Storyline

In the east village, the twentysomething guy, Alex finally moves into this own apartment in New York City's East Village. There he finds that single life is not a walk in the park as he deals with urban life, his boring job at the copy shop, his irritating friends, his selfish sister and his crush on an unattainable goth girl. Yet, for all the troubles, life in the city is still worth it. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

One of MTV's Better, Less Repulsive TV Shows
14 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

Well, I occasionally watched this at nights, where I live- when there was nothing better on. It's a very enjoyable television show... which- I know this might come to some as a shock- doesn't need the F word or disgusting humor to get laughs. Hear that Beavis & Butthead and all you South Park kids?! Shame it didn't win as much popularity as the other two mentioned. Likable-humorous characters, strange but unique animating style, plus good humorous look at The Big Apple. One of the better adult-intended animated TV shows out there.
