Modern Love 2019 / The Dose of Romance You Need

8.5

This is one of those reviews where it’s probably enough to say: watch the pilot. There is no better proof of how good Modern Love is than its first episode.

The show is based on true stories that were shared in The New York Times column by the same name. That first episode is about the relationship between a doorman and a New Yorker. But, plot twist, Modern Love isn’t just about romantic relationships. It’s also about friendships, family links, and all displays of love and affection.

The second episode is with Dev Patel and Catherine Keener, which I found to be also excellent. There are other ones with Tina Fey, Anne Hathaway, and many other big names, but the first two episodes are still my favorites.

The power of Modern Love is in the riveting true stories it tells. It might as well have been called “you can’t make this stuff up.”

Mediocre. Cheap rom-com material, where love always saves the day and the characters’ lives… boring. Only the episode with Anne Hathaway is original and moving.
