  • Natural, funny and brimming with romantic chemistry. [21 Sep 1992] show more

  • It doesn't matter much that there's an assembly-line feel to these drop-in characters. The focus is on Reiser and Hunt, who make a merrily dysfunctional couple. [23 Sep 1992] show more

  • What's missing in Mad About You is... madness. Unlike Seinfeld, it lacks the loopy quality — an affinity for the absurd — that regularly enables Jerry and his wacky pals to transcend the mundane. Already, a pattern is emerging in Mad: The best episodes are the ones in which Paul's whining finickiness annoys not only us viewers but Jamie as well. show more
