Vacuous Yuppie Angst....
23 June 2003 | by (Moncton, N.B. Canada) – See all my reviews

Soap opera dressed up as comedy-drama. A crashing bore, and crushing disappointment, after Sally Phillips' hilarious 'Smack The Pony' sketch series. Avoid, unless you _enjoy_ watching bland 30-somethings wrestle with their extremely trivial lives.
