Mad Love

Critics Consensus

Mad Love has an outstanding cast that struggles mightily to inject some fresh humor into less-than-inspired situations and dialogue.

Critic Reviews for Mad Love Season 1

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (17)

Anyone worried that the presence of Biggs signals Mad Love will be a TV version of American Pie, serving up buckets of crude teen-guy humor, can exhale.

Some of the hijinks could be fresher, but thanks to a charismatic cast, this Love has lasting power.

You know you've entered the not-so-wonderful world of network TV cloning.

Maybe they should have called it "Sort of Annoying Like."

Feb 14, 2011 | Full Review…

Mad Love is hardly a laugh riot.

A well-made and skillfully executed sitcom. Oh - almost forgot - fun, too.

Top Critic

Half the battle when it comes to a successful sitcom is in the casting and Mad Love is batting at least .750 from day one.

Feb 14, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

There's no freshness, no spark to make it special.

Feb 14, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

There's little this series has to stand apart from all the others, save for some familiar faces in the starring roles.

Feb 13, 2011 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The fact is, at this stage, Sarah Chalke is carrying 'Mad Love' on her very capable shoulders. The question is, is it worth her efforts?

Feb 14, 2011 | Full Review…

Mad Love tells the parallel stories of one couple's love at first sight and their best friends' hate at first meeting. Unfortunately, neither is particularly convincing.

Feb 14, 2011 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

If only it didn't feel so much like a clone of its lead-in How I Met Your Mother.
