Maya & Marty: Season 1 (2016)


Critic Consensus: Maya & Marty is a safer, weekday version of Saturday Night Live with little to recommend it other than Maya Rudolph and Martin Short's admittedly considerable charms.

Critic Reviews for Maya & Marty Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

Ironically, one of the things that was a problem for such an underwhelming show on the whole was that it had a couple of flashes of excitement that emphasized how phoned-in some of the rest of it often felt.

The whole enterprise felt like a modest "Tuesday Night Live" with Lorne Michaels executive producing. The old-school sketch comedy veterans pulled it off. They could help pass the time on a hot summer night.

Oh how I love Maya Rudolph and Martin Short. And oh how I didn't love their new summer variety series, Maya & Marty.

I agree that Martin Short is a treasure, and I feel much the same about Maya Rudolph. That's why it's somewhat heartbreaking to report that Maya & Marty... seems, at least on first viewing, like a mess.

It's during the sketches that the show loses steam. Many of the ideas seem half-baked; they start out promisingly, but don't go anywhere.

It's amazing that people as intelligent as Rudolph, Smart, and Michaels didn't realize immediately that doing a mere variation on SNL would fall flat.

It turned out to be Saturday Night Live lite. That's not a bad thing.

It's a variety show from 1976, with the freedom and production values of 2016. It's not for everybody, but if it's for you, you'll know it.

Unsure of how to distinguish itself as a something wholly original.

Jun 2, 2016 | Full Review…

With the right guests and a little more finesse from the writers, Maya & Marty has the elements to be amiable and doesn't require staying up late on a weeknight.
