    Roquemore and Miller’s chemistry is undeniable, and they embody their characters believably. “Cherish the Day” is a sweet, sexy, realistic depiction of a modern romance, led by wonderfully natural performances.

    Two engaging leads and a witty script make Cherish The Day a show that immediately draws you in.

    Cherish the Day tries too hard to guide us in how we’re supposed to feel, instead of—like Gently—letting us run headfirst down the path to admire a splendid flower, discovering it on our own.

    Good performances, thoughtful series, but saddled with a grim inevitability.

    What "Cherish" proposes instead is that viewers invest in the relationship itself, and its characters. All television series ask that audiences to some degree, but with "Cherish" success is almost entirely dependent on how engaged a viewer is with whether Gently and Evan will make it. And for some people, that may not be enough of a mystery to remain interested.

    It invites respect by paying it first. But Cherish the Day's first few episodes also suggest a show so adoring of its characters that it robs the storylines of their necessary tension. ... The result is a pair of charm bombs detonating on both sides of a cardboard cutout.

    “Cherish the Day,” a new OWN series from multi-hyphenate Ava DuVernay, ostensibly has all the pieces to make a satisfying romance, and an intriguing structural premise, but nonetheless has trouble gelling altogether.
