    Marry Me is the rarest of commercial TV sitcoms in that it's actually funny, has two standout leads and a superb supporting cast (especially Meadows and Bucatinsky).

    Marry Me runs a solid second to ABC’s black-ish in the informal competition for best new comedy series of the fall season. Episode 1 gets off to a terrifically inventive start, with Wilson and Marino teeing things up before further hitting their grooves apart from one another.

    Marry Me wouldn't work without Wilson and Marino, who make Annie and Jake just cringeworthy enough to be funny.

    There is a lot to like and there is great potential, so give it a chance and see if you want to engage with Marry Me every week.

  • Rob Owen

    Taken on its own, Marry Me offers a fast-moving, often hilarious debut episode that traffics in pop culture references as it establishes Annie as the loon and Jake as the tolerant, abiding guy who loves her.

  • Erik Adams

    Such easy chemistry early on is a positive sign for the show’s future, as is the approach of the supporting cast, which gamely attacks the small amount of material it’s given in the pilot.

    This is definitely promise ring material.

  • Mark A. Perigard

    Wilson might be playing Penny with a better apartment, but she’s always a delight. Marino makes for a great sparring partner, and Williams has been off our screens far too long.

  • Hank Stuever

    Though I’m not in love with the idea of another sitcom in which a woman fixates on engagement rings and wedding planning, it’s impossible to resist the fluidly written, sharply performed quips and pop-culture references that are effortlessly strewn across Marry Me’s pilot episode.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Sarah Rodman

    Longtime supporting actors Marino and Wilson are dynamite front and center.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Zach Hollwedel

    It doesn't stretch itself too thin working for laughs, but rather earns them genuinely.

  • Jethro Nededog

    The pilot for NBC's Marry Me isn't love at first sight, but there's enough potential there to expect that with time viewers may adore it.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    At its best the show’s language is inventively and diversely funny, drawing laughs in two or three or four different ways within the space of seconds.... There are moments, though--and they come more often as the episode goes along--when the tone turns a little more earnest and brushes up against the sentimental.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    It seems so entranced by its own cleverness that it too often crosses that socially acceptable line between self-confidence and narcissism.... Marino is instantly winning, and Wilson is a gifted comic performer who just needs to pull back a bit.

  • Ellen Gray

    [Casey Wilson and Ken] Marino have established a nice chemistry by the end of the pilot, which gives me hope for a show whose premise appeared limiting.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Marisa LaScala

    It’s a credit to Caspe and Marry Me’s other creators that the series premiere introduces all of these characters and their relationships seamlessly, without clunky, expositional dialogue about how they all met.

    PopMatters Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    The pilot is high-strung but basically acceptable, and I'll keep watching in the well-founded hopes that it will find consistently entertaining groove and use its fine cast (which includes Tim Meadows and Dan Bucatinsky as Annie's dads) as well as "Happy Endings" used its fab ensemble.

    The Huffington Post Full Review
  • Robert Rorke

    Television has a rich tradition of wacky wife/reasonable husband comedies, from “I Love Lucy” to more contemporary examples such as “Will & Grace” (a platonic rom-com) “Dharma & Greg” to the relationship between Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and Jay (Ed O’Neill) on “Modern Family.” Sorry to say, Marry Me is not yet in this company.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Wilson and Marino are a winning duo, but I'm not sure Annie and Jake's turbulent relationship is enough to sustain a show that lacks distinction in its supporting cast.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Despite some funny bits and solid supporting players--including JoBeth Williams, a recurring character as Jake’s disapproving mom--the writing also works a bit too hard at times.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    In some ways, the show is a throwback to the days of wacky female sitcom stars with a lot of physical humor. What’s lacking is charm and lovability.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    [Marry Me is] just too much an embodiment of the sitcom usual, and the gender-stereotypes usual, and the network-creativity usual.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Unfortunately, the show seems to be slightly less than a sum of its parts.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Marry Me starts off annoying and unlikable and rarely dips from that, even though fans of Happy Endings will no doubt tune in for star Casey Wilson and for that show's creator, David Caspe, who also created this one.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    We don’t dislike Annie or Jake. It’s just really hard to imagine where else Marry Me could go from here, and harder to imagine why we would care.
