Men in Trees: Season 1 (2006 - 2007)


Season 1
Men in Trees

Critics Consensus

Anne Heche acquits herself amiably as a plucky romantic lead, but Men in Trees is too derivative of better, more distinctive shows for viewers to want a timeshare in this Alaska-set sitcom.

Critic Reviews for Men in Trees Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (13)

Borrows much too heavily from Northern Exposure for the rural setting, so that Elmo is little more than yet another quaint, quirky, and cutesy TV town.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Men in Trees lets Heche remind everyone what a versatile, charming actress she can be... She could use some surprising storytelling to go along with the smart talk.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The show doesn't really break any truly new creative ground. But it's a clever, engaging series that explores the search for love and tackles the question on the minds of many modern singles: What am I doing wrong?

Jan 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Heche's sunny performance is the best thing about Men in Trees... But the whole fish-out-of-water-in-Alaska conceit was covered by Northern Exposure, which also had the benefit of more clearly defined, original characters.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Creator Jenny Bicks, still coasting on her scripts for Sex and the City, has yet to figure out how to connect women on the couch with the women in her scripts.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Heche seems to fumble for an internal switch to turn on that light (you practically hear the relieved little click when she finds it). Give her time, though, and she might shine like the aurora borealis.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The fantasy this time, interestingly enough, is one that's been peddled so many times before that the threads should be bare. But somehow, "Trees" still has that new-car smell.

Jan 2, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Heche's early scenes as the top-of-the-world Marin and her initial slide into fish-out-of-water comedy in Alaska are fun to watch.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Heche is a funny proposition, strange but likable... Marin suits her well, and she's supported by a fine and mostly unfamiliar cast.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

When you build a show around a female character or a group of female characters, there's no reason they have to alternate between delusional independence and hopeless vulnerability.
