Watch Love

Love is a different type of romantic comedy with modern day issues plaguing severely flawed but very likable characters portrayed by Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust. Jacobs plays Mickey Dobbs, a devoted 12 stepper who jumps from one bad relationship to another while sinking deeper into her own personal rut. Things seem hopeless until she meets Gus Cruikshank, a nerdy tutor to young TV stars who dreams of climbing the ladder in Hollywood. Gus is played by Rust who is also the co-writer and co-creator of the show.

The series dissects the very first meeting of Mickey and Gus and follows them through their rocky courtship full of mishaps such as an awkward sexual encounter, bad first date, and mild fender bender. The couple, like most real people not always portrayed in romantic comedies, have issues and make mistakes and these events really bring a lifelike and somewhat dramatic tone into the comedy series that also includes some big laughs.

Co-creater Judd Apatow's fingerprints are all over Love. The writing is sharp and smart and is masterfully delivered by the show's stars and the excellent supporting cast that includes great turns from Claudia O'Doherty, Brett Gelman, Bobby Lee and even Andy Dick.
