"Obnoxious and Unlikeable People Who Aren't the Least bit Funny"
"30 year olds who act like 18 year olds."
this hit the spot right.
I liked the Show, but... Damn its just so weird to see a dork like Gus get so much P**** all the time. It just seems to unrealistic...
It's a weak show, but it gets better towards the second half. Another one in a recent trend of "comedies" that follow utterly unlikeable people that the audience is supposed to identify with through cringe-y situations. Saved by Gillian Jacobs' performance, primarily. It occasionally strikes gold for a few moments, but prepare to be bored for big chunks.
Started off a bit strange and I started to like it by the second episode. Then there was a sudden shift in Mickey and Gus' characters a couple episodes in and, gradually, they both became irredeemably unlikable -- and, contrary to rave reviews, not in a "modern" or "realistic" way at all. They just began making decisions and behaving in a way totally divorced from real life 30-year-olds. Eventually, nothing in the series was about love; they didn't fall in love so much as stumble into situations where slowly tolerated each other less and less. By the final scene, the story was an exercise in directionless self-destruction, and no one in real life would be attracted to either character.
I hate to compare, but this show simply says nothing about "modern dating" that Master of None doesn't say with more nuance and charm.
The story of two broken people that wanna be loved.
Love is just the worst title for a TV-Series, but overall it was solid with a few subtle laugher. And I totally love Gus' Personality.
