This is a quirky love story set in an LA love landscape that looks bleak and cynical.20Love21
Netflix says,50LOVE follows Gus and Mickey as they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of #intimacy
What the official description of the show leaves out is that these characters have no moral center. There's a reason their #relationships have been dysfunctional. They don't care about other people! There may be more painful, awkward scenes in this series than average. That was my experience. It's a squirmy watch.
The hero is a self conscious guy with a schnozz to end all schnozzes. Only an actor could get work with a nose like this.
Plus, Gus may have a huge nose and be technically homely, which is Central Casting for Nice Guy, but that doesn't make him a good guy.
This strikes me as authentic. I've known guys like Gus. He's obsessed with how being perceived as a nice guy makes him lose, but he's not even that nice. He works in the film business where he's ignored and he's always trying to get over.
The woman character Mickey is cool, and damaged, and trying to recover from sex and drug excesses of the past. Can she connect for long enough to improve herself?
