This Chicago-set sitcom follows the intertwined lives of six young urbanites trying to learn the ropes of adulthood. Through breakups and whatever other curve-balls life throws them, the pals stick together.
Once you're able to get over the first two minutes and the laugh track, it's not bad. I don't watch too many television shows, but I'm able to measure this against the standard of shows like The Office and Community (which started out great, but then got repetitious and extremely irksome pretty quickly, but I digress). I've never heard of Whitney Cummings before the show, and I found her naturally funny and refreshing. The acting seems a bit forced, but I wouldn't shoot it down right away. I think we just need to give it time. Actors, like all other normal human beings, get better with practice. I'm not saying they're amateurs, but it's not surprising to me for things to feel contrived at first, especially when they're performing live. I think once they're more relaxed and spontaneous, it'll be great. I saw a glimmer of that in some of Whitney's physical comedy (the way she slapped her thighs while going on about the "storm of sexy" killed me). I'm a wait-and-see, so I'll still be watching.
