I suppose this is the story of the beauty and brutality of a long-term marriage as seen through the eyes of a writer who aspires to make art, but makes his living writing popcorn movies. Someone who wants to be a good man, but finds himself contemplating many crimes. Someone who is guilty of the crime of being human. Someone whose life is the only movie he can't rewrite. Well, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I've been an Eric Stoltz fan dating back to Fast Times and The Wild Life, so it's very gratifying to see him in this extremely adult show playing such an extremely adult part. Out of Order is going to be hugely popular, I predict
extraordinarily insightful and it's got balls. I was hooked 3 minutes into the opening episode, maybe earlier.
All the characters are well-developed, no caricatures here, and the relationships felt real to me, particularly the one between Mark and Danni, and Stoltz' trying-to-masturbate-but-continually-being-interrupted sequence was priceless. This show exists on the fine line of being able to be funny although not at the expense of its characters but rather BECAUSE of its characters, who are allowed to show their inner lives - Stoltz' Mark in particular, and it feels right, of course, because he's a writer, and we do have highly developed inner lives if nothing else. To the real-life writing team who brought this show to fruition, I say keep up the great work. We'll be watching.
