The first episode of the series was aired on 10 February 2021, to coincide the Valentine's Day weekend.

Rahul (Kanna Ravi) and Sneha (Gayathrie Shankar) have started therapy recently to work on their marriage. Upon their psychologist’s insistence on taking frequent trips, they are both spending the weekend in Wayanad. On their first night there, they get into a minor argument about who gets to decide the alarm tone. And soon they digress, and things escalate quickly as the tempers rise. They later compromise each other, and their weekend getaway ends with a happy note.
Having become parents recently, Vishnu (Dev) and Shruthi (Vidya Pradeep) are having a stressful time adjusting to the new routine. Shruthi is searching for her pregnancy test kit, and blamed Vishnu for misplacing it. They are amidst a heated argument, nervously trying to search it; all this while trying hard not to wake up their 8 month old baby. During the argument, Shruthi found her pregnancy kit, for which she tested negative. Later Vishnu and Shruthi understands themselves and ends their fight.
Varun (Sachin Nachiappan) is miffed at Shalini (Samyuktha Vishwanathan) for following a male colleague of hers on Instagram. Repeated phone calls and texts get on her nerves, and she lashes back. The argument escalates to what seems to be a point of no return, no repair.
Kaushik (Vinayak Vaithianathan) and Kavya (Teju Ashwini), a newly married couple, are running late to a get together. They know where they want to go, but Kaushik thinks Kavya’s directions aren’t helping them get there. They swap roles, and with the same results, especially because Kaushik is a massive mansplainer.
A tired, heart broken Pallavi (Sanjana Krishnamurthy) wakes up to demeaning, sarcastic remarks on her social media. She decides to delete the post that created the uproar only to find her password changed. Knowing that it is the work of her ex-boyfriend Vikram (Vignesh Mohan), she gives him one last call.

Ashutosh Mohan of Film Companion stated "The five-episode web series looks at messy, and sometimes dark, arguments between couples from a light-hearted perspective. Each of the five episodes in the anthology series zooms in on a single event from a couple’s relationship. In ten minutes or so we get a sharp and economical portrayal of an argument followed by a clever resolution. The episodes are often intelligent and always amusing."
