All coffee cups in the series are empty. This is clear whenever one character passes a cup to another and the sound of the character's hand making contact with the cup is amplified inside the empty cup. See more »
I have a confession to make: I didn't like you very much at first. You were just this annoying little blob.

duchovny comes across very authentic as a writer in his midlife crisis. divorced and unhappy the daughter suffers the most under the separation. for my part it wonder if the classification as a comedy is right... it's very sarcastic... there's some scenes that are funny but most of the time it's more a drama than comedy...
the series has a lot of potential and it's not a 100% clear where it might take us if it gets picked up. let's hope showtime has the guts to give duchovny a chance to show of his talent. for my part i loved his performance and that it would be good thing to have him back on a TV series.
