    The show has acting and comedic talents.... The only problem? Too many people won’t “get” it. For those who do, however, it will be love at first sight.

    It’s a live-action comedy that often moves and thinks like a cartoon, to great effect.

    If you haven’t figured this out yet, Man Seeking Woman is plenty weird. But it’s also wild, wily, and, depending on your taste for high-risk jokes that don’t always fly, wonderful.

    Man Seeking Woman will be a love it/hate it proposition. It's worth a date to decide. [16 Jan 2015, p.70]

    There’s no question that Man Seeking Woman is not run-of-the-mill entertainment, but whether its weirdness will appeal or repel will depend largely on the openness of viewers to new, strange TV experiences.

    When you do sketch-style comedy, though, you’re only as good as your next idea, and in two subsequent episodes the situations aren’t as distinctive. Jay Baruchel gives Josh an appealing blend of desperation, gallantry and squirming calculation. He’s carrying all the weight, though: The cast includes Eric Andre as Josh’s pick-up-artist best friend, Britt Lower as his sister and Maya Erskine as his ex, but none of their characters are more than foils.

    The issue is mostly that the absurdist scenarios just fall flat, visually--contrary to the way they often soar on, say, “Inside Amy Schumer.”

    Baruchel is Josh Greenburg, a lonely 20-something who just got dumped by his girlfriend of 6 years. The show chronicles his journey to find love, in a wacky and funny form. In the pilot, Josh goes on a date with an actual troll, meets his ex-gf's new boyfriend Adolf Hitler, and wins a prestigious award for asking a random girl out on a date. It is as ridiculous as it sounds and it all is very funny.

    Man Seeking Woman is a perfect vehicle for its star Jay Baruchel and is highly recommended.

    If this were a regular sitcom about a man trying to find a woman after a break-up from a long term relationship, I wouldn’t even care to watchIf this were a regular sitcom about a man trying to find a woman after a break-up from a long term relationship, I wouldn’t even care to watch it. But it had a certain twist that made me watch this show in which the man’s (let’s call him Josh as he is the main character) first blind date after his break-up was a literal troll. Like, a bridge female troll. I am not kidding.

    That kind of concept is either a hit or a miss but the funny surrealistic humor in this show executed the concept very well done.

    I liked how this season had a plot arc in which Josh tries to move on from his now ex-girlfriend despite its non-linear timeline. Of course, the liberal surrealistic humor in this show is what makes this show so entertaining to watch.

    If you want to see something new on the rom-com sitcom genre, Man Seeking Woman is the show to watch!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I must admit the first episode I wasn't feeling the show the troll blind date and the ex girlfriend new boyfriend being hitler I could take it or leave the show without watching another episode with the the extra extremes being part of the humor. But after watching the second episode the extreme exaggerations were on point just hilarious moment after another. This show isnt for those who dont like the envelope being pushed . The exorcism of the old gf possessions was hilarious than getting the date advice from national defense was off the chain. When the general said send Jk text I nearly fell off the couch. Worth checking out if looking for some a different take on relationship comedy rel com or whatever. Expand
