It's a shame this seems to have flown under the radar compared to some Netflix shows, as "Love" is everything you've ever wanted a scripted romantic dramedy to be: as awkward and funny as it is painful and frequently cringe-inducing. Each of the characters feels wholly rendered and flawed. After three seasons, I walked away still not even sure if I was rooting for these two to stay together, but hey - that's love.
It's refreshing to see a romance with so much empathy for its character's mental illnesses, lending the romcom clichés actual substance, turning optimistic romance into bittersweet, but undeniable love, by the finale. It's also fucking hilarious. with one of the best ensemble TV comedy casts ever. Each episode feels like an atmospheric, sensorial memory of yesterday - like 24-hours-ago-nostalgia. Beautiful.
What I really appreciate about this show is all the time this story takes in stressing the tension outside of Gus and Mickey's relationship, which they in turn take back into their relationship. It seems like a small thing, but I've rarely seen it done this well in a series of this type. Both this and the comedy in general make for a great watch.
