Loved It
6 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm crossing my fingers for this one. It was fun and let's face it, something we've never seen on TV before. It's almost a throw back to the nighttime soaps of the 80's like Knots Landing and it shows us the side of people that we all knew existed and that up until now, network TV wouldn't air. It's unapologetic and I actually cared about a couple of the characters. It's great to see Josh Hopkins (Ally McBeal, Cold Case, Brothers and Sisters) and Grant Show (Melrose Place, Six Feet Under, Dirt) back on TV. Joined with Miriam Shor (Headwig and the Angry Inch), Molly Parker (Deadwood), Lana Parrilla (Spin City, 24, Lost) and Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean), the show has a well rounded and entertaining cast. Congrats to Mike and Alan, great show and I hope it makes it.
