode because I completely forgot I even started it.October 20, 2019 at 5:43 am #1203144491
I’ve watched I really liked it.
I understand why almost everyone here say that the show has a “Russian Doll”-vibe, but I think the show is superior to Russian Doll, tbh.
I don’t think Paul Rudd was decent, I think he was amazing.
He created to very distinguish versions of the same character. He gave us a lot of range and depth.
Aisling Bea is great, and they have a lot of chemistry.October 20, 2019 at 6:56 am #1203144544
I’m really liking this show. Netfliux keeps em coming!October 20, 2019 at 11:13 am #1203144857
I’m not done with this yet but as of now I like it….just don’t love it.

Paul Rudd is the best thing about this show.
Wasn’t exactly fun to watch and it wasn’t that good. Wouldn’t go out of my way to watch this.October 20, 2019 at 3:09 pm #1203145138
Halfway done and so boring. I’m not even sure if I should finish it. Paul Rudd is also not perfoming a spectacular performance either. It’s billed as a comedy series but there isn’t a single funny scene.October 20, 2019 at 9:14 pm #1203145360
I know y’all are out here giving valid criticisms of this show, but off the bat I couldn’t buy that someone would so easily shell out $50k to a spa just because a few people vaguely told them it would make them happier? I know it’s a fantasy, but there isn’t enough legwork in the setup for me to suspend my disbelief.

I gave it three episodes but it was so boring I had to stop. There was nothing original going on and I found it very dull, honestly. I’m surprised to see a warm reaction on here and from critics. I suppose Paul Rudd can still get a Globe nod because he’s Paul Rudd, but the buzz isn’t there for any other recognition.
