Love TV show review

I have lots of mixed feelings towards this show after only the first season. 5 hours of content and I already have a love/hate relationship with this shit… Love is a new Netflix show that is very clearly the brain child of Judd Apatow. I have to say that I am STOKED that they finally game Apatow a show again. He will do amazing things with this but I can’t promise I won’t hate him afterwords. Love is a love story… Kind of. Love is a love story if you like stories that are uber realistic and make you question happiness and the moral standing of people themselves… Let me start over…. Love stars Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs. They are polar opposites, and by polar I mean glacial-fucking-ice. He is a geeky, overly nice, socially awkward guy. She is a Heavily addicted to everything, mean girl. They kind of remind me of extreme versions of Nick and Norah from the movie about their playlist. The awesome part about this show is that those traits don’t define those characters. The characters in this show are deep, and have great stories, and are awesome as individuals. Not JUST the main characters though, but the side characters are people you latch on to and relate to. This is also an extreme binge watchable show. Being made by Apatow, it is basically a 6 hour long movie with most last scenes being the first scene of the next episode. I’m not complaining, I love it… To wrap up though I want to go back to my love/hate relationship with this show. This show thrives on being realistic and real, but towards the end the reality of that is very sad. Not only that but the acting and character building is so good in this show that you live vicariously through these characters and feel everything they do. Most of what they feel is sadness towards the end. It’s really an emotional ride. Speaking of the end, be prepared to scream at your screen by the end… So, if you think you can handle all that, definitely watch this.

  1. Binged watched this show when it came out. Overall I liked it, I felt that the writing is manipulative at some parts also a tad unrealistic. But it is quirky and has some charm into it. And that’s what made me like it.
