Have now watched the whole series and it didn’t disappoint!!!! The first 2 episodes are the best Episode 4 just didn’t do it for me But the series was brilliant and I hope we get more to follow...... Oh and make sure you do watch all of 1-7 and then sit back and glow in brilliance of episode 8

Modern Romance is a group of 30 minute shows that could be considered 'Chick Flicks" if they'd been dragged out to the customary 90 minutes. At 30 minutes they are perfect for telling their stories. Each story is different, some are better than others, but overall it's a very enjoyable TV series. Well written and well-acted throughout. Ep 1 - Very good, Ep 2 - Very good Ep 3 - OK Ep 4 - Meh Ep 5 - Very good Ep 6 - Very good Ep 7 - Meh Ep 8 - Meh for the first part, excellent in the second part where all 8 episodes verge into a big finale Entire season as a whole - solid 8.5/10

Modern Love (2019) Season One Modern Love is a co-production of Amazon Studios and the New York Times, an anthology series which explores love in all of its beautiful and complicated forms, as well as its effects on the human connection. Each episode depicts a different story inspired by the newspapers popular 'Modern Love' column. The series has an incredible cast, with stars including Anne Hathaway, Andy Garcia, Tina Fey, Dev Patel and John Slattery. This was such a good anthology series, with eight, 30ish minute long episodes, it made for a very easy binge watch. All of the episodes and stories were crafted so well and really gave the audience reasons to connect with the different characters and see what love meant to each of them in their own unique situations. As with the majority of shows, there's the odd episode that doesn't quite stand up to the rest, but realistically none of these episodes were inherently bad, there was such good continuity through this anthology which allows for the audience to see how everyone's stories pan out in the same period of time throughout New York City, which comes to light in the final episode. I don't want this review to last for too long so i'll just log a few words about each episode and my thoughts. [spoiler] -Episode One isn't typically what you'd expect when you say love, but it's really wholesome and heartwarming. 8/10 -Episode Two is an incredibly heartwarming break up and reunion episode. 8/10 -Episode Three is a mental health related episode and how mental health effects relationships with others. 8/10 -Episode Four is 30 minutes of Tina Fey and John Slattery playing tennis. 7/10 -Episode Five is quite nice really, quite wholesome. 8/10 -Episode Six is the lowest rated episode on trakt, and I'm in total agreement, it's pretty much an episode about daddy issues. 6/10 -Episode Seven is probably my favourite, and it manages to hold so much emotion and character development. 8/10 -And last but not least, Episode Eight is incredibly sad but also really inspiring at the same time, throwing out the message that it's never too late in life to find love. [/spoiler] Overall, I absolutely loved this series and I can't wait for the second season now that it's officially been renewed. I need more ASAP. I'd really recommend it, one of the best Amazon Originals that I've seen in a while.

_Modern Love_ is about middle class hipsters falling in love in quirky ways.This show will suit you if you wish to watch a romantic movie, starting and ending within half an hour, without describing the characters or getting to know them. Each episode is a very brief replication of what has happened in another romantic movie. Each story is as cliche and predictable as it gets. Maybe I'm just jaded and am easily bored with watching peoples' self-examination and narcissism but I could barely get through the first two episodes. First episode they have the most confusing stereotype of a middle aged Albanian man I have seen. In the second episode, Dev Patel not caring about his job interview because he met a girl is such a ridiculous trope. I just don't find these stories compelling.

Amazingly put together. I Can't wait for season 2

I came across this series while I began binge-watching -almost everything- at Prime video because my membership is about to expire. And then I wished I have seen this earlier! it was very warming like you're drinking a nice sweet cup of tea after a very exhausting day. it shows you love in all of its forms and shapes and whether you agree with those or not doesn't matter because love doesn't have one simple, clear definition. Every episode shows something different than the one before it, but they all agree on one thing that with love you can do anything! I know that might sound like a cliche, and maybe my description of this series will throw you off. but believe me it worth your time and I guarantee that you will find something in it that you will like and feel attached to. For me, the first three episodes are the best! I liked the fourth and the fifth but they were slightly boring. The seventh one was good too better than the previous three. The last episode was nice, not necessary but it was nice to see all of them again. overall, it was a very good show! Give it a shot, it will be worth it.

We liked this one a lot. It's crying porn and schmaltzy at times but overall charming. Reminds me of a shorter version of The Romanoffs.

interesting but forgettable like most amazon shows..

I'm a sucker for relationship-centric tv shows. Kind of like **Easy** on Netflix, another show I've really liked. The cast here is stellar. Anne Hathaway's episode is particularly well-written and played, obviously, and reminded me of a short and more serious version of **Crazy Ex Girlfriend**. So, the subject isn't really that original but the writing and casting really make it quality tv in my opinion. It kinda restores your faith in love and humanity without falling into an overly corny tone.
