    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    <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>

    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 watch

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
