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.
