      Previous Steve Johnson Chicago Tribune On purely the level of story, [the finale] offers a reasonably satisfying conclusion to a series that, more than most sitcoms, has been concerned with genuine emotions. Aug 22, 2019 Full Review Peter Keepnews New York Times But it's nice that ''Mad About You'' remained, to the very end, true to life. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Michele Greppi New York Post There was a time when we were mad about Mad About You. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Alan Pergament Buffalo News Clever, sad, funny, poignant, romantic and consistent with the series' seven-year, 10-Emmy-Award run, the hour passes as quickly as a good first date. Aug 22, 2019 Full Review David Zurawik Baltimore Sun Unlike Murphy Brown, which ditched the baby once the ratings started to drop, Mad About You stuck with Mabel to the bitter end. Aug 22, 2019 Full Review Filip Vukcevic IGN Movies What made Mad About You work is that the comedy doesn't drive the marriage; rather, the marriage drives the comedy. 8/10 Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Audience Member I truly enjoyed this show. Just finished a binge watch of all the episodes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent in many fun ways! Love the guest casting like Mel Brooks as Uncle Phil. This ensemble works wonderfully with each other. They portray family/friend life so goofily. Look, these days, it's so difficult to find humor in current events. Watching Mad About You is a great escape. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Next Post a review
