Storyline

Four thirty-something New Yorkers with various eating disorders lean on one another for support in this dark and poignant comedy that chronicles their romantic and personal lives. Sam is a neurotic commitment-phobic stock broker recovering from compulsive overeating; Adam is a bulimic NYPD cop; Dan, who works as a writer, is an overweight compulsive-eater; and Billie is an anorexic/bulimic and aspiring singer/songwriter.

Gave it a chance and ... no
13 September 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a program I was rooting for.

Why? Because eating disorders are serious business and we are all effected by them in one way or another or know of someone who is - whether is chasing down that "last five pounds" or trying to dump 200. This IS all because we are all trying to fit into a media programmed perfection first, rather than health second.

I know that television situation (and dark) comedies have helped America face many serious problems and tolerances such as racism, homosexuality, bigotry, the elderly and even weight. "All In the Family" this ain't.

I'm not getting the biting satire I was led to believe this would be. After a few episodes, at some points, it seems darned mean-spirited towards its characters. Don't get me wrong, I love dark comedies the most, and this isn't on that level to me at all. It's not smart, edgy or sexy.

I can say ... that it points out the depths many go through for it's subject matter, but I'm not laughing at the way it is portrayed - or feeling sympathetic for any of the characters.

A thumbs down - so far - for me with a bit of an open mind wish for a re-tooling if it gets to another season.
