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
The working title of the show was "wasteLAnd", which was suppose to take place in Los Angles (hence the capital letters) but the when it was rewritten, the story setting was changed to New York instead. See more »
I was kind of looking forward to seeing this show, so I decided to tune in to the series premiere. It definitely has potential to be watchable, maybe not in a "I'll tape it if I am not at home" kind of way, but I could watch it if I was sitting at home on a Thursday night with nothing else to do.
The characters are interesting, but must they always give the Southern character a horrible accent? If the actress can't do it, it is ok, we don't all talk like we fell off of a cotton truck. Really, we don't.
The only thing on this show that I really hated was the way the scenes changed. The quick views of NYC that transition are a way overused technique, and don't seem to quite fit this show, one that isn't fast paced like an ER for example. In the case of this show, the transitions only gave me a headache.
2 1/2 stars out of 5.. for average.
