MCN Review: Netflix's 'Love'

Netflix takes a shot at romantic comedy with its new series Love.

The Judd Apatow-produced series follows the unlikely pairing of nice but nerdy Gus (Paul Rust) and the rough-around-the-edges but likable Mickey (Gillian Jacobs).

After each endures a crushing breakup, the two eventually meet and form a unique friendship that looks to blossom over time: Every stage of the relationship from the often awkward, but humorous getting-to-know-you phase and beyond is charted throughout the 10-episode run.

Viewers will have to decide for themselves whether they want to hang in with the evolution of the relationship between the clingy and overly nice Gus and the rough-edged but somewhat insecure Mickey.

Love doesn’t pull any punches in its examination of the ins and outs of a modern relationship, which should play well with Netflix’s younger, binge-viewing subscribers.

Love is created, written and executive produced by Apatow, Paul Rust and Lesley Arfin.
