I miss and think about this show often
13 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best written comedy shows ever on TV but it was not allowed to develop it's audience. It wasn't a Seinfeld wannabe - it was a West Coast original. And maybe that was the problem. The humor was definitely West Coast. As a LA native living in Georgia, this show was like a life line. Acting, writing, humor was sharp and funny. Jennifer Grey as herself was hilarious with that little tinge of sadness for what happens in LA to even talented people. The whole cast worked so well together with that Los Angeles laid back ease, but with a little self deprecating humor all native and long time Californians have. As for the title - a previous poster got it wrong. I still say "It's like, you know", when there's just nothing more you can say. It's a California thing. And, now that I'm in the south, to those that didn't get the humor of this show, I say "Well, there you go".
