Man Seeking Woman Season 3 Episode 7 Review: “Bagel”

Man Seeking Woman has been a show about progression, and more specifically the long term growth of a man who wants nothing more to find a woman who loves him and he can spend his life with. The show has been one of the most unique takes on the romance and comedy genres but really stays down to Earth and nails each topic it tries to cover related to relationships. Season three has shown a big leap for Josh, who has suffered some of the most awkward dates and some of the most heartbreaking ends to a relationship ever, but the truth is that these stories have landed with such an impact because they are so honest and real. Last week, "Pad Thai," revealed that Josh and Lucy have been together for over a year now, which is a huge positive step for their relationship and is the calmest relationship that Josh has been in since the show’s inception; however, Josh is a creature of habit (for the most part), so naturally, his next idea is to propose.

Man Seeking Woman Season 3 Episode 6 Review: “Pad Thai”

Throughout the third season of Man Seeking Woman, the show continues to utilize it’s initial premise but adapts it to explore the struggle and speed bumps Josh faces in a serious relationship. It’s been a super refreshing change thus far and has allowed the show to explore relevant topics with fun moments. Yet, with subtle surprise, this week’s "Pad Thai" announces that Josh and Lucy have officially been together for a year, which is a really big deal. In the past, Josh has always gotten in his own way and killed some promising relationships and so far with Lucy, it seems like the real deal. Every situation that the couple has faced, they’ve been able to calmly talk out and work through, but "Pad Thai," explores how people deal with feeling bored and resisting something that seems more exciting at face value.

Man Seeking Woman Season 3 Episode 5 Review: “Shrimp”

Through season 3 of Man Seeking Woman, Josh has been in completely unfamiliar territory when it comes to his relationship with Lucy. Although the show has seen Josh cycle through various girlfriend types in the past seasons, Lucy is the only legitimate long-term relationship that the character has been involved with that has a legitimate, positive outlook. As mentioned in previous reviews, a lot of the struggle for Josh and Lucy is going to be finding out the best balance that works for them. Serious relationships become complicated pretty quickly, but if couples can make it through some tough times or situations, it will only make them stronger and more comfortable in the long-run. One of the biggest adjustments with a serious relationship is the balance of schedules. It gets really tough when one of the people has more going on than the other, especially with topics like work. "Shrimp," takes a look at how Josh handles tagging along to all of Lucy’s work events and continues to expand on different areas where the couple needs to get on the same page. "Shrimp" becomes almost the reverse of last week’s episode, "Popcorn," where one member of the relationship feels forgotten and alone when they shouldn’t be. While viewers experienced what it was like for Lucy to feel insecure and distant from Josh as he tried to buddy up with her parents, now Josh finds himself in the same type of a position. Lucy’s new job has taken off and she is finally getting to do what she loves with success. It’s a new and exciting world for her, and one that she really wants to make an impression in. It’s completely understandable as she adjusts to having a new job that requires the majority of her attention; but with that is going to come some sacrifice. In this case, it is the amount of attention she can give Josh. READ MORE...

Man Seeking Woman Season 3 Episode 4: “Popcorn”

The reason Man Seeking Woman is such a critically underrated show is because of how accurate it continues to be on a weekly basis. The show has such a simple premise but fails to get old because it accurately handles tough situations and keeps the ideas fun by twisting in the surreal but comparable variables. Clever is really the best way to describe Man Seeking Woman, because it hits the nail on the head when it comes to relationships; Josh has had an extremely tough journey since season one, but the character has truly grown and learned throughout the series. There have definitely been a few missteps and backtracks, but overall, this show always recognizes the perfect angle to tackle the subject it wants to cover. What else helps is the show continues to keep a fun-loving attitude and has the ability to communicate to viewers that, in most situations, there are actually two sides to every story. "Popcorn," tackles that aspect very nicely by sending Josh and Lucy on a journey to her parent’s house, so Josh can officially meet them. Of course in this situation, Josh is going to be wanting to make a positive lasting impression on Lucy’s parents because he cares about her so much that he wants their approval. While the majority of people will always say something like, "it doesn’t matter if they like you, because I like you," it doesn’t match up to the importance of earning the respect of parents. Yet, this is where Man Seeking Woman excels, because it’s very easy for someone in Josh’s position to be solely focused on leaving that impression and ignore when the parents are being rude and mean to their daughter.

