heart cross romance
7 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Emotionally distressed Isabel Lukens (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) is alone in Rome. Fellow American Leo Roth (David Conrad) sees her LA Clippers cap and they strike up a Roman holidays fling. Back in the States, Isabel has to deal with boyfriend Everett who is beloved by her parents and looking to propose. She has two sisters; Jennifer with volatile poet boyfriend Dean and Karen married to Alan. Leo has his roommate Doug (Adam Goldberg) and his dysfunctional family. His sister Rhonda is a lesbian. His father Barry lives with his grandpa and younger brother Jake.

This is a beautiful looking couple. Their romance could be more magical. It has Italy but it needs more romantic epic. Everett is not that big of a villain. In fact, their relationship is probably the third or fourth most compelling of the show. Doug and Karen is the most interesting. Jake has a great one episode Romeo&Juliet epic romance with guest star Holly Marie Combs. Even Jennifer's rotating love-life is competitive with them. This is produced by those who made 'Once and Again' and 'My So-Called Life'. There are some great episodes, an appealing central couple, and lots of great side characters.
