Storyline

Emily Sanders is a successful young woman with fabulous job in publishing and great friends. She got to where she is by working hard and always followed a set of self-imposed guidelines referred to as the "Reasons", as in reasons why not to do something that could have consequences in her life. However, when Emily gets involved with a roguishly handsome, two-timing author, she realized that somewhere she took a wrong turn in her life. She now has to get back on track, and once again be heedful of the trustworthy reasons that help her navigate her way through life. Written by DesertShark25

Better to have asked... "Why?"
25 January 2006 | by (San Jose, California) – See all my reviews

Emily's Reasons Why Not:

1) Very bad premise 2) Worse writing 3) Director and writer don't seem to understand the concept of what comedy is suppose to be 3 A-Has this person EVER directed comedy before? 4) Got commitment before showing network a script 4 A-What FOOL committed to 6 episodes? 4 B-No sanity check to stop this train wreck before it began 5) Heather Graham isn't able to pull off this comedy thing 6) Rest of cast didn't seem to know what was expected of them

RESULT: Cancelled after one episode.

It would be unfair to blame this all on Heather. I'm sure she was well compensated for jumping from film to TV. I think that she just didn't have her heart in this. Of course, as bad as this was (and I think that the producers should release a "Very Special Complete Series" DVD so we can see this continue downhill) there have been worse.

The networks have lost all grip on how to produce good television and how to recognize what needs to be nurtured and what needs to never happen in the first place.

Hopefully, someone lost a job over this; we can only hope that a lesson has been learned.
