Ten reasons you should get on the “Man Seeking Woman” train before it leaves the station


January 07, 2016

    If you’ve watched FX lately, you may have noticed trippy commercials for the second season of a comedy known as Man Seeking Woman. Season one was a surprise hit, blending sketch comedy and social satire into a wonderful and ridiculous way. For those who haven’t watched, the show follows a young man, Josh (played by Jay Baruchel, the guy who voiced Hiccup in How to Train Your Dragon), on his quest to find a girlfriend. The twist comes when the show takes every bump in the road to love and amplifies it into a literal mountain. Here are 10 moments from season one that made us ready to watch season two:

 

1)      1) The tea party
    When Josh’s sister, Liz, runs into hard times relationship-wise, she gets some advice from an unlikely source. Her friend’s third-grade daughter and posse talk about their “husbands” and are shocked at Liz’s 27 years of being a bachelorette. 

2)      2) Alien group sex
    Everyone knows that the second you get into a good relationship, you become a 10 in the eyes of every attractive person ever. In Josh’s case, it’s a few aliens from planet Sex. In a moral struggle, Josh must contemplate how to resist their French accents and glowing blue skin.

3)      3) Hitler boyfriend
    
You know how your ex started dating that one horrible person? Josh’s ex dates the actual Hitler. Bill Hader sports a tiny mustache and an electric scooter. Matters only get more awkward when Josh reveals he’s Jewish.

4)      4) Cupid’s intervention
    
In perhaps the most random scene, the gods intervene on a Cupid who has gone off of the deep end. They blame him for the terrible state of today’s dating scene.

5)      5) Troll date
    After Josh’s initial break-up, his sister sets him up with one of her interesting friends. Unfortunately, the friend is a troll. Not the mean internet user type, but the slimy green kind. Unfortunately, Josh makes things worse when he calls her “slimy.”

6)      6) Scared Straight
    What happens when your best friend realizes their favorite bro is getting sucked into a relationship? They intervene. Josh’s best friend does so by sending him to a suburban version of “Scared Straight.”

7)      7) Bro Shelter
    The aforementioned best friend becomes a bit of a hassle for Josh. He and accomplices decide to send said friend to a Bro Shelter, a place where bros go to retire. It’s a hilarious segment with a (sort of?) great message.

8)      8) Mom interrogation
    Josh doesn’t tell his mom anything. When she suspects that he’s leaving out some major details about his dating life, she ties him to a chair and attaches a car battery to him. It’s extreme, but somehow we’ve all been there. 

9)      9) Exorcism
    Getting over feelings for an ex is hard; getting a demon out is harder. Josh’s best friend comes to the rescue when he realized Josh is still being haunted by the memories of his ex. Things climax when an old stuffed animal springs to life.

10)   10) Tabaka
    Leaving a significant other with a close friend of the preferred sex is always a complicated situation. Things get worse when the friend is a monster made of penises. (Yes, you did in fact read that correctly.) Tabaka, beast, is a real stand-out star in the show. If it wasn’t for his profane appearance, he would be on toy shelves across the U.S.
