  • Gary and Allison have to pretend to be married.

    Just an incredible episode of Gary Unmarried fresh off the news of its pickup. Glad to CBS has faith in the freshman show as this has the potential to be the next King of Queens or Everybody Loves Raymond for them (in quality, not in ratings). Too many great lines from Stuart saying, "We're not divorced but things are looking pretty bad about now," to Gary changing everything Allison said into romantic vows to the gay husband just a plethora of laughs on Gary Unmarried. This show is usually one of the top comedies on CBS but this episode actually scored better for me than The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men this week. This speaks miles about the progress this show is made and just how underrated it truly is. Gary Unmarried should not be flying under anyone's radar anymore with a half hour like this.moreless
  • Great show.

    In my opinion this is the best new comedy on TV right now by far. Gary and Allison pretend to still be married when they go to meet old friends that are renewing their vows. Allison does not want her old friend to know they are divorced because the friend said they would never make it. Gary and Allison come clean at the vow renewals about being divorced only to find out some of their other friends were also divorced but were trying to cover it up. The kicker is Allison's friends husband reveals he is gay This show just makes me laugh from start to finish every time I watch. It is well written and well acted. They seem to mesh well together on screen.moreless
  • The show had lots of funny lines and situations when Gary and Allison pretend they are still married.

    Gary and Allison go to a friend's wedding vows renewal ceremony and pretend they are still married because Allison can't bear for her friend Beth to know that their marrieage failed and that they are now divorced.

    Most of the previous episodes in this series I have found rather forced and unfunny but this week's show was a vast improvement. The script was the best yet and I laughed out loud for the first time at this show.

    I hope this is all a good a sign for things to come and that Gary Unmarried will become the clasic comedy it deserves to be.moreless
