Storyline

In the east village, the twentysomething guy, Alex finally moves into this own apartment in New York City's East Village. There he finds that single life is not a walk in the park as he deals with urban life, his boring job at the copy shop, his irritating friends, his selfish sister and his crush on an unattainable goth girl. Yet, for all the troubles, life in the city is still worth it. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

Still enjoyable to watch 19 years after it was made.
10 June 2018 | by Tony-pollokSee all my reviews

Great show about a group of twenty-something friends living in New York City and the adventures they endure.

Watched this show when I was fifteen and I hadn't seen it since until one day I remembered the title and searched for the torrent. Now I have all 13 episodes and watch them all the time.

I wish there was a way to petition MTV for the show, but I doubt many people still remember.

Devoted fan
