Critic Reviews for Bless This Mess Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

It's a solid 22 minutes of television, offering exactly what's been promised since Elizabeth Meriwether and Lake Bell's sitcom earned a green light, from the promising ensemble to the tried-and-true premise.

Urban hipsters turn to farm life in promising comedy.

Interesting subplot - sexy magnetism between farmer E Begley Jr. and local cop Pam Grier.

The premise is very easy to dismiss, but I'd still recommend sticking with it. Give it a few episodes to find itself.

Bless This Mess isn't trying to wow you with needless razzle-dazzle. It's just a well-written show with an endlessly likable cast that'll make you smile.

Bell and Meriwether's script has precious little time to set up what the series is going to look like, and therefore gets to quick work making it all happen as soon as possible.

The talent behind Bless This Mess is the epitome of competent comedy

Escapism has its place, but this feels more insubstantial.

From the stars to the ensemble to the assembled creative talent, Bless This Mess has the elements to become a pleasant comedy success, but with only the pilot, very hung up on establishing its premise, to go by here, it would require me to project.

We may not be rewatching "Bless This Mess" in 40 years, but it's worth embracing now.

Audience Reviews for Bless This Mess: Season 1

I like this show except a couple things. They use the Brooklyn 99 mannerisms way too much i.e. "c-c-c-c-c-c-c-cooooll" and the lead actress somehow makes it seem like the show is just a way to make out with that Dax guy. They should have gotten someone else to play the lead female, I know she's one of the creators but there you have it. I just get a he's-not-that-into-you vibe with the lack of chemistry on his part. Everyone else is great!

Could see this being parks-n-rec adjacent. Great actors, relevent material, endearing heart. Sad only 6 episodes.

Really funny. I am enjoying this show.

This show was original compared to the action/sci-fi/drama/cop shows. Looked like it had great potential. Didn't laugh. Bored. If it is renewed for 2nd season, it is due to the ABC network not having anything better to show. Scary thought.

Very Fun, but quiet kind of show. Cute idea (kind of a Green Acres Reboot of sorts). Needs a little bit tighter editing. Scenes tend to run a little bit too long. This is a show that needs to build a little. If given time, this could gel into a great show. (Like the first season of Cheers, that had fairly poor ratings at first, until support from the Head of the Network to give the show a second season. It gave propl a chance to find the show).

The show is beginning to jell after several episodes; good writing and good ensemble.

I've watched it. It is really funny. Give it a chance. Great cast and good chemistry with all characters.

I really like this show! It's really got heart - and the main characters are not too cutesy or too over the top clueless. I can identify with them - which is what makes the show so watchable. Too many comedies today just go for the "over the top" crazy dumb situations and that is not funny to me. The characters in this show are a little silly - but believable. The situations are funny but relate-able. I hope it gets picked up for more seasons!

Super funny, I swear the female has my personality haha, Id be singing to the chickens too! I LOVE this show, and SO wanted a new sitcom to enjoy.. GREAT job, well rounded, hilarious characters, a great plot!! Also, alot of comedic value, unlike ALOT of new shows.. BRAVO! Great writing, great acting!

If you like your comedy frenetic, you'll enjoy this.
