Ordinary borderline boring
19 March 2006 | by sistershrewSee all my reviews

I'm sorry, but this is not a very good show. The dialogue is bland, the events are predictable, and it feels like we've seen the insignificant plot lines a million times before.

The characters are extremely one-dimensional and over-dramatic to the point where it's annoying and/or frustrating to watch them interact. But this itself wouldn't be much of a problem if not for the fact that their 'interacting' is difficult to swallow and the script could use a hell of a lot more work.

Also, the chemistry between a lot of the characters is zero. This is a pretty bad thing considering much of the show centers around their relationships. Skip this show if you tend to dislike chick flicks. Because this is basically just a really bad chick flick disguised as a television series.
