Marry Me

NBC, Tuesdays 9/8 Central

Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) have been dating for six years, a fact she reminds him of repeatedly and aggressively. They are well-past due to get engaged, as far as Annie is concerned. However, a botched (and pretty embarrassing) proposal leaves the couple's relationship status in limbo. Despite multiple hiccups, Annie and Jake prove they're made for one another; still, that doesn't mean they're not going to drive each other nuts during the course of their life together.

Marry Me has something few freshman sitcoms seem to have these dayslaughs. Wilson, who fans will recognize from Happy Endings, infuses the right amount of mania in Annie. (Creator David Caspe worked with her on Endings and is married to her in real life, so he clearly knows her strengths.) She successfully combines physical and spoken comedy, delivering a character who, despite some cringe-worthy moments, is worth tuning in to see.

Of the new sitcoms hitting the small screen this season, Marry Me is by far one of the stronger. It doesn't stretch itself too thin working for laughs, but rather earns them genuinely. Whether Wilson and Marino will manage to endear themselves to viewers for an entire season, only time will tell; but Marry Me has more than its share of moments, making it a solid choice for some Tuesday night laughs.
