  • It had the potential to be an AMAZING show then Season 2 came!

    8.0
    It's hard to write a review about a show that you love, but has faced terrible episodes. Gary Unmarried is that kind of show. The first episode I ever saw was the Pilot, and I was immediately hooked. It felt like a fresh, new brilliant comedy. The chemistry between Gary and Allison was amazing, and you could already be rooting for them to get back together from the start.



    So what happened?



    I feel like the show transformed into a caricature of itself in the 2nd season. It wasn't the same show anymore. There were more characters introduced (characters we just did NOT care about), there were characters that were suddenly dropped and never mentioned again (Gary's friend? Forgot his name) and it just felt like a completely different show.



    I didn't like Gary's "serious" girlfriend in the 2nd season, or the whole radio-show plot. There were very few good episodes all of a sudden, and very few interactions between Allison and Gary, the 2 people who were driving the show into awesome-ness in its 1st season.



    But I do give credit for the season finale (which eventually turned out to be a series finale). That was a well-written, cleverly-plotted episode. And sadly, it was the last one. It had so much more potential, and it would've been nice to see a continuation, especially since it ended in a cliffhanger.



    In short, this was a great show. Sadly, I feel like it will be forgotten in 2 to 5 years. But there will always be a place for it in my heart.moreless
  • Will he never win.

    9.0
    Loved the show, its a shame it only lasted two seasons.

    It would have been nice if Gary has a little win occasionally.

    But, great show anyway.
  • Great, funny and "real" show. Ok it's still TV

    The second season is noticeably better than the first. I hope his brother comes back from Iraq real soon. That dude is hilarious! BAM! I do hope this show lasts because "Gary" is not the majority of guys, but a pigeon hole demographic. The ex-jock, popular, with some mean/non-moral friends, but an all around good guy who possesses street smarts/wit and truly misses life dreams (sports goals). I love this show! ... Ok, I might relate a little. NUGGET OUT! BAM! ... Ok, how many sitcoms revolve around a fictional entertainment figure(s)? Is it because we all openly or secretly long for fame?moreless
  • Very funny sitcom with a talented and real cast.

    9.0
    Gary Unmarried is one of the funniest new shows of 2008. Jay Mohr leads this hilarious cast as recently divorced house painter Gary Brooks. the show is well written and the jokes are very funnier. jokes that are skillfully pulled off by the entire cast. the portrayal of Gary's ex wife Allison by Paula Marshall is hilarious. Marshall portrays Allisons shrill demanding nature perfectly while keeping the character likable. usually in these types of sitcoms the children are overlooked. however it is impossible to look over the skilled performances by Ryan Malgarini as the slightly nerdy yet charming son Tom and Kathryn Newton as cute overachieving daughter Louise. the only concern is the amount of hatred Gary and Allison seem to have for each other after 15 years of marriage. even if it seems odd it makes for one funny show with an equally funny cast.moreless
  • Good Cast, Funny Writing

    9.8
    I just think the show is well-written and well cast. Mohr and Marshall have a great fighting chemistry and the kids are used well. Both my siblings are divorced and they tell me this show gets it right. When Mohr kept the expensive cake mixer from his wife in the settlement just out of spite my brother said his wife did something just like that - petty and vengeful. Mohr was born to play this guy - a guy's guy - simple man, simple plans but he loves his kids. There are always some lol jokes in every episode. Hope the show comes back next season.moreless
