Imaginary Mary: Season 1 (2017)


Season 1
Imaginary Mary

Critics Consensus

Imaginary Mary's appealing cast is canceled out by uninspired material and a ridiculous premise whose deficiencies are compounded by an unfunny, ill-advised CGI creature.

Critic Reviews for Imaginary Mary Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

Imaginary Mary demonstrates how a screwy concept can defeat a charming cast.

Mar 24, 2017 | Full Review…

The show feels like it's made up of pieces from several different jigsaw puzzles, the tabs jammed into the blanks with zero regard for compatibility.

Probably the biggest flaw of Imaginary Mary is that it could also be called Superfluous Mary. I don't find Mary spectacularly annoying, though surely many viewers will. I just found her essentially unnecessary.

Mar 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Yes, it's a fantasy, but it's an oddly off-putting one.

Mar 29, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Poor Jenna Elfman, trapped yet again in a lifeless comedy.

Apr 5, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

It seems like a harmless little diversion at this point, with Elfman and Dratch playing well off one another in a fantasy that may have enough winning moments to survive its tough-to-pull-off premise.

Top Critic

There's actually a decent sitcom in here... but the imaginary friend is completely unnecessary. It feels like a lame gimmick. The show would be better without it.

Mar 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Aside from some impressive animation work, Imaginary Mary is all energy without any of the effort.

Mar 29, 2017 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

ABC is casting its comedy lot with these weird animated hybrids, but the better of them, Downward Dog, is yet to come this spring.

Mar 29, 2017 | Full Review…

It's biggest novelty is also its biggest weakness.

Mar 30, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's a show worth picking up that goes right along with the incoming wave of creative-premise based comedies like Speechless.

Mar 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Winning actors and decent gags give a bit of lift to this sweet-natured family comedy, but the "adult with an imaginary friend" storyline hasn't aged well.

Audience Reviews for Imaginary Mary: Season 1

  • May 30, 2017
    This show was dead right out of the gate. Tired and unfunny with a bored cast on display.
  • May 15, 2017
    I think it's actually pretty funny. I thought I would hate it, but...it's okay. Give it a chance. :-)
  • May 02, 2017
    I enjoy the show and the premise of the show. It really didn't need the imaginary friend to be interesting. Just the discomfort of dating a guy with teenage kids is interesting enough.
  • Apr 11, 2017
    I love Jenna!! Show is great and I hope it keeps going strong.

    Let's ban ABC, Imaginary Mary is TV at its laziest.
  • Mar 30, 2017
    Oh my god I love the show it is a very good time and fun to watch it is hilarious and heartwarming gotta love it I love Mary yes she's not a good role model and uses adult subject matter and phrases like. Run kick him in the nuts and run. And I am alive as hell . But I do love it it's laugh out loud funny and cute and very good but I don't think it is suitable for smaller kids due to content listed above i do however think that it is a huge hit with the older kid's if you do let the younger set watch please watch this as a family and discuss the thing that are appropriate jokes and humor and what is not appropriate jokes and humor like I said it's a riot but it just may not be for everyone but I recommend it

    There's room for improvement so far. Imaginary Mary boosts some impressive CGI work and it has it's humorous moments, but sadly, the technology is buried underneath some less than likable characters and some dull, patchwork writing begging for some energy.
