Mary + Jane: Season 1 Reviews

September 21, 2016
Mary + Jane is not High Maintenance and it's not Broad City. At its best it's got something of the charm of a Pineapple Express mixed with that of a stoner-baiting Taco Bell commercial. At its worst it's a lifeless, flat buddy comedy.

The unimaginative execution of Mary + Jane makes its effectiveness as a product placement vehicle a bit dubious.
September 12, 2016
Mary + Jane trips all over itself in its rush to be current, edgy, and interesting.
September 12, 2016
The endless pot-laced references get a little tired, but some of show's best moments are those that poke fun at the ever-changing (and often outlandish) trends that are part of the Los Angeles scene.

The relationship at the center of all the action is missing an important element: chemistry. Rothe and Durwood are likable as Paige and Jordan, but they don't fit together organically as best friends.

There's enough charm and budding star power here that I'm likely to stick with Mary + Jane, even if its highs are very familiar.
September 2, 2016
Much of Mary + Jane is obnoxious.
September 1, 2016
Mary + Jane struggles to balance the strangeness of Broad City with the somber truth of Girls, and it leads to some tonal issues, but at its funniest this is a noteworthy, endearing, female-centric comedy with high potential.
