And there's the awkwardness. Marty Dobbs!

Re: Love (Netflix) -- S: Gillian Jacobs, Paul Rust, C: Apatow, Rust

I finished season 2 yesterday. I liked it, but I have some problems with it. I like the supporting characters (Bertie and Arya) better than the two leads and I don't think Mickey and Gus should be together. Mickey is very, very selfish and caused trouble for Gus both times he was getting a chance to work more as a writer. If I was dating someone that helped torpedo my writing career, I would be completely done with them. Mickey really needs to take time away from dating, because she is very self-destructive. Also, are most people on tv and movie sets as big of jerks as this show portrays them to be?

Re: Love (Netflix) -- S: Gillian Jacobs, Paul Rust, C: Apatow, Rust

I thought S2 as ok. But as was mentioned, it could've been trimmed down.. probably 8 or 9 episodes max... it really didn't need 12 episodes.

Apatow and Rust seem to have a Woody Allen complex in their writing by having women interested in the male lead where they realistically shouldn't. Between the relationship with Mickey and with the actress, and the Wichita show-runner wanting to sleep with him, and the chick at the bar flirting with him - there's just way too much interest in Gus. He's geeky looking with a big schnoz and his personality is annoying. He's not a bad guy, but he's too awkward and people-pleasing and has no balls. There's really no reason for him to be boxing above his weight-class.

While I say that, I don't know why Gus puts up with Mickey's shit. As mentioned she's selfish, always defensive and her moods change at the drop of a hat.

Basically the only person in this show who's not annoying is Bertie - although she seems to be a bit of a pushover as well.

Randy's such a slug and moocher. I would hate to hang around anyone that lazy and with so little motivation for anything.

Apatow's daughter (Arya) needs some acting lessons. She has the same tone regardless of what the character is saying.

It's weird that I still find the show interesting enough to watch even though I basically hate all the characters.

Re: Love (Netflix) -- S: Gillian Jacobs, Paul Rust, C: Apatow, Rust

Yea by the end of s2 I was so annoyed with Mickey's behavior it made me dislike the show or season at least a little. Which really left me bummed out at the end of the season , which I'm fairly sure isn't a good thing to leave people with.

And come on who doesn't have a crush on Bertie what a great character.

I didn't like the ending much. Overall it was a good season but not as good as the first.

I think that I'm 3 or 4 episodes in, but I had no real desire to go back and finish it. I've got a bunch of travel coming up for work soon, so I'll probably finish it in a hotel somewhere, but it's definitely not addictive TV.

Regarding your post, pre editing...

Spoiler:
I thought you said you were surprised that Gus went to NY.

Am I mis-remembering? Or maybe you said you were surprised that he 'would' go to NY?

I enjoyed this season. I find all of the characters to be fairly interesting.

It was strange, though, in that the last episode felt pretty open. I.e. it didn't feel like a season finale.

I can't remember, but was this show already given the go ahead for another season?

I'm really surprised that Gus and Mickey are both actually in their mid 30s. I thought they were in their 20s.

All I said was I was distracted by them trying to pass off Universal for Atlanta when Gus went there to film. It isn't a "spoiler."

Okay, then I did misunderstand. I could've sworn your original post referred to NYC.

I didn't remember your saying anything about passing off Universal for Atlanta, originally.

Have you never known (or been!) a guy dating a chick considerably above their league? As a solid 6, when I managed to date an 8 for a couple months, I can't believe some of the stupid shit I put up with.

As the great poet F. Durst said, "I did it all for the nookie, so you can take that cookie, and shove it up your YEAH!"

6 episodes into Season 1, and I really like it. I get how some characters are either unlikable or simply annoying, but I'm always engaged and want to see more.
