Ep. 38 What About Modern Love?

Ep. 38 What About Modern Love?

On this week's episode of Kickin' & Streamin' Podcast, Graham & Jocelyn discuss Amazon original series Modern Love, a romantic comedy anthology based on the weekly column published by The New York Times. The series contains 8 episodes, each of which are different stories, of different people, portrayed by different cast of actors. Graham & Jocelyn start by discussing how skeptical they both were before watching the series since they did not know the show was based on real-life stories published on the New York Times, so it was easy to assume the series could have been an overpriced Hallmark Channel romantic sap stories. The two co-host talked about their surprise and relief at the fact that each episode told a story of love, but in different expression, representation and connotations. Jocelyn had high praises for Dev Patel's portrayal of Joshua on the first episode, and talked with Graham about some key moments where each actor shines. Graham marveled at the parade of very well known actors who performed on each episode, including Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, John Slattery, Cristin Milioti, Laurentiu Possa, Andrew Scott, Andy Garcia, Julia Garner, John Gallagher Jr. and Sofia Boutella, among others. On reviewing each episode and their respective casts (no spoilers!), Graham & Jocelyn had a big laugh about a cameo appearance by Ed Sheeran; which didn't seem to contribute anything to the plot of the story, much like his prior cameo appearance on Game of Thrones. Jocelyn & Graham talked at length about Anne Hathaway's magnificent performance on episode 2, as she portrayed a the story of a woman battling bipolar disorder.
