Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Eternally Confused and Eager for Love showcases the challenges 20-somethings face in the modern dating scene. Though funny, relatable, and easy to binge, this raunchy sitcom is not for kids. The language is explicit, with cursing and sexual references. The young adults are often drinking alcohol at bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. In addition to being eternally confused and eager for love, the main character, Ray (Vihaan Samat), is self-loathing to a point that makes viewers feel sorry for him but also want to shake some sense into him. Mature audiences will have fun with this unique and hilarious show.
Is It Any Good?
The laughs come all too easily in this realistic depiction of the modern dating scene. Eternally Confused and Eager for Love gives viewers a glimpse at one aspect of modern-day Indian culture through a universal concept. Though Ray's experience may be a bit exaggerated, many viewers will be able to relate to some aspect of his 20-something lifestyle -- from work to friend groups to the desire to find love -- and the frustration that surrounds them all as one endures a quarter-life crisis.
As frustrating as his character sometimes is, viewers will cheer Ray on, laughing all the way, and hoping that his moment of redemption occurs by the end of the eight episodes of season one. Ray's inner voice/alter ego -- personified as Wiz -- is a hilarious villain, but his tirades can be overdone at times when it would be more appropriate to get Ray's take on the situation. Nevertheless, Eternally Confused and Eager for Love is a refreshing and unique addition to the Netflix lineup that will have viewers eager for more.
