I would recommend this show to anyone with a passing interest in families, friendships, emotions or American culture. To choose just one episode - you may think you’ve watched / understood Dirty Dancing, but you only truly Get It once you hear it lovingly dissected by the hosts of You Are Good. Sarah Marshall’s take on liberalism vs leftism in this movie is as incisive as her obsession with Jerry Orbach’s nipples is joyfully perverted. Alex Steed’s analysis of the subtleties of class struggle in the film, as well as his reflections on the meaning of money earned by chance and that earned by work are shrewd and unsparing. Steed tells a personal anecdote to illustrate his points, exploring the corrosive pressure exerted by families when their children date outside their social milieu. His observations are hilarious, biting and relatable. This show is just getting started, and it’s already one of the greats.
