      Nicole Abadee The Age (Australia) 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. Jan 17, 2020 Full Review Linda Holmes NPR 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. Dec 4, 2019 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times 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. Dec 4, 2019 Full Review Swetha Ramakrishnan Firstpost For every episode that gives you good ol' lurrve on a platter — there's an episode that explores the breakdown of a relationship and the complexity of ordinary life. Oct 9, 2023 Full Review Alex Flood NME (New Musical Express) For the most part though, Modern Love is an uplifting experience with more than enough 'aww' moments to keep you ploughing on through all eight episodes...

      Rogelho S Em um mundo tão misantropo, falar de amor, narrando histórias que, em sua grande maioria, inspiram e acendem uma fagulha de esperança em uma era tão líquida, é admirável. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review John L I wish all the professional reviewers who panned this series (thankfully a self- infatuated minorirty) could just drop their cynicism and consider the intentions of this series, not the brilliance of it's exposition. It never pretends to be anything but stories of how love manifests itself in all its messiness and irregularities. Maybe a little humanity on their part rather than posturing would help them to see what audiences saw..... a lovely collection of human moments all culled from real life experiences which can touch us all. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/04/23 Full Review Audrey N Every episode feels like a different book or movie but they have one thing in common: love. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/03/23 Full Review ciri_ r The episode with Dev Patel is absolutely the best one. He's such a great actor and the story is amazing. I really enjoyed the plot and the characters. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/28/23 Full Review D P I'm 3 episodes in and it just keeps getting better. Season 1 episode 3 was about mental health and coping with it. It was so beautifully shot and told. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/15/23 Full Review Janet M I absolutely loved this whole series. The acting, stories, sets, scenes of New York, music etc. is all amazing and feels very real. What a fabulous cast they've assembled for these short, heart warming stories. It was even better the second time around! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
