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>

Yet Another Show Falls Prey to MTV Idiocy
26 July 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Downtown is the story of nerdy, toy-boy Alex, and his adventures while living in his first apartment in downtown New York. While having a rather unexciting job in a copy store, his life is frequently made more exciting by his wild partying sister Chaka, who often takes advantage of Alex's apartment to crash after clubbing. Also wandering in and out of his life is his despondent best friend Jen, his dream goth-girl Serena, disgusting ladies-man Goat, and Chaka's squad of high school friends - dreamy Mecca, tagger Matt, and wannabe Casanova Fruity.

A truly one-of-a-kind show, Downtown has been overlooked and under-appreciated since it's creation. As usual, MTV cancelled one of it's best shows after only one season, so it has sadly faded into obscurity. I'd advise you to grab any opportunities to see this show that come up.
