News & Interviews for Mary + Jane: Season 1
The relationship at the center of all the action is missing an important element: chemistry. Rothe and Durwood are likable as Paige and Jordan, but they don't fit together organically as best friends.
Mary + Jane is not High Maintenance and it's not Broad City. At its best it's got something of the charm of a Pineapple Express mixed with that of a stoner-baiting Taco Bell commercial. At its worst it's a lifeless, flat buddy comedy.
The endless pot-laced references get a little tired, but some of show's best moments are those that poke fun at the ever-changing (and often outlandish) trends that are part of the Los Angeles scene.
Mary + Jane struggles to balance the strangeness of Broad City with the somber truth of Girls, and it leads to some tonal issues, but at its funniest this is a noteworthy, endearing, female-centric comedy with high potential.