Man Seeking Woman Season 3 Episode 3 Review: “Horse”

In the season 3 premiere, Man Seeking Woman delivered "Futon," an episode about what happens when a new boyfriend tries to infiltrate a girl’s group of friends. This week, "Horse," flips that scenario around, and shows how it is just as rough for a girl to try and get closer with her boyfriend’s closest friends. While in some aspects, the episodes immediately feels a little repetitive in comparison to the premiere, but Man Seeking Woman just nails all of the small differences between very similar situations. Mike is a very different animal compared to Lucy’s friends, he’s been by Josh’s side through everything the viewers have seen, and so far he hasn’t taken to Josh having a girlfriend well. "Horse," is no different and right from the start Mike doesn’t even acknowledge Lucy’s presence. He is surprised she is still around and is neglecting to take Josh’s relationship seriously. It’s funny because while Lucy’s friends were brutally honest with her about how they felt about Josh, whereas Mike refuses to address the situation, assuming it will run it’s course. It’s an interesting parallel only because it immediately reveals that this episode won’t be a retread of "Futon." READ MORE...

Man Seeking Woman Season 3 Episode 2 Review: “Ranch”

One thing Man Seeking Woman always does nicely is fully think through the episode and story they want to tell during it. The show does a phenomenal job of balancing it’s weekly plots as well as using every opportunity it has to build up a serialized season long story as well. Last week’s episode, "Ranch," takes a look at what it feels like when your parents discover you have a new partner and want to meet them,which can become overly extreme in cases like Josh’s when his parents aren’t used to seeing him with anyone. Man Seeking Woman always nails the little things within it’s episodes; all of the tiny comedic details that go into their personifications never fail to be completely accurate. "Ranch" continues to highlight the time and effort that gets put into this show’s writing with ideas like having Tom, the step-dad be the undercover bruiser for the mom who seemingly comes off like a loan-shark or mob boss. They never fail to utilize all of their characters, even if it’s in minor ways, as long as the idea makes sense in accordance with the plot. Man Seeking Woman really comes together through all of the small details placed within each episode, and even when "Ranch," brings Tom back at the end, as the old farmer preparing to put down his partner, it just works extremely well and helps to elevate the show from good to great.

Man Seeking Woman Season 3 Episode 1 Review: “Futon”

Returning for it’s third season, Man Seeking Woman wastes no time in establishing that this season would start out different from the past two. The show has always had a very unique feel to it that perfectly analyzed Josh’s struggle to find a girl with some great analyzation into what it’s like to date in modern day. A lot of the basis for the show’s season long stories have focused on Josh rushing into things the minute a girl likes him, only to show why patience is such a virtue, especially when it comes to relationships. Season three chooses to start Man Seeking Woman off in a way viewers have never seen before, Josh is already in a relationship, which is an interesting sign. READ MORE...

Man Seeking Woman Season 2 Episode 3 Review: “Scythe”

Man Seeking Woman has returned strong with its first two episodes of the season, displaying great new situations to put a wrench in Josh’s love life. Lat night’s episode, "Scythe," had a small feeling of repetitiveness to it, but expanded on old ideas to deliver a pretty strong episode. At this point, I never know what to expect from the show because there are a lot of different topics that could be covered, but I want progression more than anything. I want to see Josh’s character grow into a strong self-confident person, so it’s good to see him get into similar scenarios from his past only to show he’s grown stronger. READ MORE...

Man Seeking Woman Season 2 Episode 1 Review: “Wings”

Man Seeking Woman returns for its second season after a bizarre and fun previous year. The show ended pretty absurdly and has decided to just move onto what comes next rather than acknowledge anything of the past, which is a great decision. This show definitely shows seasonal story progression, but is more about the fun ways they can analyze aspects of a relationship from episode to episode. Man Seeking Woman really did a great job with its first season and portrayed the different parts of a relationship near perfectly while come up with fantastic analogies for the different types of situations that arise. This season kicks off no differently with a great take on trying to force yourself into a girl’s life after giving up everything for her, but this normally doesn’t have a good end result. READ MORE...
