Sam is a female detective with the NYPD. Vandy is a bartender and struggling musician. Russell is a closeted soap opera actor afraid of being outed. Ty is Russell's former college roommate who once had a relationship with Dawnie, a 27 year old virgin currently in graduate school. Jesse is Dawnie's friend who works as a publicist. These six young lives interact and struggle with coming-of-age in New York City shortly after college. Written by Phil Fernando

I love this show, please help bring it back!!!!
22 November 1999 | by (Norwalk, CT(unfortunately)) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love this show. I'm not sure if it'll be coming back, but I wish I had the three episodes that aired on tape.

It's a show that those of us who are in our 20's or right out of college can absolutely relate to. It's about finding your way and trying to discover what you want to do. Maybe not as a permanent career, but to get over the awkwardness over being outta school and not yet considering yourself a "grown-up." If you were to sit down and watch it, you would probably find yourself relating to each character in a little way. Dawnie was the over-analytical one who is waiting for the right time to lose her virginity; Sam the one who tries to lose her Southern accent to move forward; Ty was the one true love of Dawnie's life who is just trying to make ends meet; Vandy is the sweet, lovable musician who is barely scraping by; Jesse is the tough-as-nails career woman who is afraid of being vulnerable; Russell is the guy who's afraid of being outed of his personal life and his role as hunk-du-jour on a soap opera. Each character is wonderfully vulnerable, miserable, despicable and lovable at the same time.
