I enjoyed it.

The various interchanges in the time-line of the story are quite confusing at times.

This little tale could have been told breezily in 90 minutes, but it was dragged out over eight episodes.

I loved the premise from the get-go: a person who simply wants to change his life for the better gets an unexpected turn in the face of a clone of his.

Great script, however silly this story may sound at first, it is credible and fascinating from the start.

Most entertainingly engaging TV show since Bored To Death for me.

Watched it through hoping it would get better because the concept is OK, but it just remained painfully dull.

There were also so many pointless scenes in it that it would probably have been a better 90 minute movie instead.

Overall, the series is unique and refreshing, let's hope that they slow down a bit if it's renewed!

Engaging series, slightly disappointing ending .

Simply boring .

Totally worth watching!

Great amazing fantastic worth watching I finished the show on 1 day

I recommend you spend your time on something else, because "Living with yourself" is just, well, bland.

It is entertaining to see where Paul Rudd takes you as just when I think what is going to happen next, he throws a curve ball at you.

Stunning season 1.

I binge watched this and though dont see it as an exciting show, it struck me on how many views there are to a relationship.

There were endless opportunities to have fun and satisfy viewer curiosities but instead it immediately jumped on to the petty train and it is unbearable to watch.

Two-stars, just because they managed to waste my time for 5 episodes.

Ultimately all rather pointless.

It's probably best not to know too much about this, but it's got an intriguing and clever conceit that keeps you wondering where it's going.

What a pointless, boring series!!!

It does a great job of keeping you on the edge of your seat.

This literal interpretation is fairly entertaining.

Enjoyed it even the wacky ending of the final episode.

Unbelievably dull .

More interesting than entertaining, but I found it quite compelling.

Just a(nother pointless) Netflix Original(?

I was ok with the cliche couple, stagnated relationship, trying for a baby set up.

The comedy value brought to the screen by both Bea and Rudd is undoubtedly entertaining at times.

The concept was intriguing, it could have been a trite series, and it almost wasn't, except for a bit of a predictable ending.

Perhaps the worst part is how slow it is.

I was glued to it since E1 and it was so engrossing that i didn't even notice i had spent 2 hours straight watching 3 more.

A pleasant surprise and very entertaining .

The characters - both of him, and her, as well as the minor ones - are all rather dull and unlikable, so it's difficult to care about any of them.

It's just kind of boring .

Some episodes or parts of episodes are done very very well, however sometimes full episodes or parts of episodes seem pointless and tedious.

I wouldn't say it's a show one would get emotionally invested to, character development is meh, but it is really entertaining and easy to follow.

Highly enjoyable & entertaining.

Tedious and sloppy .

I have binge watched the whole season in one night and I really enjoyed it all.

Funny but repetitive...

I highly recommend it.

I was on my phone the whole time as I was bored there is not a single interesting character.

Incredibly dull.

Colourful visuals and engaging storyline with each episode.

It's easy to binge watch, specially due to Paul Rudd's acting, who performs two different personas in a very compelling way.

Intriguing .

Some shows manage this rollercoaster well, but with Living with Yourself it came off quite disjointed, almost like there were a number of different directors each trying to put their stamp on it.

Paul Rudd is an enjoyable watch.

the colors are dull, the camera placement is unimaginative and the speed at which this show moves is like a snail!!

Episodes go back on eachother in what I assume is supposed to be an artistic choice, but instead it just gets repetitive real quick.

This show is constantly entertaining and every episode makes you want to watch this next.

It's got the highly irritating, repetitive, bleepy soundtrack which accompanies all such crap (Maniac).

I kept watching because I expected something exciting or unexpected to happen, but this is a pretty straight forward and formulaic show.

This is really rather good and silly fun from Netflix, who are still streets ahead of the competition when it comes to launching unexpected bingeworthy shows.

Also, how can you possibly make 20 minute episodes with boring parts?

The show is very twisted and unpredictable.

Paul Rudd is enjoyable to watch!

We were so very bored the last few episodes were mainly fast forwarded.

