Mary + Jane: Season 1 Reviews

  • Dec 09, 2016

    Great first and last episodes, and performances by the two lead girls! Those episodes are the only ones written only by the creators, and without an "executive story editor" (bullshit job.) They also directed two episodes, the third which was decent (they didn't write it) and the finale. That's why I think the finale shined as the best episode. They had already done the show, and at this point an entire season, so they were able to do better than the pilot which they need to use to build and sell the show. The third episode was decent, their direction helped poor writing that used the interesting plot as an excuse for not writing laughs. Other than those three, there aren't really any other good episodes, the rest are just alright. Glad I watched all the way to the end. I had quit watching, but with only two episodes left, and usually I like my reviews to be as accurate as possible, which means watching the whole season. It's alright, disappointing season after a good pilot, but the season benefits from starting and ending strong.

    This is a fun show. I like the cast, I laugh every episode, and I think it's a good plot. I watched like 7 episodes in a row randomly and I'm sad I have to wait for more now that I'm caught up! I can understand if some people think they act ditsy, but I think they're strong female characters. I don't know how long MTV's shows usually last, but I really hope this one sticks around! I loved that Seth green guest starred in the last episode- I hope he stays, too. This show has promise- If you love Broad City, you'll (hopefully) love this
