Modern Love

A real gem I stumbled across the other night on Prime Video — Modern Love is a collection of real stories from the column of the same name in the New York Times, which is what piqued my interest.

Vinnie and I finished Season 1 over just a few nights, and I can validate that the 8‑something rating it currently has on IMDb is not hype. The episodes depict love in its various forms — romantic, parental, platonic and filial.

I loved all the episodes, although Ep 2 (“When Cupid Is a Prying Journalist”) — I should really watch more stuff starring Dev Patel — and Ep 1 (“When the Doorman Is Your Main Man”) were outstanding. Ep 8 tied everything together nicely in the end and had us both anxiously waiting for Season 2.
