    MG is wonderfully absurd and the supporting cast is satisfyingly straight-faced. [21 Mar 2008, p.53]

    ABC's latest single-camera comedy is utterly relatable. Even better, it's filled with the same warm yet witty, always smart and eccentric vibe as previous misfit-student faves "Square Pegs," "Popular" and "Malcolm in the Middle."

    This new comedy, which stars the wildly talented Judy Greer, is terrific.
  4. For viewers willing to give themselves over to whimsy and let go of any expectation that they're watching characters who resemble real-life human beings, this comedy has its minor charms.

    Miss/Guided is silly but sweet and would be more embraceable if it would drop the misguided (sorry) gimmick of having everyone deliver jokes right into the camera.

    It's easy to root for the very watchable Greer, both as the underdog and as a charming actress who deserves a better script.

    Beyond Greer's latter-day Mary Tyler Moore shtick, there's not a note or character that doesn't feel warmed over.

    I wasn't too sure about this show but then i found myself running to my Tivo at the end of the day to make sure it had been recorded. I love all the celeb cameos and relating to the main character. I really hope it returns because i miss it already. Expand

    Great and much needed comedy for ABC. Very funny -great casting especially Judy Greer and Chris Parnell. Very good. suggest they move show to any night but Monday or Thursday as CBS has Monday locked up for sitcom fans and NBC does the same on Thursdays. Expand

    Silly and funny and really brings back memories of high school. Everyone in high school was either an outcast, or felt like an outcast, or knew someone who was an outcast. The best part is that Greer keeps smiling despite anything embarassing that happens to her. (Remember the column, "Was My Face Red" from Young Miss magazine?) It's good to have a friend who is always upbeat, no matter what, especially for those of us who are perpetual complainers. Expand

    Based on the episode I watched tonight, Judy Greer is terrific in the lead but the show needs to be filled out in the laugh department and the side characters are not well defined. With the NBC Thursday night comedy line-up returning, I would like to stick-it-out but that will be impossible. Expand

    I think this show has a lot of promise based on Judy Greer's performance. She is consistently cute and funny and if the rest of the cast can match her verve, MG could be a winner. Expand

    There has got to be something seriously wrong with me. 'generally favorable reviews'? I love Greer and usually find her very funny but.....well I don't usually post negative reviews but.......sorry. Expand
