A new comedy series about a bachelor brother and his newly divorced sister living under one roof again. Together, they coach each other through the crazy world of dating while raising her teenage daughter.

The writing and acting in this pilot episode is an order of magnitude better than any American comedy pilot I've ever seen.
If someone tried to reboot "Mad About You" in the 21st century with manic-depressive but snarky and brilliant undertones of the British show "Black Books", this show would be the result.
It is perfectly cast, and its characters feel like real people. They're not Hollywood dolls ("Friends"), nor are they court jesters dancing around in silly costumes for our amusement("Two And A Half Men"). They are authentic, they could be people we know, or ourselves, at that certain point in our lives.
After the 25-minute pilot I found myself caring about them a great deal, and I can't wait until the next episode.
