After a fortune-teller tells Bella she'll die alone unless she finds and reconquers the right man among her exes within the year, she gradually works trough the fairly long list. Bella's neighbors, confidants and virtual house-mates, 'Augie' Augustine and Cyrus, as well as her kid sister Daphne, her fiancé Marty as well as their dad, Navy veteran Jimmy, all try to advise and assess the recycled candidates. Those include veterinarian Elliott, her last ex with whom she shares custody over dog Rufus. Written by
Just read in Studio Briefing they're canceling Ex-List. What a shame. IMO, it has some of the sharpest writing and delivery on air.
The cast is perfect for the series. Despite the moral issue of all the boyfriends, hookups and casual sex, Elizabeth Reaser is ideal in the lead. It's about time she got her shot. And her fellow cast- mates fit nicely, too; the sort of wish-fulfilling, "Friends" friends we all wish we had.
Forget how lightweight it is, they can't all be as clumsy and terminally hip as Fringe. It's a perfect Friday night show and a good lead-in for Numbers.
