Trivia

Michael Patrick King stated that after making a second season of the show after nine years since the first, one of the freakiest thing was that they could get back the real house used as filming location to Valerie's. See more »

Quotes

Valerie Cherish: Instead of the barbeque line I could say, "If I let you have the puppies I'll have to let weird old Mr. Schmidt have a *SATAN* flag!" See, that's good, because EVERYBODY hates Satan!

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.
