Trivia

Lisa also remembered that there was another moment when she argued with Michael. She thought that it wasn't important Valerie to touch the back of Mark's hair in the end of the Palm Springs episode. Michael insisted her to do it because it was a very important moment for the character. During the Writers Guild Foundation interview she agreed that she couldn't be more wrong because it turned to be everyone's favorite moment. See more »

Dead on...
18 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is brilliant and Lisa Kudrow is amazing in it. If you've ever lived in LA, you already know this is closer to reality than any of the shows it satirizes.

Comparisons to the BBC version of "The Office" are inevitable. This show is probably as good as that critical darling, and it might be even better.

I've heard that it hasn't been renewed, which is a shame, as it's certainly much smarter than Darren Starr's other HBO hit, the long-running "Sex and the City.

Kudos to HBO and all involved for taking a chance on this risky and smart and painfully funny show.
