Quote from Love (2016-).

Judd Apatow’s new offering is a wonderful addition to his delightfully profane slew of sad-happy comedies. ‘Love’ has been criticized by some of its Netflix viewers as a carrier of sagging plot with no real depth, but I think the problem lies somewhere else. These two people are principally wrong for another; this is a show where you root for the protagonists to never get together. I find its subsequently monotonous narration as a mark of maturity in Apatow’s oeuvre: he has found the humor in the fantastic normality of these characters’ lives rather than their words.

It is toxic, deeply flawed, extremely funny and sublime in little ways. Coming from this guy, the least it deserves is a benefit of doubt.
