News & Interviews for Modern Love: Season 1
Modern Love really feels like it would have benefited from less tidiness, less ponderousness - maybe even, dare I say, a little less New York Times-iness.
Modern Love had the chance to build upon the Times' original essays, but to its detriment, the show adapted them as faithfully as possible, yielding mostly dull interpretations.
There is plenty of earnestness afoot, even when it's lurking just under the surface, and there are a few happy endings, too.
Modern Love could be about more than love. At its best moments, and in its best episodes, it is about more than that, but it's almost as if those moments escape from a show determined to keep them hidden away.
Despite its varying trials and travails, Modern Love strives for an overall feel-good vibe that isn't always entirely earned.
Modern Love isn't bad, but it doesn't have many smart things to say about modernity or love. It's mostly trite and retrograde.
Modern Love is an anthology series that is unfortunately a mixed bag. It has episodes that show its true potential fulfilled, but there aren't enough of them to warrant a full recommendation.
With an ensemble that also includes Tina Fey, Andrew Scott, and Julia Garner, the show feels like something of a missed opportunity.
The first three and last two episodes of Modern Love make for passable fluffy entertainment. The middle two are entirely skippable, and watch the dad episode at your own risk.
Audience Reviews for Modern Love: Season 1
Jan 24, 2021Every episode is so realistic and relatable 💯
Nov 20, 2020This is the first show I review on RT. I'm doing it because it touched me deeply, like no other show has. Each episode leaves you with a feeling of joy. It makes you feel like it's OK to be loved and to love other people. Its characters are real, flawed, and just normal. They give me hope that love is possible even though we're flawed, because love is accepting each other's flaws and imperfections. Can't recommend enough.
Oct 28, 2020Incredible. I'm a lover of rom coms and this does not disappoint. I'm not crying you're crying.
Aug 08, 2020Modern Love's star-studded cast has some inspired moments, but ultimately falls into far-fetched cringey situations full of tacky cliches.
Aug 06, 2020It was such a wonderful series - showing all kinds of love. All so real, so relatable. I only wish there were more. It is a must watch!
Aug 04, 2020Love the alternative point of view about love and the uniepisode format.
May 08, 2020Just finished binge watching the entire season of Modern Love. Ok, first it got me into a pensive mood and calmed me a bit from my own life's trials and tribulations. - Made me write a nice e-mail to my adult children expressing my love for them and to reinforce their decisions. - Made me understand Bipolar disease and generally gave me a better appreciation for mental illness. Could have been accomplished without all the La la Land dance numbers! - The last episode was the best. Old people's love was portrayed so beautifully.
Apr 10, 2020I usually don't like shows/films where each part is a separate storyline but this was an exception. It's one of those shows that makes you feel a kind of reinvigoration for love and life, even if it's just for the day. The episode I ESPECIALLY appreciated was the Anne Hathaway episode. It is very rare to see an honest portrayal of someone with severe mental illness, highlighting both sides of the up/down coin. I have complex-PTSD so while I couldn't identify with the manic episodes the character experienced, I could deeply identify with the lows and the self-imposing complete isolation; the not wanting colleagues, family and friends to know about your condition and see you at your absolute worst. While the "musical" aspect of the episode was definitely more of a caricature of the condition, it was still so honest and great to see. The only episode that really made me cringe was the one with the girl from the Ozarks, as it had such a weird twist. I get that it was trying to show all different forms of love but that one was really out there. All in all, definitely worth the watch!
Mar 21, 2020I watched the first part of more than one episode thinking that I wasn't going to like the rest of the episode and, with one exception (the one ending with "Wait!"), they all won me over. One seemed to be a better version of my life, while others showed me perspectives from people living very different lives than mine. And yet all touched on various recognizable human feelings that we all experience. It was an imperfect but fascinating journey- like Life.
Mar 17, 2020Very thoughtful and entertaining show. I appreciate how they show other non traditional relationships and bring them to light.
