'Marry Me' Review: Say 'Yes!' to this Adorable New Comedy
By Leanne Aguilera
Every TV fan knows that Fall is the most overwhelming season of the year. Why? One very simple reason: Too many shows and too little time. So we at ETonline are reviewing each and every one of the new fall TV shows to bring you our reviews on the good, the bad, the adorable and the just plain horrible.
Show: Marry Me
When It Airs: Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
The Biggest Stars: From David Caspe, the creator of the short-lived yet beloved series Happy Endings, comes the romantic comedy Marry Me. Filling the soon-to-be bride and groom roles are Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) and Ken Marino (Eastbound and Down and Party Down), along with Scandal's Dan Bucatinsky, 21 & Over's Sarah Wright and SNL alum Tim Meadows.
Here's What You Need to Know: Marry Me centers on long-time couple Annie (Wilson) and Jake (Marino) and their bumpy journey to the alter after not one, but two proposal disasters. Not only are the characters instantaneously likeable, but this is one of the only new comedies this fall that caused us to rush to our TV's and immediately set up a season pass on the DVR.
The best part of Marry Me is that the series is reminiscent of Happy Endings signature quirky vibe, without feeling like an over-the-top Year-of-Penny spinoff. However, for those of you who do desperately miss our sensational sixsome, you can take comfort in the fact that we will be getting a mini Happy Endings crossover in Marry Me's Halloween episode. That's right! Derrick (Stephen Guario) will be bringing all the D-R-A-M-A to the new series later this season, and rumor has it, he's close friends with both the Marry Me and Happy Endings groups.
If You Like… the fast-paced dialogue of Gilmore Girls and love to re-watch episodes of Happy Endings and reminisce on the a-mah-zing glory days of TV's past, then Marry Me will help fill the Penny Hartz-sized hole in your life.
