Storyline

Romantic and family serio-comic drama series about two American strangers in their twenties who meet and fall in love in Italy, and return home, get to know each other's families and take on new challenges in their lives...as do their friends and families. Of all the other Herskowitz and Zwick television series, this is the one closest in spirit and appeal to Once and Again, their next major television project. Written by Todd Mason

TWENTY-SOMETHING...and sadly overlooked.
22 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a charming series, and probably from ABC's perspective producers Zwick and Herskowitz's "second strike" after the short run of their MY SO-CALLED LIFE, and before the undersupported but three-season run of ONCE AND AGAIN. THIRTYSOMETHING, their briefly hit series from several seasons previously, had been a trendsetter, if a bit precious to my taste; MY/LIFE, their followup dealing with teens, had been an improvement, and surely has reverberated with its audience in a way few series have; RELATIVITY, dealing primarily with a couple in their twenties and their families, friends, and colleagues, was better yet, and deserved much more support from network and audience alike. (ONCE AND AGAIN, the FORTYSOMETHING show which followed, was even better, as far as I'm concerned, but that doesn't diminish the excellent quality of this neglected series.) Yes, let's have those DVDs!
