  • Average.

    Gary Unmarried returned tonight after a brief hiatus. While the show was filled with laughs, it was also the second CBS comedy within a week to feature an episode revolving around an impromptu trip to Las Vegas (the first being The Big Bang Theory).

    I did like the "subliminal" advertising for KFC Grilled Chicken, and I may have to buy some this weekend, but I just wish the episode was a little bit funnier. Everything seemed just a bit too constrained and the Mclovin reference just did not seem to fit in with the show's usual style of humor.

    Not terrible, just not one of the better episodes.moreless
  • Gary's half brother drops in..

    Well, this was a typical filler episode. Not too bad to give a trashing or too good to swoon over it. The focus was on Gary finding himself more Allison-like in the presence of his half brother, who happens to be a more irresponsible version of Gary. There weren't any scenes that really stood up. I vaguely recall laughing for the 'now we don't have a broom joke', and 'my cleaning lady divorced my joke'. Even Al Madrigal wasn't funny this time around. The herbs and spices part was too lame, and honestly- I didn't find it funny at all. Probably the writers just ran out of ideas.moreless
  • Funny Show

    This show tonight was dead on funny - really great jokes and Riggle and Mohr and Marshall play off of each other well. CBS would be nuts not to renew this - good cast, good writing, good stuff! Even Max Gail who plays the old hippie dad scored tonight - he had been a bit TOO sedated of late but his chracater was used well in the episode and the jail cell scene was hilarious.moreless
