"Austin Stories" really captured the essence of Austin's slacker lifestyle.
1 July 2003 | by ayak9See all my reviews

Ever since Richard Linklater's "Slacker", audiences have come to know the Texas capital as a haven for offbeat, over-educated underachievers. The three main characters in this youth oriented sitcom - Howard, Laura, and Chip - are all talented stand-up comedians who made the transition to acting rather effortlessly.

The way the writers captured their comraderie and the unique Austin ambiance was note-perfect. The series' brand of comedy was low-key, but intelligent, and amazingly true to life. The off-the-wall dialogue and screwy, convoluted plot lines made this show a winner. Even though it was not renewed by MTV, Comedy Central would do well to resurrect this series.

There were also plenty of memorable supporting characters. Richard Edson as Howard's brother was a notable addition in the last episode. And I'd love to see more of everybody's favorite, Tina the Goth Girl.
