“Love Fraud” is a fantastic series built for anyone who has survived the last three years on social media. Where public and private persona start to meld further, the fallout is filled with lies, deception, and questions of whether we’ve really come that far in holding people accountable for their actions. Outside of that, it’s a deliciously fraught story — and you won’t want to miss a minute.

The lengths that Smith goes through to hurt his victims are cruel, crazy, and ingenious…with a dash of narcism to even things out. The series will take you to some emotionally dark places, especially as more and more victims begin to surface. You need a week-to-week break.

Yes, 200 minutes is long, but people binge Netflix shows that long all the time (and it’s still shorter than “The Irishman”), and this is one of the fastest 200 minutes you’ll see all year.