It is a slow slow burn, but well well worth the time and multiple viewings.

Really intriguing series .

Instead we have endless, needless repetition, and we are forced to watch each and every of the boring main characters' point of view: again, and again, and again, in order to "comprehend" what and why - come on Netflix,we are not as stupid as you think we are.

The whole first few episodes are this drawn out explanation of him going back and forth to this spa with virtually no other story line.

How can a show with Paul Rudd be so boring.

The show starts off with a promising start, offering a slightly kooky but surreal feel, but the drama often feels cliched and formulaic, often dipping into the melodrama genre.

I started watching this and was drawn in at first but then realized how boring this show actually is once the concept folds into your mind that it's so freaking stupid and unrelatable it makes me question why a great actor like Paul Rudd would waste his talent on this.

Overall this was not for me mostly because it was kind of slow/boring/predictable/not what I was expecting.

Very entertaining .

Kind of depressing but also enjoyable!

Nothing happens outside of the first episode.

Such an unexpected find .

Dragged out much?

The premise is interesting, but somehow they managed to make it boring.

Watch it if you are bored .

And while some parts are a little predictable, it is still refreshing and different.

Every episode is entertaining.

There could've been a better ending but overall.. it was enjoyable and a great act from Paul Rudd.. I hope I can see more from him, in future.

Right when i was getting bored of Netflix, this shows up.

I enjoyed it, and Paul was amazing playing 2 different characters as himself.

don't waste your time

Creative and Intriguing, Can't Wait for Season 2 .

An enjoyable unoriginal show.

In fact it's somewhat draining and dull to watch.

Mind blowing .

It should resonate and be enjoyable for the majority of people.

The style, tone, and writing are all charming and intriguing.

Very entertaining, except that both characters played by Paul Rudd are almost old enough to be Aisling Bea's father so it's a little creepy.

This show is a blend of humour and drama well blended together to make each episode compelling.

And this show is better than the movie, and tries to be with the binge/serial approach, and a very clever, Tarantinoeque way of starting each episode in a situation that you're not sure of, and then it takes the entire episode for the episode's beginning to make sense, and it's very suspenseful and funny, although the humor you have to wait for.

Engrossing and exciting .

Enjoyed it more than I thought.

Embarrassingly predictable .

Very Enjoyable .

The tone feels right and each episode is intriguing on its own.

Enjoyed it and then quit.

Rudd-iculous waste of time watching this series.

In the end, it is an enjoyable show with a twisted plot and interesting characters.

Soooooo boring .

Otherwise I really enjoyed it.

Paul Rudd has already proven to be an extraordinary actor, both in comedy and drama, So Hearing that there was a show coming out with Paul Rudd as two characters was already exciting.

It took a few episodes to gel, but ultimately came together and at eight snappy episodes, it's easily bingeable in a few sittings.

However, it went a bit bland in the last 2 episodes and I see no reason to watch a second series I can imagine it turns into the usual tripe of 'escapades' between the main characters and their quirky dilemma.

#LivingWithYourself is so strange, bold, profound and unpredictable.

It's fair to say it's a very entertaining series.

So, trying to find some ulterior meaning is a waste of time.

Really enjoyed it and I really hope there is another season to follow soon!

Someone who is more attractive, more enjoyable and better at your work.

A disappointingly boring show.

An enjoyable clone of "Multiplicity" .

Overall this was a very enjoyable series and I highly recommend this to anyone who is hesitant on watching this.

Surreal but entertaining .

It was boring.

Then there is the cliche boss, the friend who, again, do very little.

The lack of subtlety and nuance associated with this new show is disappointing, to say the least, and makes a very interesting premise fodder for a fairly mundane sitcom-like experience.

Very well done, and worth the watch!

I enjoyed that series because like this it was out on the edge of reality and it turns into an alternative reality at that.

I was hooked pretty much from the start and felt the humor and the excitement equally enjoyable.

And that unexpected cameo was a laugh out loud moment.

Enjoyable and easy to watch.
