Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here’s the trailer for Season 2 of “Love,” an ironically unromantic show, given its name.
The Netflix comedy from Judd Apatow centers around a dysfunctional young couple (ish) in L.A. Mickey, (Gillian Jacobs, “Community”) is conventionally attractive and volatile; Gus (Paul Rust, also the show’s co-creator) is conventionally dorky and gratingly insecure. They have more bad times than good, yet, they’re somehow still drawn to each other. Maybe because they both hate themselves?
It’s one of those shows you keep watching even though you kind of hate the characters. For example, we are excited to stream Season 2 when it drops on March 10! Mickey’s awkward, yet bubbly roommate (Australian actress Claudia O’Doherty, “Trainwreck”) provides comic relief.
From the looks of the trailer, Mickey and Gus’s road to love doesn’t get any smoother. Have a look yourself; at the very least, it will help you temper your romantic expectations for whatever you have planned tonight.
