5 Reasons to Watch Made for Love by HBO Max

It has just been released on HBO Max the first season of Made for Love, a Serie Max Original which tells the story of the character Hazel Green. In the plot, she discovers that her husband Byron Gogol, an entrepreneur at a large technology company, has implanted a chip in her brain to gain access to all her thoughts and desires – without her consent. So she decides to run away.

The eight-episode series mixes humor and science fiction. If you're looking for a new series to marathon, check out the five reasons below – no spoilers – to check out Made for Love.

It is based on the novel by the same name by Alissa Nutting

Made for Love is the third book of Alissa Nutting, the American author who also wrote COVER, one of the most controversial novels of 2013, according to the British newspaper The Guardian. Made for Love is no different. When HBO Max confirmed the production, there was doubt whether the audiovisual would be able to convey the manic humor of the written narrative. After the release, the response from expert critics was unique: yes. American writer Alissa Nutting not only wrote the book, but co-adapted the script for the series alongside showrunner Christina Lee.

Has the actress Cristin Milioti as the protagonist

The protagonist Hazel Green is played by Cristin Milioti. For those who haven't linked the name to the person, here's the tip: the actress appeared on TV for the first time, playing the famous mother of the series How I Met Your Mother. In addition to participating in award-winning musicals at Broadway, she made movies like the wolf of Wall Street. His versatile acting that wanders through comedy and drama is one of the highlights of the series.

Billy Magnussen, in the role you love to hate

Completing the romantic couple, we have Billy Magnussen playing Byron Gogol, Hazel's husband and a billionaire inventor who suffers from serious control issues while trying to reconnect with his wife. "He is the personification of the toxic masculinity”, in the actor's own words in an interview with Vanity Fair. A garbage boy who doesn't know how to relate. Who has never experienced one of these? Billy is irritatingly well in the role of the clueless husband who no longer knows how to live outside the Hub, a virtual reality house he created. It's worth checking out his work.

It has a plastic doll as a character that makes us think

You know when the show is really bold, when you have a sex doll as a supporting role, for example. In her escape, Hazel goes to her father's house, played by the actor Ray Romano, and finds him living an oddly tender relationship with Diane, a “synthetic partner” as he calls himself.

Raises an important discussion about the relationship between privacy and technology

Last but not least: albeit in an extreme way, Made for Love ends up bringing up the discussion about the relationship between privacy and technology. We've never been as dependent on the digital world as we are now and, in turn, this new age of technology has never so exposed our privacy. The question that is asked is: how to establish limits in this relationship? A relevant question especially in the current pandemic context, where much of our life is digital.
