This may not end up being in the conversation at all, but since we know nothing about its quality for now, that means that it is still possible as a contender for the comedy series win. Shake it up, Love! We need something more interesting than a Veep/Silicon Valley showdown, which could easily be cut short if the latter fails to get an actor in again.January 6, 2016 at 1:03 pm #366604

I mean I do and I don’t want it be a factor. The issue is that I’m pretty sure Kimmy is safe for a second nod unless there’s a major shake up in the race and I’m really rooting for master of none to make a big impact despite its slight underperformance in end of the year charts/nominations etc. so if love comes in I’m worried it might push out master of none which already seems on the bubble. We shall see …
Edit: my point got somewhat lost in there which is that I’m not sure Netflix can get three series inJanuary 7, 2016 at 12:31 pm #366605
It’ll be really hard to judge Love’s chances until we see it. It could be a gamechanger like Master of None was, but I’m not entirely sure.February 8, 2016 at 6:17 pm #366606
First review at Metacritic is a 60 from Variety.
Done!February 8, 2016 at 7:55 pm #366607
Well thats from Brian Lowry, and he always seems to hate everything
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.February 20, 2016 at 5:10 am #366608
I’ve seen the first two episodes so far. I am falling in love with LOVE.
The first episode is great at doing its job of setting up the two main characters separately from one another. The second excels with the two bought together. Paul Rust is good as Gus, but for me it is all about Gillian Jacobs as Mickey so far stealing the show. The writing is great, and hasn’t misfired yet.
Very much refraining from watching more at the moment, just so I can savour the show for longer than a weekend!February 20, 2016 at 1:17 pm #366609
Once Oscar season is over, this will be the first show I check out.February 20, 2016 at 9:47 pm #366610
I binged the whole thing. It’s solid. Not as good as You’re The Worst but I liked it as much, if not more than Master of None. Gillian Jacobs is great in this and would be a worthy nominee. She’d even have a few competitive episodes.February 21, 2016 at 5:11 pm #366611
up to episode four, but I’m giving up, this is too fucking depressing for me, it is a fantastic show I admit it, but no can’t do.February 21, 2016 at 5:14 pm #366612

So is this the first show in the history of TV that goes by the name “Love”? Wow. You guys attracted my attention. Will check this one out in the first chance I get.February 22, 2016 at 12:49 pm #366614
Wasn’t impressed by the pilot, but liked the 2nd episode a whole lot more! Curious about the rest of the season.February 22, 2016 at 6:31 pm #366615
Gillian Jacobs gives a performance so good that it makes Aya Cash’s season two arc on You’re the Worst look like there’s room for improvement. If there was any justice in the universe, Jacobs would be the Emmy frontrunner at this point. She’s that good.
The rest of the show is dynamite.February 22, 2016 at 7:58 pm #366616
Birdie and Apatows daughter were my favorite parts of the show. I also really like Gus’ friend and I can’t seem to find the actor or remember the characters name at all. He plays the guy who gives Gus all the advice about women at the studio. He’s hilarious and compelling.
