Run-time and pacing
The show is fast-paced and will hook you in the first episode. Another great thing about it is the runtime; With eight episodes having a runtime of 20 minutes each, it can be completed within 3 hours.
The show caters more to the young urban population, which may take the realism away for a different set of audiences. Unlike many rom-coms, the show is set in a realistic world.
The show has some great supporting characters who felt underused and underdeveloped after a point. Jim Sarbh as Wiz (Ray’s inner voice) is easily the show’s best character and makes the whole viewing experience enjoyable!
Eternally confused and eager for love revolves around Ray’s love life and thus follows a similar pattern of dates, dinners, going to clubs, etc. almost all of the episodes, which might get boring to watch after a while.
