Mar 12, 2017Kinda disappoing that the series goes n the direction of unconfordable friendzone situation. The writting and microstories feel unnatural and you feel the serie will not movw foward ever
Mar 16, 2017I never was a fan of the Apatov movies. It's a kind of a blunt introduction, but I kinda like the show.
I mean it is ok. There is more depth emerging from the more tolerant TV series format somehow than from Judd Apatov movies. That is until you realize the one question always pushed forward is how much can you tolerate from one person before saying this is too much about one'sI never was a fan of the Apatov movies.

That is until you realize the one question always pushed forward is how much can you tolerate from one person before saying this is too much about one's behavior and giving up on someone somehow.
How much unanswered doubt can you tolerate about one's lover tolerance, or a friend for what it matters ?
I feel the show pushed the question too far for my own tolerance in the end.
Also, as always on Apatov's makings, the woman's behavior is questioned. The man having the nicer role.
So this is really the same Apatov formula declined on TV really.
The show also feels like a less brilliant version of 'You're the worst' when it comes down to drawing a broader view of 2 seasons of it all.
This is a solid show but too rigid once again, with the recognizable defects (for me) of all Apatov makings. Beyond the good acting, the writing does not seem to evolve fast enough really and realising You're the worst makes a much more fun version of the same subject kinda darkens the positive perception of the show which is still an ok distraction.… Expand
Love is not the solution to these characters’ problems. But love is there, right on screen. Right as advertised. Maybe a fancier title would jazz things up a little bit, but there’s no denying that the show delivers on that promise.
We’ve seen this kind of romantic comedy before. The pacing is very gradual, too. But Rust and Jacobs are each thoroughly endearing in very different ways. ... Another plus: Rust and Jacobs are surrounded by good supporting characters, including Mickey’s lovable and endlessly cheerful roommate, played by Claudia O’Doherty.
Just when you’re ready to break up with Love, it starts to works its magic on you, thanks to the charms of its cast and a suite of directors (Dean Holland, Joe Swanberg, Lynn Shelton, Maggie Carey, John Slattery) who have a knack for shining a light on the darker, comedic corners of human intimacy.
