Critic Consensus: Love Life's first season breezes by on Anna Kendrick's charms, but those looking for a real connection may find its featherweight familiarness frustrating.

News & Interviews for Love Life: Season 1
The performances from Kendrick and Chao (and a mega-charming Jin Ha as practically the only decent dude in Darby's life) make it a pretty pleasant eight episodes to watch.
Though Kendrick delivers a solid performance, it's muted by how bland her character can be.
Even Kendrick's considerable talent and skill can't make up for the show's overall flimsiness.
Early shows aren't necessarily signature shows - no one thinks of HBO as the network of "Arli$$." But with "Love Life," HBO Max is making not so much of a splash as a ripple.
Kendrick's talents as a fierce, often biting, performer - who can channel powerful emotions into specific gestures and phrases - are wasted on Darby, who's painted purely in broad strokes.
