LOVE S2 (2017)
Captures the first few months of a relationship of co-dependents agonizingly well. A comedy without being a sitcom in the least, moments of humor are all the brighter for their unpredictability. Bertie, another perennial Comedy Bang Bang hero, is one of my favorite characters on this thing I guess we still call television. Steph and I probably watched it more like a triptych, and I do think it shares some spirituality with Linklater's Before trilogy. It is strange that what we really crave from a romantic comedy is this, the tissue, the actual relationship, but most modern rom-coms are de facto action movies.
Carry Bertie in your heart.
