Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

It's difficult to create a smart, irreverent comedy full of potentially laugh-out-loud moments from something that most people are uncomfortable with (if not ashamed of) talking about. But if you can get past the awkwardness, Lovesick is a clever adult-oriented series that examines a range of social situations in a way that is fresh and original. Thanks to good writing, genuinely likable characters, and well-orchestrated flashbacks, the stories unfold in ways that are often unexpected and infectiously entertaining.

The show's creative concept allows the past and present to collide in ways that allow for brief moments of heartfelt self-examination. These bits add some depth to the narratives in ways that are honest rather than judgmental. However, not everyone will catch this, and others will simply be put off by the show's premise. But, despite the show's immodest approach, some endearingly funny moments are surprisingly contagious.
