Trivia

The mortuary where the dead roommate's ashes were taken was called "Steadlawn Mortuary" an anagram of "Wasteland" - gallows humor since that was the last filmed episode and everyone on the team knew the show was about to be axed. See more »

The good die young... or get cancelled
12 July 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

I saw the first few episodes of this when it was broadcast in prime time and loved it. 20 somethings living in NYC and dealing with real issues, prejudice in the workplace, comimg out, getting past one night stands and into relationships.

As a gay man myself, I was particularly interested in Russ, a soap actor who was struggling with coming out. Also the other male principals, Dan Montgomery Jr and Brad Rowe are easy on the eye and were both very cool about having a good friend who's gay.

This series had a LOT of promise and I was upset to see it end. I recently caught the episodes that I missed on Cable and I would recommend it to others.
