Storyline

This sitcom in named after two of the six main characters, each with a name rather suggesting the other gender: Jaqueline 'Jack' and David 'Jill' Jillefski, who gradually realize they were in love at first sight. The other main characters are brilliant but insecure med student Barto, philosopher-barman Mikey, a natural womanizer who cultivates immaturity and disarming charm, Broadway-actress-dancer Audrey, who becomes Barto's girl, and Elisa Cronkite, Jack's colleague at the TV station.

A feel good, happy show that puts me in a good mood.
18 October 2003 | by (Malta) – See all my reviews

I absolutely LOVE this show. I only stumbled upon it about a month ago and I must have watched about 20 episodes or more because it is on every day here in Malta. I enjoy all the cast. I identify with alot of the script especially with Sara Poulson's. I find I have alot in common with Jack (especially the way she likes to be in control). I find the script very touching and true to life alot of the time. There was one particular episode where I actually found myself writing some of the script down because of how astute the 'moral of the story' was.

Jack and Jill make a really cute couple. (Ivan Sergei is totally cute and knows it of course!) The whole New York way of life just really gives me good all over feeling and puts me on a high ... doing the laundry on the weekends, hanging out with the gals, flat sharing ...there's a happiness about it that is contagious and makes me smile.

When I switched on the TV yesterday and noticed it was not showing I was positively upset - It felt like a big part of my day was missing. I would really look forward to drving home from work knowing I was going to watch it. I know it sounds quite pathetic but I truly had grown accustomed to the show and would get all ready for it, cup of tea in hand at 8pm everyday. I hope the scriptwriter comes up many more shows - at least another season's worth. There's lots more that could be said and done yet...
