everybody nice but not enough laughs
19 August 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Billie (Jenna Elfman) is a 30something professional movie critic. Her co-worker Olivia (Ashley Jensen) is her best friend. She wanted more commitment causing her boss and boyfriend James (Grant Show) to dump her. While she's out drinking with Olivia and her safely-married sister Abby (Lennon Parham), she meets 20something Zack (Jon Foster) and his slacker friend Davis (Nicolas Wright). Billie and Zack have an one-night stand. She gets pregnant and he insists on being involved. He moves in.

Everybody is funny, likable, and pretty. The situation in this sitcom is a little awkward but still workable. However the writing is just not funny enough no matter how hard the actors try. I guess the sit is OK, but not enough com. Maybe they just need more slapstick. This got canceled after one season. It's probably as much as can be expected.
