Occupies a sweet spot of satire, social critique and surveillance-state-inspired horror while still being hilarious.

Decently made and certainly watchable, but it's tough to shake the sense that we have seen this show before.

Today, the story feels disappointingly familiar — but Milioti is worth hanging on for, even though the show may not be the partner that she, or we, deserve.

Herbert is the proof that "Made for Love" still knows the real deal: that true love can't be quantified, only felt. The more the show lets us feel it, the better off it will be.
