What is Gary Unmarried About? – Plot
The series is centered around the life of Gary Brooks and begins three months after he and his ex-wife, Allison Brooks, officially divorce. Gary owns a house painting business and bought his own place after his divorce. Now his life revolves around trying to move on from his marriage and get back out into the dating scene while constantly having to deal with his ex-wife because they have two teenagers together. For these reasons, he has difficulty adjusting to life without Allison, and matters are not helped by his unfriendly relationship with Allison. Despite their acrimonious relationship and constant flinging of cracks at each other, Gary and Allison affectionately make up at the end of most of their conflicts, as the two seem to have a soft spot for each other underneath all their hostility.
Their teenagers are sent back and forth between them so as to spend time with each parent. Their teenagers are Tom, a brash 14-year-old, who’s already had a girl in his bedroom (though at the advice of his father), has tried drinking beer, spoken to Gary as if he’s Gary’s father, and has even spoken to Vanessa in a flirtatious manner; and Louise, their precocious daughter, who plays the cello, keeps photos of Gandhi, Al Gore and Che Guevara on her bedroom walls, and watches C-SPAN. Allison considers Gary to be irresponsible in his parenting while Gary considers Allison to be boring in her parenting; this is shown whenever they pick up their teens from the other’s house. In the pilot episode, Gary starts dating a young divorcee mom, Vanessa Flood, while Allison reveals that she’s engaged to their former marriage counselor, Dr. Walter Krandall. Krandall is no longer Tom begins a romance of his own when he invites a girl over for the first time. The three couples move forward uncertainly (except Louise, who loves Al Gore). Vanessa, however, broke up with Gary after a short-lived relationship because of his inability to quit worrying about Allison.
