Audience Reviews for Love Life: Season 1

  • Sep 14, 2022
    Only 65%? I don't get it. It was brilliant. Super well made.
  • Mar 01, 2022
    The this show is very human. It doesn't force a pretty picture on relationships and dating in the modern age. The lead is different in ever relationship she's in, good or bad. Worth a watch for sure, just don't expect a traditional fairytale story arc.
  • Dec 31, 2021
    I don't understand how a "flagship" show from HBO with a A-List star can have such comically bad writing. The first episode of this season was interesting, but beyond that it's a trainwreck. The characters are not remotely believable, their personalities/decisions completely reverse with zero build-up (think Game of Thrones Season 8), and the dialogue is laughable. Which is unfortunate, because the concept is interesting, it's shot well, Anna Kendrick does her innocent giggly thing, and the soundtrack fits. But it feels like it's written by a 12-year old who has never actually lived in NYC or ever dated anyone.
  • Oct 30, 2021
    Has its own humor, I like it.
  • Oct 30, 2021
    Not bad, quite entertaining.
  • Oct 28, 2021
    Kinda funny, when you look at score details. Top critics only rate it a 55, not fresh. I'm going to check out season 2, I imagine I will like it less, we'll see. Predictable, annoying in its worldview, Kendrick makes it watchable. Why does it have to rely on stereotypes ? I imagine the new season will amplify the worst aspects.
  • Sep 20, 2021
    Loved this concept, I binged watched in 2 days. Anna Kendrick made the character of Darby feel real and relatable. Great supporting cast as well, especially Zoe Chao taking us through Sara's spiraling life.
  • May 21, 2021
    I will watch almost anything with Anna Kendrick in it, but this was an abomination. It's just one bad scene after another as she tries to carry a bad cast and worse writing. It's also telling that one of the critics who liked the show said it was a pretty enjoyable 8 episodes when it's a 10 episode season.
  • Apr 24, 2021
    it was great seeing Anna Kendrick shine in this role. I thought the show handled the various storylines very well.
  • Mar 14, 2021
    So great! So relatable and well written! Don't understand the critics reviews!
