Calling it Quirky Doesn't Make it So!
20 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Listed all over as a "quirky" comedy, the writers must have hemorrhoids after the strain of forcing "quirkiness" without creativity, intelligence or any semblance of real humor.

The device of a comet smashing the moon into three parts is used to let all the inhabitants of this small town "live for today." With no hope for living beyond a few days, these people do not do what we would expect…there is no mass lawlessness or genuine loosening of inhibitions. Children still attend school; people still sue each other over egress through property lines; and people still buy houses.

The writers disrespect the audience with every line, stretching credibility beyond stupidity. What we have is a dozen or more characters who all attempt to scream quirky, charming, and innocently funny. Notice the word, "attempt." It fails.

Where is the real creativity shown by the writers of Nip/Tuck, Twin Peaks, Desperate Housewives, Dead Like Me, Eureka, Gilmore Girls, etc.? There is none of the humor or intelligence seen in these other series. Saying something is quirky does not make it interesting.

I expected so much more from the show's promise. For some reason, I have sat through episodes with the HOPE that this could become my new guilty pleasure. Despite an obvious low-budget effort, it doesn't even achieve qualities of campiness. It has all of the panache of an after-school special. And even though it shows on ABC Family, one can't even blame an effort to be family-friendly on the failure. Even themes of bedhopping. Witchcraft, arson, voyeurism and statutory rape raise all the interest of cottage cheese.

Please drink plenty of coffee before sitting through an episode. I've never taken the time to write or pan any show before, but I feel as if I've been set up and can never get back the several hours I've spent watching this show. Without prior expectations, I'd give it a C-, but after raising my hopes, it rates a D-.
