Critic Consensus: The leads are endearing, but A to Z's writing feels gimmicky and lacks a fresh perspective on the modern-day TV romance.

As a whole, the show contains a little more cliché than innovation, but the two principals are cute and likable, and the jokes are good. After the premiere, most viewers will be up for a second date.
Milioti and Feldman are adorable, but I'm going to need to care about them a lot more if I stick with this all the way to Z.
Both Feldman and Milioti are appealing, but the show doesn't feel particularly fresh, and there's probably one gimmick too many, from the voiceover narration to the prescribed length of the courtship to the alphabetic episodic themes.
I could easily see viewers who miss How I Met Your Mother investing in this pair of love-crossed beautiful people.
Once you get past all the stuff that's being used to make the show stand out - the show is pretty good.
