Mad About You

Critics Consensus

While Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser's chemistry remains charmingly in tact, Mad About You's relevance does not.

Critic Reviews for Mad About You Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (10)

Watching Mad About You feels like visiting each and every long-term couple I know - but there's still not much to be said, or that many laughs to be had.

It's a soft incitement and leads to a soft reboot. It's pretty middle-of-the-road stuff and you never feel like NBC made a mistake in not wanting this reboot

Nov 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Spectrum's Mad About You reboot is agreeable enough to coax some smiles and even a little audible laughter on occasion.

Top Critic

It's kind of fun seeing Reiser and Hunt slip back into these characters, but as is so often true with these exercises, the kick/novelty pretty quickly wears off.

Paul and Jamie are so awful in their return that it's hard to remember why we liked watching them every week in the first place.

Is it worth watching? If you liked the original, I think so. But of course, if you don't have Spectrum, it's irrelevant, because you can't watch it.

The revival of Mad About You is a pleasant watch that doesn't try to do too much or remind you of the original series. And, as far as revivals go, that's pretty good.

Nov 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The revival's biggest offense is simply feeling like a relic of a different time.

Nov 20, 2019 | Rating: 50/100 | Full Review…

Like a lot of other aging couples, Reiser and Hunt are not quite as funny as they think.

Nov 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Reiser and Hunt still have chemistry.

Nov 26, 2019 | Full Review…

None of this is great art, by any stretch... but I still found myself feeling a certain affection for it.

Nov 13, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Mad About You should be warm comfort food for fans of the series. For new viewers it's a reminder of what sitcoms were like in the heyday of network television.

    Fantastic so happy to see you back together with such a good show haven't missed a beat hope it keeps going

    Just finished binge watching this show and can't wait until the next ones come out. I love the relationship Jamie has with Paul. I'm trying to show the same type of love for my spouse.
  • Dec 25, 2019
    I forgot how good their chemistry is- and frankly I loved how funny they still are!!
  • Dec 19, 2019
    Again! Why? It's time has come and gone.
