Toxic relationships, breakups, crazy exes- most people are aware of these situations but not many can relate to dating a billionaire who has planted tracking devices in our brains for analysis. That is what Made For Love introduces us to, it is an American cynical dark rom-com based on the book of the same name by Alissa Nutting. The show is known for its dark and witty humor. The book and the show do have prime similarities but are also different in quite some aspects and not an exact replica.
Made For Love Plot
Made in Love features a long-time married couple, Hazel and Byron. The show opens with the not so rare anymore “In medias res” where the viewers get a look into the chaotic future and the whole show builds the tension unto that point explaining the previous events all along leading to it. It is quite creepy a background when Byron’s technology has the power to estimate and measure what anyone around him wants or requires, be it Hazel or a dolphin.
The story usually highlights their on and off fights which also becomes quite impossible and difficult when Byron’s highly advanced technology is there and also explains Hazel’s past that led her to her husband in the first place.
The show highlights the extremes of what technology is capable of doing to humanity alongside Hazel’s story and how dreadfully she tries to escape from the shackles of her toxic and abusive husband. She feels suffocated and constrained in this 10-year marriage as her husband fitted a device and that implanted in her brain, giving him full freedom to keep a track of her at all times, her location, whereabouts, he can always watch her live and also informed him about her “emotional data”. Hazel tries to break free from this caged marriage and reclaim her independence.
