Imaginary Mary: Season 1 (2017)


Critic 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…

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.

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

It's biggest novelty is also its biggest weakness.

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…

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…

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

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

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

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

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…

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.
