All coffee cups in the series are empty. This is clear whenever one character passes a cup to another and the sound of the character's hand making contact with the cup is amplified inside the empty cup. See more »
This has to be one of the best written shows in years. It has so much going on and generally speaking, this is a recipe for disaster. The name tells you this is going to be about sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, and it is. It is also about love, tenderness, trying to keep kids from growing up too fast, dissatisfaction with life and settling for what you think you want.
The dialog pacing is flawless and the humor timing is spot on. Things come at you out of nowhere, delivered in Duchovney's signature deadpan to great effect here. The writing does credit to the English language, albeit it well salted and peppered with expletives. The very best part of this show is that the characters felt well fleshed out from the first 5 minutes and they have continued to feel real. The relationships in the story line are valid and authentic.
In short, it just gets better and better. I find myself watching one of the rebroadcasts nearly every evening and enjoying it more each time.
