Bingeworthy‘s Touré has no love for Love.
The host said he “couldn’t get away from this fast enough” during his discussion of the second season of Judd Apatow’s Netflix series, which continues to center on the questionable relationship between alcohol, sex, and drug addict Mickey Dobbs (Gillian Jacobs) and the, as co-host Jessica Shaw puts it, “kinda dorky” and “not so traditionally attractive” Apatow male prototype, Gus Cruikshank (Paul Rust).
Touré takes issue with the show neglecting to probe deeper into the experiences of Mickey and her journey to and through recovery, saying that there are “lots of things you can do with that character, very few of them they actually do.” He was also sure to bemoan the pop-culture-laden “formless conversation that just goes on and on and on” in Apatow’s shows and movies. “I can’t — it’s just not interesting,” he says.
Shaw, on the other hand, couldn’t help but pick up on the self-impressed tone of the actors as they recited their lines, which only turned her off from the show further.
To say that both Shaw and Touré are fed up with Apatow’s predictable trajectory, in which a stereotypically mismatched couple somehow ends up together, is putting it lightly. Shaw was also quick to challenge the gender discrepancy in his plot lines, asking how common it would be to see a woman, in Gus’ place, “always [getting] the super hot guy.”
