netflix original love

OKAY let’s talk about this netflix original. I started watching it a few weeks back & I’ve already watched it through twice. This one’s from Judd Apatow & it’s clumsy, imperfect, raw & pretty damn funny. We’re talking about the netflix original love, brought to you by the clever brain behind titles such as knocked up, the 40 year old virgin & so MUCH more. A very low-spoiler (to no-spoiler) review of the netflix original love, a down-to-earth story about, well, love.

my thoughts on love:

DATES: 2016-2018


EPISODES: 34 each like 25-40 min. long

Gillian Jacobs plays a girl named mickey, lovable, quirky & has quite the addictive personality. Paul Rust (from I Love You, Beth Cooper – an all-time classic, according to my dad) plays gus, the nerdy, nice-guy with problems of his own. The characters are amazing; crazy & relatable and the acting is really good. I especially love Claudia O’Doherty who plays bertie, the funny nice girl from Australia who moves in with mickey. Just overall great casting!

Recently-single boy meets recently-single girl and you know, yada yada. But this isn’t your typical fairytale romance where every little thing is perfect. The characters are flawed & you kinda even h8 them a little at times. It’s a different look at love, a messy kind of love. It’s interesting to see the challenges they face, especially when it comes to mickey’s issues with addiction. She’s something of a wild child & he’s a people-pleaser, but sometimes the whole ‘opposites attract’ thing rings true. Give this a watch if you want to see two impulsive, flawed weirdos try to figure out what love is all about.


COMMENT BELOW & let me know what you’ve been watching lately, or which Netflix Original I should watch next!

  1. I have been a fan of LOVE on Netflix ever since it started. I just loved LOVE, lol. It’s a nearly perfect quirky show that had so much charm to it. Super bummed to see it end, but I absolutely thought it ended just perfectly. Glad to see another fan of this gem!

    P.S. If you like LOVE, you should check out You’re the Worst. They are somewhat similar shows. And more than likely if you like LOVE you’ll probably like that show as well. It’s another favorite of mine.


      1. Thanks! I am somewhat of a huge TV Nerd, lol. Totally agree with LOVE ending when it was still in a great place. Hope you like You’re the Worst as much as I do! The next season is the last. It seems like every great show is ending this year. TV Nerd problems, lol.

        Great site, by the way!
