Did You Know?


Since 2004, Paul Rudd has participated in a long-running gag every time he has appeared on Conan O'Brien's television programs, ostensibly to promote whatever project he is starring in at the time. But instead of a clip from that real movie or TV show, he instead always shows the same clip from the 1980s children's sci-fi adventure movie (and McDonald's advertisement) "Mac and Me," in which a child's wheelchair breaks, runs out of control, and sends the kid careening over a cliff; the alien "Mac" pops up at the end of the clip to save him. When Rudd appeared on O'Brien's show to promote "Living with Yourself," the appearance followed the same format: Rudd pretended to have brought a clip from the real show and even described which scene from "Living with Yourself" the clip would be from, but when it rolled it was instead, once again, the same clip from "Mac and Me"--with one difference: at the end, instead of one Mac popping up, the clip had been digitally altered so that two Macs appeared (a nod to "Living with Yourself"'s cloning theme).

Pretty damn brilliant if you ask me...
24 October 2019 | by ava_everSee all my reviews

"Living with yourself" is based on a rather unoriginal concept, yet comes across as super original. Make sense?

So basically this guy (Paul Rudd) hates the way his life is going. He is unmotivated, uninspired, and depressed. Right when he's lost all hope, "Miles" is recommended by his friend to go to this weird, techy, magic, voodoo spa thing (where all hell will soon ensue).

Low and behold a clone of miles is made, the exact same version of himself except well, he's better in absolutely everything, so actually, he's not the same at all.

It's the most perfect execution of self vs self i've ever seen on television. Miles is in this incredible war with, well, literally himself. He's fighting for his job, his wife, his sanity, the list goes on.

It's a complex idea portrayed in an incredibly simplistic manner. At times may comes across as dull or boring, but for all the right reasons. This show has a very deep underlying meaning that won't appeal to everyone. I think it's pretty damn brilliant for that reason exactly.

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.

Paul Rudd is absolutely magical in this role and Aisling Bea is the perfect co-star.

I'm excited to see where the show goes after this first season..!
