Relationships are complicated but funny
9 May 2004 | by stefano-6See all my reviews

I loved this series and frequently show my copies to new friends and co-workers. It always shocks them and makes them laugh.

Long before Sex in the City, Grapevine was exploring the lighter side of relationships. This show was imaginative, funny and way to sharp for 1992 network TV. Like the Twilight Zone series, the producers always used up-and-coming actors, many of whom went on to huge success. What I liked most were the rapid fire editing and the amusing sexual references. Frequently, they would suggest something, cut to commercial, and come back discussing it - without ever naming it. It was so risqué yet clean enough for the censors. Wow was it sharp! In one episode the main character reaches into the night table, for what isn't shown, but when they come back from commercial he's talking about his adventures with his friends. We have to imagine for ourselves what can't be shown.

The 2000 version was very watered down and boring. The actors weren't as funny and the topics weren't engrossing enough.
