Give it a go
The biggest reason to recommend The Cosmopolitans is that it's unlike any other comedy pilot out there. You won't be blown away by its plotting, nor will you find loads of straightforward, sitcom-style gags here. But it's the tone, the rhythm of it that's so distinctive. As with many of Stillman's movies, the characters are slightly formal, awkward and unintentionally funny. One reviewer on here wondered who is meant to relate to a bunch of well-educated but impoverished American twenty- somethings living in Paris. Well, the answer is, anyone with an imagination. You don't have to be a tormented Louisiana cop with visions and a drinking problem to enjoy True Detective, do you? Yet whilst there are thousands of cop shows out there, there are no comedy dramas quite like this on TV. So if you like a bit of variation, give it a go.
