      Love Monkey — Season 1

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Tom Cavanagh and Judy Greer mount an irresistible charm offensive in Love Monkey, a jaunty series that aims for chic but works best when it accepts that it's hip to be square.

      Previous James Poniewozik TIME Magazine "Love" is better in theory than in practice. Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Robert Bianco USA Today Rather than push Cavanagh at you, it seems content to let you discover him on your own. 3/4 Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Sid Smith Chicago Tribune Love Monkey brightly apes the sassy cynicism and carefree believability of an independent movie. And in style, pacing, crisp execution and even subject matter, it echoes Cameron Crowe's Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous. Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Stephen Kelly PopMatters Love Monkey is an anomaly, an intelligent, well-written dramedy for adults about adults, even if some of the chords it hits are in a minor key. Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Robert Abele L.A. Weekly Love Monkey creator Michael Rauch keeps facile wisdom to a bare minimum, and a certain urban energy level turned up. He was also smart enough to cast the ultra-groovy Judy Greer. Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Love Monkey is a smart, character-driven show, the kind that's totally out-of-sync with CBS's procedural crime dramas. Fans of quality drama, take note: Swing with this "Monkey" while you can. Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews Next
