I Like This Show. It Is Fun.
2 May 2010 | by (BengaLuru, Karnataka) – See all my reviews

I have watched only 4 sitcoms (Friends, HIMYM, Big Bang Theory, Two & A Half Men - the first three are my favourites and the last one, I really hate) and this is my fifth. So, all of the clichés or stereotypes are not ALL clichés for me. This is a very funny show in my opinion. I watched this after watching the preview scenes on TV which seemed very fun. I have to say, its not bad and it is worth the time to check it out.

Gary divorced his wife of 15 years, Allison after built up tensions and hatred from the last few years. They have two children - a girl and a boy. I loved the girl as she's so compassionate towards environment, people and life in general. The boy is hilarious whenever he comes on screen (wat will I do when she expects me to tap it?!!). Gary is a type of jock and we all know that he is not cut out for the mature acting part, and I really liked him. His 40 year old wife, Allison is hot and she is also a really likable character. Gary is playing the field for now as he is a free man and just one month after the divorce, he is already in a relationship with another single mom.

Even though the show is about middle aged parents problems with their life, the writers have wonderfully concocted a very lovable family with some good writing. We don't have dumb beautiful girls every episode like in Two & A Half Men and the characters are fleshed out as well as you can expect out of a comedy sitcom. Nobody in this show is someone who you would love to hate, maybe Allison, but she's also pretty likable for me. The acting is OK for the most part, but sometimes Gary comes across as just delivering his lines, but it can be overcome because the screenplay is so much fun. The daughter's character is my favourite because she's so cute, loyal to her cause, and very positive towards life and the one scene I really like is when Gary tells her that she is beautiful and she blushes and tells him 'I knooooow. My friend's lazy eye totally corrected itself when he saw me.' That was actually really cute. I have seen 14 episodes of 'Gary Unmarried' and I am looking forward for the rest of the season. Though not a great sitcom like my favourites, this is a perfectly fine entertaining show for me to pass time in the evenings when I come back from college.

8/10
