Review this tv show
Jul 19, 2012Watched a couple of episodes and it was torture, a complete How I met Your Mother rip-off. The acting is so poor and the actors are so awkward and lame that they aren't even remotely funny. When they talk they change subject and mood in seconds and they strive to make the viewers laugh at their pathetic jokes.
Awards & Rankings
Seeking to replicate the success of sweet-n'-sour sitcoms like How I Met Your Mother, Will and Grace, and the BBC's Gavin and Stacey, Mad Love never seems invested in its main characters, and so we, as viewers, are absolved of any investment as well.
What this comedy has is the charm of its brash comic energy. That it's an energy located mostly in a single character, and not the main one either--officially, anyway-makes little difference.
Mad Love [is] a relationship sitcom with real chemistry. [21 Feb 2011, p.41]
