Exactly - Compulsive Love isn't actually about love

I haven't seen any more of the Compulsive Love web series since the last time I blogged about it, but I did find the only other review of the series besides my own: a web site called Comedy TV Is Dead has a review of the series. And while it is much more positive than my reviews (it would be hard to like this series less than I do) I was gratified to see that somebody shares my opinion about the way the series is being marketed (my emphasis):
I just can’t help but wonder who it’s (sic) audience will turn out to be. When it comes down to it, Compulsive Love isn’t actually about love. Those tuning in looking for something romantic will invariably be put off by the lack of it. Likewise, the comedy isn’t quite “College Humour” enough for the audience I feel it was intended for. In fact I think the name suggests this, and doesn’t seem likely to appeal to a young male audience.
Thank you!

Although I disagree with the last sentence - I think a young male audience is exactly who this series would appeal to.
