Entertaining writing, sparkling performances, and a rare sitcom with a FRESH feel!
Wow! What a fun show. I've been a fan of Jennifer Finnigan from her outstandingly entertaining work in a guest-starring role on Crossing Jordan and through her first sitcom. I'm pleasantly surprised to find that the entire cast is equally sharp in this new offering! About the rarest thing to find in a new sitcom is a freshness of approach and "Better With You" definitely has it. Oh, the scripts are not revolutionary -- after all, it is a sitcom about modern couples living in the city. But they are fresh, unpredictable, and absorbing. There is a sure hand on this very polished comedic work and it's great to see top-notch actors wring laugh after laugh out of truly engaging material. In all the best sitcoms, the comedy springs from character -- clearly everyone on either side of the camera knows this and knows how to deliver it.
