Love is the newest Netflix show, this time from Judd Apatow, and stars Gillian Jacobs (Community) and Paul Rust (who co-created the show).
The show is a comedy featuring the lives of Mickey (Jacobs) and Gus (Rust) as they try to get their lives together following breakups.
What makes it great is that it spends equal time showing them from both sides, so you can see the thought processes of both, and you get to experience the obliviousness of one side as the other quietly falls for them.
Mickey also faces addictions with drugs and alcohol, which likes to mess with her love life and get in the way of making smart decisions in her quest for Gus’ affection.
“I’ve been asking and asking and I haven’t gotten anything……hoping for love has ****ing ruined my life.” – Mickey
This show is solid, but takes a tad too long to get to the good stuff, which as I’ve said before is crucial for binge-watch shows, and as such gets a 7 out of 10.
