Mad About You

Mad About You

Having earned a reputation as one of television's most well-written, funny and thoughtful sitcoms, Mad About You continues the tales of Paul and Jamie Buchman (Paul Reiser, Academy Award-winner Helen Hunt) trying their best in a very complicated world to be in love, to be married...and now to have a family. While the series still focuses on the Buchman couple, the birth of baby daughter Mabel in a highly-rated, much-acclaimed episode has caused Paul and Jamie to learn new things about themselves.

Mad About You has long succeeded in relating the pinnacles, plateaus and pitfalls of marriage, effectively portraying a couple madly in love, while they experience the urbane, the inane, the mundane, and the profound. Their foibles delight viewers as they watch -- and relate to -- the couple buying a sofa, celebrating an unwanted birthday, discovering an aphrodisiac, finding a lost wedding ring, arbitrating meddling parents, falling apart and staying together. The series also has seen Paul and Jamie reflecting back and looking forward to the very real events of meeting for the first time, getting engaged, preparing for a wedding, experiencing the threat of separation, making up, being pregnant, having a baby, and now raising a family.

The show has been honored with one Golden Globe Award, a Peabody Award, a Genesis Award, five Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series, and was chosen Best Quality Comedy by the Viewers for Quality Television.
