Review of the Netflix comedy tv show – Love.

As some of my readers may know, i have had Netflix account for few years now, so i eventually watch and review every good show on it. This time, i stumbled upon show called love – and wait for it – it’s about two people and just, you know, love. It had great imdb ratings and more importantly, was made by Judd Apatow, same guy responsible for undeclared and freaks and geeks, two of my favorite tv shows ever. It also had good cast – i’d been familiar with Gillian Jacobs, so i had no reason to not watch it. I saved first two episodes on my Kindle straight away and watched it while waiting for my plane later that day. I must say, pilot was good but slightly off, but it was the second episode that really won me over. The show’s really well directed and written, so props to all the writers and of course, Judd.

 I binge-watched season one that same day, and couldn’t wait until the next season. It came back better than before. Unlike other hit shows, which lose their fine touch and quality of writing after one great season, love did the opposite – got even better and funnier. Storyline is really unpredictable and funny. I don’t want to give anything away, so i can’t discuss it in details, but i highly recommend it. The title had me nervous for a while, but it’s not cheesy and predictable like other shows on the same topic. Netflix really knocked it out of the park with this one.

Characters are also diverse,  i feel like i know these people personally and can make paralells to real persons i know. But at the same time, they’re not boring and full of surprises. One of my favorite things about the show is the supporting character Bernie, who is main character’s girl roommate. I don’t know what the real name of the actress is, but she is soo funny and cute.

 Overall, it’s really fun to watch these two people get through their lives, knowing that eventually they’ll come together. Although the show is so original that you can’t be sure of that. Anything is possible.

Ironically, there is also fictional TV-show going on in the series, and you can have inside look at the writers and how shows are developed. If you are into that kind of stuff like i am, it can be really nice easter egg. Paul Rust’s character works for the TV company which develops the show, as a tutor for young actress. Who, by the way, is played by Judd’s real-life daughter and is really cute.
