Under-appreciated
4 March 2000 | by Son Of LegomanSee all my reviews

By no means Townies was not the greatest of sitcoms, but it wasn't a bad half-hours viewing. The series dealt with the lives of a group of twenty-somethings dealing with living in a financially struggling, fishing-reliant, town in the US. After graduating high school, their lives have gone nowhere important, with the three main cast members (Molly Ringwald, Jenna Elfman, and Lauren Graham) working in a diner, the main focus of the series.

The show struggled to find its voice at the beginning of the series, but once it did, it was obvious that the show was capable of achieving greatness. It's a shame that the series was cancelled so prematurely, because with a bit of time, and a better timeslot, the show could have been met with great success.
