Made for Love

Critics Consensus

Made for Love's satirical riffs on technology are undeniably clever, but the most valuable special effects in this twisty odyssey are Cristin Milioti's charisma and comedic timing.

Critic Reviews for Made for Love Season 1

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (26)

These scenarios are fascinating, but they rarely have any meaningful connection with or insight into real life and real love. Made for Love, at least, does.

Apr 22, 2021 | Full Review…

It wasn't just Milioti's charm that kept me watching the eight episodes of the first season. Ray Romano, as Hazel's father, Herbert, adds yet another performance to his growing list of remarkable post-"Everybody Loves Raymond" turns.

Apr 22, 2021 | Full Review…

After four episodes, Made for Love is more 'interesting' than 'entertaining,' and I kept wishing it was more of the latter given its premise and ensemble.

Apr 1, 2021 | Full Review…

Milioti is skilled at this, too - she's the best thing about the show, which through the first four episodes is funny, dark and uneven.

Mar 31, 2021 | Full Review…

Herbert is the proof that "Made for Love" still knows the real deal: that true love can't be quantified, only felt. The more the show lets us feel it, the better off it will be.

Mar 17, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Made For Love lacks some of the subtleties of other dystopian stories, but a great cast and a wry, almost slapstick humour carries the story along to an unexpected and surprisingly touching conclusion.

Apr 22, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The incredible storyline is engaging, and the first episode brilliantly sets up future episodes of Made for Love.

Apr 20, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

A deliciously dark 10-part comedy headlined by a fabulous performance from Milioti.

Apr 15, 2021 | Full Review…

Milioti is terrific in her part but the story is repetitive, ham-handed and strained.

Apr 9, 2021 | Full Review…

The delightful Made for Love solves the pervasive "overwrought sci-fi puzzle box show" problem by being a comedy.

Apr 8, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Quirky, funny, scary, and relatable, the science fiction series takes on a lot. The performances and writing are top notch. Filled with powerful scenes.

Apr 8, 2021 | Full Review…

It is Cristin Milioti who makes the sci-fi comedy so enjoyable to watch as she takes on the challenge of conveying every single thought and emotion her character feels with the right amount of comedy or pain as needed.

    Not really that interesting. I like Christin Milioti. I like Ray Romano. But I never felt anything. There aren't any real laughs. Its not disturbing. Its not dark. Its maybe a bit slow. But the usual problems aren't there. It just didn't feel like much of anything.

    Se joaca bine dar se joaca pe mize mici

    A good concept. Could have been a real show had it not been just a crusade against men. Also, do these shows even have real scriptwriters anymore? Not one memorable dialogue in four episodes. Also, not funny. Don't know if it was supposed to be or not but it isn't.

    Ray Romano is an American treasure.

    Funny and very entertaining. The actors are great in this show!

    A modern take on the Persephone legend, or at least it seems. Kinda genius. I felt like Billy Magnussen and Ray Romano did some major heavy lifting with those acting chops.

    This has everything : Unique story, excellent writing and acting - can't wait for the next episodes!
  • Apr 16, 2021
    Great cast and CALEB FOOTE is one of the best and even under-utilised. And that says a lot with this cast -- cant wait to see him in more and hopefully szn 2!

    If you like black mirror you'll love this. It feels like a longer black mirror episode. Well written, directed and cast, I wasn't expecting much going in but was pleasantly surprised at how much I love this show
