I was fully expecting to love this show. It has a cast of fine actors doing a fine job, but unfortunately the clumsy script lets them down. The thing has no heart or direction, just a lot of not very interesting, one-dimensional characters going nowhere, who seem to function only as stage props for each other. Their relationships have no depth or form, their thin history known only through awkward anecdotes. The dialogue is laughable. ("Do you remember that trip we did to Nepal last year?") The motion set up in the first episode fails to gain momentum, though I guess there's still time for something meaningful to happen. I've persevered through three or four episodes but can't face another one. I'd like some insight, some depth or maybe some lively plot development, but it's just limp. These are people I find hard to care about. If this is the time of their lives, heaven help them through the decades of excruciating tedium ahead.
