At the close of Netflix comedy “Love” Season 1, Gillian Jacobs' character Mickey tells her sorta boyfriend Gus (co-creator Paul Rust) that she’s a sex and love addict. He responds by kissing her. Welcome to Gus and Mickey’s messy, fumbling romance.
The pair, although sweet on each other, already saw personality clashes: Mickey, volatile and self-destructive; Gus, repressed and controlling. Season 2, out Friday, ups the ante, exploring the complexity of dating when one partner has a sex and love addiction — and the other might have codependency issues.
Spoiler: it won’t go easy. (The Season 2 trailer shows Mickey confessing to her roommate, “I told Gus I didn’t want to date for a year, and then we had sex in my car. Is that bad?”)
