    Mixology is a tone-deaf, poorly executed, badly written series that, in the parlance of the show, kind of rapes comedy.

    ABC's new comedy Mixology is vile.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Dan Fienberg

    Nearly every character is introduced in the most repulsive way possible and then the show tries to backtrack, sell the characters out and make it seem like they're all just marshmallows.

  • Maureen Ryan

    ABC is advertising that the show's creators wrote "The Hangover," but imagine that movie with the heart and charm removed, and you're left with these skeevy remains.

  • Brian Tallerico

    A show with a reasonably clever conceit and strong cast but sunk, again, by weak, narrow-minded writing. Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    The ones who aren't cruel, disloyal and sex-crazed are dim-witted and sex-crazed, which isn't much of an improvement.

    At the end of the night, Mixology doesn’t have a lot of fizz.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    Despite an honest attempt at a fresh concoction, the results taste watered-down.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    There is something mechanical and arbitrary about the plotting, as if a mess of gears that didn't actually go together had been smashed into some semblance of a working order.

  • Matt Roush

    While some of the flirtatious banter in these random odd couplings can be witty and even winsome, after a few rounds (I made it through three episodes), I was ready to close out my tab.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • David Sims

    Mixology has a big enough ensemble that it can present the dating game from multiple angles, but almost all of the angles it picks are stale and predictable.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Vicki Hyman

    Only intermittently funny but unceasingly crass.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Joanne Ostrow

    So far, it's less funny than intriguing, a way to shake up the sitcom.... The series, the first scripted entry from Ryan Seacrest Productions, seems awfully superficial, at least in the first three episodes available for preview.

    Denver Post Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    The producers of this series, who include Ryan Seacrest, nonetheless are asking viewers to patiently sort through a lot of characters.

    Troubled spirits: Mixology is drowning in them. Save yourself.

  • Lori Rackl

    For every great line, there’s a dud.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lily Moayeri

    Mixology has sharp-witted lines that are genuinely funny--if at times highly sexist--rather than being gratuitous, clichés, or too-obvious puns.

  • Rob Owen

    The mix of characters works well and provokes a fair number of laughs.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Karen Valby

    If you like--or like zoning out to--slick and shiny romantic comedies in the vein of New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day, Mixology is the show for you. But underneath the glossy, Ryan Seacrest-produced banner, this cocktail actually has some genuine sweetness and originality.

  • Tom Gliatto

    The characters are too uneven a group: Some of them you instantly overlook, like the olive in a cocktail. Even so, thus has potential. [3 Mar 2014, p.41]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The show is funny enough, although you might wonder where it would go in a second season, but here's the dirty little secret of Mixology: It's intelligent and poignant as well as being entertaining.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    Some twisty situations, some unexpected heart, some nuanced acting. Some serious single-camera potential.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Maintaining this sort of rat-a-rat patter is no small feat, but the series gets off to such a promising start as to bode well for future installments. Moreover, the shifting pairings from episode to episode create a semi-serialized element that deftly builds off the groundwork laid the previous week, conjuring questions about who’s going to wind up with whom.
