HBOMax is proving itself to be a great name in streaming. Despite everyone’s initial annoyance that they were stealing Friends and South Park away from their long time homes, that sting has worn off and now it has an even more robust and reliable catalog of originals than it had pre-Max. We didn’t love Raised By Wolves, but otherwise it’s been strong. Because of that, Made for Love piqued our interest. Add to it Cristin Milioti and Billy Magnussen and you’re guaranteed success.
Made for Love is about the CEO of a Google-esque company (Magnussen) inventing chips which when implanted in a romantic couples’ brains, allows them to “connect fully”. Of course it doesn’t work yet. We soon find out he secretly installed it in his wife (Milioti). It is a comedy so hilarity ensues. As Kristin put it, it’s light on jokes but big on humor. So far it just let’s things be funny without overdoing it. Tonally, it’s really nailing it.
Are you guys watching Made for Love? What do you think so far? Let us know over on Twitter or in the Youtube comments! We warmed to it slowly over the three episodes but now we’re completely in. For now though, have some spaghetti, get yeasty, and settle in for today’s fingerless episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
