[An] exquisite series. [Full review in Spanish]

I found myself cheering each set of lovers on, hoping they could work it out. Watching it with my husband I felt a warm buzz of happiness at the end of each episode -- and there aren't many shows you can say that about.

A stellar cast of actors and well-known writers work hard, but only a couple of the episodes are exceptional. Still, at 31 minutes long, it can be a nice break from the world's insanity.

The series is worthy because of the exercise of transferring the real stories of the readers from the paper to the screen, giving life to those stories in fiction. [Full review in Spanish]

What saves it from being overly saccharine is that the stories are real, and not every one wraps up tidily.

Modern Love, the short story series, is successful not because it operates with the same tools of a rom-com-but because these are real romances told by real people.

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.

It was a brilliant move to adapt those slice of life dramas from the Times. Now, it's just a matter of time before aspiring writers use the column as their conduit to Hollywood.

It's a pro job, though at times it feels professional in a Madison Avenue kind of way, as if you are being sold something, rather than told a story.

The show is uneven but well worth a look.

Real life-based romance series both charms and annoys.

There is plenty of earnestness afoot, even when it's lurking just under the surface, and there are a few happy endings, too.

Smart and moving.

Mostly, Modern Love treads that fine line between sweet but not sickly, funny but with depth.

John Carney... constructed a mosaic of eight episodes with diverse, entertaining, and emotional stories. [Full Review in Spanish]

Modern Love is perfect for viewers who love the idea of love, love...Modern Lovehits all of the beats of romance and especially romantic comedies, even the bad ones, and explores the many experiences of love.

...while I can't help but think many of these stories could be more "modern," what's most significant is that Modern Love isn't always focused on romantic love.

Tthere is something to like in these eight stories of love, and if you're in a sentimental or whimsical mood, then this could satisfy.

A steady rain falls in each vignette - but in keeping with the romanticized vision of Modern Love, it's a Hollywood-style rain, the kind of rain that makes everyone and everything look better.

You'd groan if that particular fantasy weren't so potent. There's no question that Modern Love is often ridiculous; love is like that.
