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.
Caryn Goldfarb (Becki Newton) ends her engagement and her unromantic relationship. Zara Sandhu (Meera Rohit Kumbhani) paints weird drawings to sell on the streets. Stosh Lewandoski (Zachary Knighton) loses his job and has no place to go. He tricks his gullible cousin Eric Lewandoski (Nate Torrence) to take him in. The two groups live in townhouses next to each other.
I like these actors and they are really the only reason I kept watching. It takes a little while to set up the group in the first episode. Basically the group struggles to find their chemistry as characters. I don't think modern sitcoms have that kind of time. They need to begin right from the start as friends. They could always do flashbacks if they need a scene from the past. I think the audience had a tough time figuring out the group dynamics if the characters are still figuring it out themselves. It's 6 episodes and done. I don't think they deserved more in the present day environment.
