Man Seeking Woman

Critics Consensus

Amusingly surrealistic and enjoyably odd, Man Seeking Woman is easy to fall for, taking a ridiculously funny approach to a common theme.

Critic Reviews for Man Seeking Woman Season 1

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (16)

Man Seeking Women is hilarious because it's both sweet and crude.

Top Critic

If you haven't figured this out yet, Man Seeking Woman is plenty weird. But it's also wild, wily, and, depending on your taste for high-risk jokes that don't always fly, wonderful.

Jan 14, 2015 | Full Review…

Amusing, strange, dark, Kafkaesque. Yup, I like it.

Man Seeking Woman too often reminds one of that guy at the bar who is better at the joke set-up than the punchline because it takes SO long to get to it.

Jan 15, 2015 | Full Review…

Man Seeking Woman has the potential to grow, but it'll get there either by broadening its scope or sympathizing more with its characters.

Jan 15, 2015 | Full Review…

Some if not a majority of Man Seeking Woman is forced and juvenile. And the closing Hitler-Maggie scene in Episode 1 might well repulse those viewers who have stuck around for that long.

[A] slightly charming, unpolished mix of the absurd and the emotional.

Mar 12, 2020 | Full Review…

I can't say I'm in love with Man Seeking Woman. But I can definitely say that I'm looking forward to a third date - and that I feel I'm experiencing something truly, and maybe even memorably, different.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

By episode two, the show's surreal depiction of one guy's love life begins to settle in and feel more, well, not exactly normal, but at least expected. And that understanding makes it easier to laugh at what's happening in this bizarre comedy.

Jan 14, 2015 | Full Review…

Mildly amusing without ever being seriously funny, Man Seeking Woman falls short of the insightful, surrealist look at romance that it strives to be.

Jan 14, 2015 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Man Seeking Woman is not just inventive and surreal but absolutely hilarious.

Jan 13, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's not clear whether Josh Greenberg, the lead character in Man Seeking Woman, will find his true love by the end of the show's first season. What is clear, however, is that it's easy to fall in love with this absurd FXX comedy.

Audience Reviews for Man Seeking Woman: Season 1

    The main Character, Josh, is the biggest LOSER i have ever seen on TV. His character is truly pathetic and i cringe just watching the show.
  • Jan 26, 2018
    A bizarre and often hilarious look at contemporary dating, that separates itself from the pack by essentially being a live-action cartoon. There simply are no rules to the world of Man Seeking Woman, with some of the problems that Josh faces this season include dating a troll, misplacing his penis, and misusing time-travel to inadvertently install an evil global overlord. It can be a bit much at times honestly, but the show is also strongest when these outlandish situations act as such potent metaphors for the in-and-outs of modern relationships, and the show is consistently interesting from just a visceral standpoint. It's well cast too, with Jay Baruchel fitting into his typecast as the affable lovelorn dork, Eric Andre working as the ideal comic foil to it, and a whole host of great cameos pop-up throughout the season too. Viewers looking for a relatable show about finding-the-right-one, or those just in search for something a bit different than the norm should find a lot to like in Man Seeking Woman.

    This is a very funny show. Jay Baruchel and Eric Andre play off each other very well and the way the show blends fantasy and real life is hilarious. I binge watched the fist season and I don't regret a minute of it.

    The most original, creative & hilarious show out there. More people need to see it.
  • Sep 28, 2015
    Awesome because it's fucking hilarious!
  • Sep 27, 2015
    Original and clever sketch comedy disguised under a generic rom com premise.
  • Apr 20, 2015
    completely out of its mind crazy, man seeking woman is definitely, definitely NOT for the main stream viewer, but if you can get your mind really open and enjoy the quirky crazyness that Burchel seems to always be apart of, I guarentee you'll love this show

    Great show. Refreshing, dark and really funny at times. The surreal atmosphere is always interesting, and I was looking for more references to things i've thought about in a "cartoonish" way.
