Love Me (S1/2021 & S2/2023) Series:- {Spoilers Free} review

Unlike the super-wealthy dysfunctional family depicted in the “Succession Show“, the middle-class families in the “Love Me Series” seem so real and identifiable to people like me. I found them lovable humans with their imperfections and strengths.


Glen Mathieson (Hugo Weaving) is a 64-year-old elderly retired man who has loved and lost Christine Mathieson (Sarah Peirse) under trying circumstances. Then he gets a second shot with Anita (Heather Mitchell), a little late in life. What will Glen do?


Clara Mathieson (Bojana Novakovic) is a 38-year-old busy career woman working as an anaesthetist in a big hospital. Tired of the endless failures getting on with her love life with the help of dating apps, she is running out of time and patience. Until she meets Peter (Bob Morley), a model. What will Clara do?


Aaron Mathieson (William Lodder) is a 24-year-old. who works in the Law firm. He gets into a complicated love/friendship relationship with two girls – Ella (Shalom Brune-Franklin) and Jesse (Mitzi Ruhlmann). even at such a young age. What will Aaron do?


Being a sucker for romantic content, I wish I could narrate the complete love stories of these characters mentioned above. But then I am under strict instructions, not to give away unnecessary details about its plot and share its spoilers. I liked the acting performances of the ensemble cast of the Love Me series, especially the funny acts of Hugo Weaving and the graceful acts of Heather Mitchell.

I can reiterate that watch the Love Me series, as it is a typical middle-class tale about the complexities of love and relationships in modern times, narrated in a sensitive and charming manner.

Focus:- actor Hugo (Wallace) Weaving

While watching the Love Me series, I realized that I have seen the aged actor Hugo Wallace in a popular movie of the past. So, I looked closely and Viola! Suddenly I found the elderly and lovable Hugo in an old movie series called Matrix playing the role of antagonist Agent Smith. Wearing his dark glasses, he was staring right back at me, with his menacing eyes. Lol!

Hugo Weaving in Matrix

In his long career spanning more than four decades of acting jobs, that was the list of his body of works over the years. No doubt, Hugo (Wallace) Weaving is a wonderful actor.
