Only The Good Die Young., 7 May 2004

It's been eight years and I am still aching over the loss of "Lush Life." Wonderful characters, struggling urbanites getting by and sharing a cramped but colorful studio apartment in the city. Hysterically funny situations. "Lush Life" was canceled after the first episode, and only three episodes ever aired. I wish I taped them. Did you? Can we work out a deal? This was a truly original and hilarious show. I loved the episode where all their gay friends are trying to pose as Margot's boyfriend to ward off her ex. Or how 'bout when George fakes her own death so her paintings will sell for more money? This was way funnier and way more realistic depiction of being young and poor in the big city than "Friends" or "Sex and the City," two shows that honestly blew.
