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>

Why post now on a show that was cancelled near enough five years ago? Because its that good!
9 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

I'm not going to accuse of MTV of being stupid, whats the point? Its like saying the sun is hot, we all know it.

I love Downtown, there's nowhere near enough info and praise for the show on the web, yes there were only 13 episodes and OK you have a point that its a pretty old show but it deserves it all the same.

Someone said that there is not a single bad episode, I agree, and to add to this there is not a single episode which is not great.

The most realistic characters in a TV show in a very long time and their animated, go figure.

Dang, ten lines of text?
