Don't Trust The Bastards who control network television
14 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

I must have been doing some research on Krysten Ritter after watching VAMPS, I suppose that's how I found it. The title's catchy and gives an idea of what to expect. I'm a sucker for Krysten anyway, I have loads of her movies, although most of them weren't originally bought with her in mind, but she happened to be in CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC, SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE... And I thought it odd that such a striking girl was always second-string. So I jumped at the chance for the complete box-set of DON'T TRUST THE B---- IN APARTMENT 23. I had the notion that it would be popular with me. That it might be very cute. I had high hopes for it. Wow, what I didn't expect was that it would skyrocket to the highest echelons of my own hit parade. I am currently just finished with the first disk, so I'm not a fully-fledged expert yet, but real glad about that, I have only waded in, there is still a glorious pool of fun to paddle in. Wow!

Krysten Ritter is absolutely 100% perfect as Chloe, the titular wild girl. Dreana Walker is the perfect patsy as June, who has got to be the cutest nerd in the world. And James Van Der Beek is a must-see in this hilarious send-up of himself. The whole thing is pure genius. I am just fortunate to have it on DVD, in sequence, as it was meant to be seen, as I hear the network really messed about with it, from start to finish, airing it wrong, and cancelling it prematurely.

"I don't think that's a good idea," to quote that little cartoon girl at the end.

My highest recommendation. Not to puritans, the humor is not only risky, but quite bitingly sharp. Shame, the prudes, oh what fun they miss out on!
