All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

It might be one of the happiest shows on television, and I continue to be grateful for that.

While the big twist presents as either shocking or predictable given your outlook, the writers still have plenty of time to write through this one, and the episode getting there was more than heartwarming enough to forgive it.

Season seven is an unfortunate step back, and you can't help but feel that time is running out on the series.

There were laughs, there was momentum and there were many reasons given to stay tuned for the rest of the year to see how everything is going to turn out.

September 16, 2013 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

We return from a mixed bag of a season with a mixed bag of a premiere, and a slightly better second episode.

Something tells me the twists upon twists, the dramatic reveals, the surface mystery connected to the flash-forward wedding and of course to the eternally-delayed titular mother, are not really meant to be enough for us. The trick will continue to unfold.

I didn't really like this season even if it has one or two decent episodes and a few laughs.
