The running joke in "Secret Girlfriend" is that the camera is the view of the main character -- who never speaks. People turn to him and address him to move the plot along. The view normally cuts so we never hear his reply. Mandy, his psycho girlfriend breaks up with him regularly but then decides for one last sexual encounter so their relationship is in flux. He meets Jessica who seems perfect, but he puts off actually dating her for fear of Mandy's reaction. His two best friends, Phil and Sam, are constantly trying to create the next Internet happening and these attempts to film Backyard Wrestling or whatever is the other element of each episode's plot.

Creative and Clever
9 November 2009 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

"Secret Girlfriend" is one of the most creative ideas since "Arrested Development." Hopefully it will not meet the same shortly lived fate. The idea of the show is that "you" the television viewer, are the perspective of the camera. Occasionally the camera changes to one of the frequent short video vignettes your friends create and post on a YouTube-like website in an apparent attempt to gain popularity for them. The humor is extremely current, intelligently executed, and never gets... for lack of a better work, "stupid," despite the subject matter. The scenes change so much that one feels like they are on a roller coaster for a half-hour ride. The episodes are sometimes funnier on the second viewing, much like classic Monty Python skits. The only downside of Secret Girlfriend is that it is "different." Being different means that the average viewer simply surfing through the channels may not stop to watch, but perhaps the constant beautiful women in nearly every scene will keep them occupied until they realize the genius of the show.
