  • Funny episode where gary tries to find Allison a new boyfriend and she tries to persuade him to try new things.

    There perhaps wasn't much in the way of plot in this episode of Gary Unmarried but that was more than compensated for by the plethora of great lines, particularly from Gary. The gags came thick and fast and were pretty funny. Dennis had a bit to do in this which is always good to see. The idea of putting out a poster with tear off strips advertising Allison was briliant. It would have been nice to see a bit more of Tommy and Louise in this as they both act really well and have great timing with their lines. Will there be any more of this series?moreless
  • Gary tries to hook up Allison

    This installment wasn't as funny as the previous one, but still there were a lot of good scenes. Gary tries to setup a date for Allison, after she starts showing up at his house all the time. I liked the part, where Al Madrigal gives him the idea of a flyer with tags to advertise her single status. The line where he says that he sold is bed the same way was priceless. We didn't get to see Charlie this episode, nor do we get to see a lot of Tom and Louise. Maybe, that's why this one was less hilarious than most episodes.

    I don't see why CBS should cancel this show. I would suggest they axe HIMYM and move this one the Monday slot.moreless
  • Gary continues dating Ms. Plummer.

    Come back Ed Begley Jr.! The show just is not the same without Walter Krandall. His exchanges Gary were always hilarious, and the show is just missing that type of character. I'm inclined to call him a villain, but that probably is not the most accurate description, but that's the best way toe elucidate my feelings.

    There were some funny moments, but nothing that I laughed at for more than a second or will be telling people about tomorrow.

    Was this the last episode of the show? I certainly hope not as this has been a fun series and if it does get canceled this would be a horrible way to end on.moreless
