Love Follows (Television Thoughts: Modern Love, S01 E 04-08)

Even if I wrote that the first half was uneven,  I loved Episode 2 so much it gave me enough goodwill and hope that I will get something similar in the next for episodes. I liked the fourth episode, starring John Gallagher Jr and Sofia Boutella who go on a date, and ending up at the hospital after – the details are too juicy to spoil, and the plot, though a bit improbable, was effective in conveying the message. And the next episode, where a young girl has a relationship with a man old enough to be her father had some unexpected twists. The ‘gay episode’ int he series centers around a couple who wants to have a child, and it’s cute, but not really that relatable to me. The last one, about a couple finding love in late life, could have been better, though. But the best thing about the last episode for me, are the additional scenes about all the episodes. We get some code of coda about the characters in my beloved second episode, and that was so good for my catharsis. All in all, my view of the series became more positive after watching the second batch of episodes, and I haven;t checked, but it would be great to get a second season.
