Storyline

Caroline Duffy is a successful cartoonist living in Manhattan whose comic strip "Caroline in the City" has become a huge hit. The strip is based on her own life, and the people in it - her occasional boyfriend Del and her best friend Annie. Aside from her career, however, Caroline's life is a mess, as is proven when she throws fruit out the window onto the street in a pathetic attempt to meet men.

excellent series funny and witty
11 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i only ever watched the 1st series of CitC on TV in the UK but i remembered how much i liked it. So when the 1st series came out on DVD for a very reasonable £4.95 GBP i snapped it up & now have bought the lot. The characters of Del and Richard are especially honest. I like especially the vain and superficial Del, and i can see a lot of myself in the character of the grumpy and acerbic Richard (probably why i like it). The character of Annie is a bit of a caricature but what really makes her character for me is the cynical antagonism between herself and Richard. Charlie is superbly played and while the slow delivery of his lines is sometimes annoying, Charlie's daftness offers an off-the-wall perspective on what's going on. Caroline is the fulcrum around which this mad world revolves. It is a sitcom that makes me laugh out loud (not many do). The frustrated love between Richard and Caroline gives the series pathos and another twist of realism, since many of us have experienced that. The plot is a little daft but that really doesn't matter, it's the characters i watch it for.
