Judd Apatow's new sitcom 'Love' is now available on Netflix, and it's received mostly positive reviews so far.

Deadline called it a "deep, fresh and funny dive into the pitfalls, anxiety and occasional payoffs of post-modern romance". RadioTimes, meanwhile, was a little cooler, with reviewer Ellie Walker-Arnott writing: "'Love' and I are not yet smitten.

"This comedy doesn't feel as polished and it's a little light on comedy," she goes on. "In fact, I was left feeling slightly anxious."

But then 'Love' has big shoes to fill. Apatow's previous work includes 'Girls', 'Trainwreck', 'Anchorman 2', 'This is 40', 'Begin Again' and 'Bridesmaids'.

'Love' focusses on Gus (played by Paul Rust, who also co-wrote the series) and and Mickey (Gillian Jacobs). Gus is a repressed, hostile nerd while Mickey is a self-sabotaging radio producer with an infantile ex. They've both been scarred by love before. But can two disillusioned people end up loving each other? You'll have to watch to find out.

Netflix has already commissioned a second series, so things might not all be neatly tied up by the end of season one.
