Review: There is a certain formula to sitcom television shows.  The 1990s were the last real era of the situation comedy before reality tv and fake-improv shows like 'the Office' took over.  A few more traditional sitcoms do remain over at CBS, like 'How I Met Your Mother' and 'Two and a Half Men'.  These shows are joined now by the new Gary UnMarried.

This is a fairly traditional concept..its an overweight guy with attractive women in his life.  You've seen this model on shows like the 'King of Queens'.  The twist here is that we are following a divorced father and watching him fumble his way through newly single life.

The show is overall pretty funny.  Its a decent watch.  The second season is going strong, so this is a nice way to get caught up.  There are quite a few recurring characters and running gags that originate from season one.  If you're into the traditional sitcom, this show is a nice throwback for you.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
