A show all about sex

The show is all about sex. Causal sex, as much sex as possible, using abortion and plan B on a regular basis, lots of bad language. It’s an okay comedy for adults but this is not okay AT ALL for children or even teens. Even for adults it falls short. The plot is lacking. It’s rather boring and just extremely vulgar and crude.

Is It Any Good?

Phoebe Robinson is every bit as adorable on-screen as she was on her podcast and limited series 2 Dope Queens, and spending a half-hour inside her worldview on her series is a positive delight. Sunny and confident, Phoebe loves her chaotic life and it shows: She's equally at home visiting a drugstore for Plan B after hours as she is on her confessional in-show podcast, which is so blue that it's said some days it's "one long bleep." Even when she's trapped in the kind of sitcom-y personal imbroglios that would crush characters on other shows, she's easy-breezy: "I am a messy bitch," she says in a live social media post to explain herself on the show's first episode, shrugging. "And that's why you love me!"

We do! Robinson is easy to love in any medium (some fans know her only from her podcasts, others from her witty books), and the whole show has a shaggy, just-hanging-out appeal that may remind many of Broad City or Insecure. Everything's Trash goes down easy and feels good, like hanging out with your funniest friend.
