    "Love Monkey" may well be the smartest and most innovative network comedy-drama in many a year.

    It's sexy, funny, hip and heartfelt.
  3. "Love Monkey" manages in one hour to be both funny and endearing, a more option-rich version of "Ed."

    Familiar as it all sounds, series creator Michael Rauch plucks most of the right chords.
  5. For all the amiability of the cast, few of their interactions feel natural. [27 Jan 2006, p.73]

    Without its classic, punk, and alternative allusions, the New York romantic comedy would be just another ''Sex and the City" with dudes, another ''Jake in Progress" or ''Four Kings." But with its musical knowing, ''Love Monkey" comes off more like a small-screen ''High Fidelity."
  7. 10
    Another failed attempt to use rock as the backdrop for an insipid sitcom.
