LOVE IS IN THE AIR
The latest comedy from Judd Apatow leads the way amongst a
plethora of new Netflix shows.
As if to compensate for the fact that we’re not getting our hands on House Of Cards Season 5 until May, Netflix have stuffed their service with new shows this month.
Judd Apatow’s Love Season 2 debuts on March 10, once again offering us its comic, downto-earth look at dating in the modern world. Moving away from the bromantic comedy genre that earned him recognition in films like Anchorman and 40-Year
Virgin, Apatow’s newest show has all the complex realism and honesty of his earlier TV classic, Freaks And Geeks.
Top Gear, bruised but not broken, returns to BBC2 on March 5 following a stop-start first season with Chris Evans at the helm. The ginger one has thankfully left with Matt LeBlanc taking over as lead, and Chris Harris and Rory Reid once again providing auxiliary support. Despite the fact that the public has stayed loyal to Clarkson,
May and Hammond - the trio’s new show The Grand Tour was an unmitigated success over on Amazon Prime - we’re not ready to sound the death knell on Top
Gear just yet.
Elsewhere, the trailer for Netflix original Dear White People has been released and proved to be every bit as divisive as the title suggests. #BoycottNetflix has been trending on Twitter and subscriptions have reportedly been cancelled. Is it worth all the controversy? We’ll find out on when it airs on April 28.
