It's the time of year when TV critics begin to drill down and make their choices for the best programs of the previous 12 months. I knew while I was watching it last weekend that Amazon Prime’s Modern Love was going to land in my top ten. This surprises me in ways I hadn’t even thought about before I binged its eight half-hour episodes. I’ve watched more than my share of love stories in decades of TV viewing, in primetime and daytime and on my own time, and while many of them were delightful and entertaining, I realize now that few (if any) really celebrated the intimacies and complexities of relationships the way this show has done. It's full of hurt, but brimming with hope. Above all, it has heart, a rare commodity these days. Right from the first few minutes of the opening episode Love had a hold on me.
