PLATONIC was a mixed bag of events that didnโ€™t come close to climaxing during a dry 8 to 10 seconds. It was an episode of sleepovers, and apologies.ย 

Sylvia (Rose Byrne) and Will (Seth Rogen) are very much in step with each other but not with any other aspect of their lives. They both secretly thought they would have accomplished more by now in their lives. They seem to be standing on a precipice somewhere. Let me know when they figure it out. Otherwise, nothing new is really going down. I wish the writers would give them both some solid direction.ย 

PLATONIC offers really nothing new. It is what it is. Will argue and yells to make his point. Sylvia forgives everyone she meets. It is a simple premise that just doesnโ€™t make a difference in anyoneโ€™s life. 

PLATONIC is available to stream on APPLE tv+.
