Down for Love Review 2023 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online

Netflix might crank out some of TV’s most diabolical social experiments (looking at you, The Ultimatumand Love Is Blind!) but with its new reality show Down for Love, the streaming giant proves it contains multitudes.

Unlike most modern dating shows, which revel in making their participants as uncomfortable as possible for our entertainment, Down for Love is a gentler, more organic form of exploration. Based in gorgeous New Zealand, the series follows several young daters with Down syndrome as they search for love. The five-episode series first aired last year in New Zealand and made its debut on Netflix Aug. 11.

Down for Love, which was produced in consultation with New Zealand Down Syndrome Association,follows 10 people with Down syndrome who are searching for their soulmates. Among them are actress Libby Hunsdale, who recently starred in the 2021 film Poppy, award-winning photographer and swimming champCarlos Biggemann, and 18-year-old model Lily-Mae Ivatt Oakley.

The daters of Down for Love cover a wide variety of interests, talents, and accomplishments. There’s Josh, a bubbly soul who loves clubbing, and there’s Aelinor—a shyer, quieter person with fiery red hair, who winds up catching the eye of the very extroverted, Bolivian-born polyglot Carlos. There’s Leisel, who we quickly discover is an absolute wizard at miniature golf, and there’s Brayden—who is admittedly not nearly as good at golfing but is very good at supporting Leisel and affirming just how much he cares about her.

On the surface, Down for Love has a lot in common with Love on the Spectrum—although the two do not share a producer. Love on the Spectrum, another carefully crafted feel-good dating series that’s based in Australia, documents the romantic lives of people with autism. Both series follow a small group of people on a quest for love, and both include sessions with dating coaches to help their subjects navigate dating and intimacy. (Love on the Spectrum comes from Northern Pictures, while Attitude Pictures and TVF International produced Down for Love.)

Speaking with the New Zealand-based online magazine The Spinoff, Down for Love producer Robyn Paterson noted that Attitude founder Robyn Scott-Vincent has made it her mission to enlighten people on disability issues after her own son was barred from attending the family’s local school due to his disability. “She felt like if people understood more about living with disability, that perhaps that would start to change people’s perceptions,” Paterson said.

Down for Love spends a little less time with its dating coaches than Love on the Spectrum does/ The latter series also focuses on the already-established couple Jimmy and Sharnae Berresford a little more robustly than Down for Love centers its own pre-existing match, Brooke and Jesse. By the end of Down with Love, I found myself craving the anchor that Jimmy and Sharnae provided in the other series. As entertaining as it can be to watch people go on blind dates, a stronger presence from Brooke and Jesse would have allowed the series to display a different, more advanced kind of romance.
