A fast-paced reality show that follows several incredibly busy and ambitious Manhattan women. Watch as they balance envious social calendars, challenging careers, and motherhood, with the hustle and bustle of the big city all around.

No dull waiting period--this is entertaining IMMEDIATELY.
This show has it all: attractive people, vastly desperate personalities, relatable protagonists, loathsome antagonists (this honor changes, but there's one big one), money, a BIG yacht, fun, interesting, and changing locations, interesting guests, interesting world, TIGHT quarters (GREAT for drama, but not claustrophobic at all because it's so open, vacationy, and they port so much - it's the OPPOSITE of claustrophobic), both a social element and very merit-based workplace element, and just the right amount of booze (not too much though - not like some IQ lowering Jersey Shore garbage).
Reminds me a lot of "Work Out," the gym-based reality show on Bravo a while ago, which I liked, but it can't compare to this, which is like that on steroids (no boring single location, much more intense drama with the demanding charters, luxury, etc).
Also, for the most part, you have something unusual for a reality show: intelligence. I think this will attract a smarter audience than other reality shows because MOST of the people (not all) are noticeably intelligent, as their job demands it ("5 star staff," including a chef, veteran Captain, experienced managers, a marine biologist, a fashion line entrepreneur, and a fireman).
I've seen 6 episodes now, but I was addicted from the beginning.
I think the two most important components of any reality show are the "characters" and the editing. The characters are there in spades, but the editing brings us the stories, and man do they make the stories POP! Hats off to the editing staff. I think we all like to see justice because we so rarely get it in real life, and the editors don't let anyone get away with ANYTHING. When someone does something stupid, we get to see the consequences, which is a great little respite from real life, where stupid people seem to get away with a lot.
I think there's something for everyone. I'm a straight dude, so seeing Hannah and Jules put on their shirts in the morning is a nice little bonus ;-).
Glad I found this show, but it sucks to be "jonesing" again for another damn episode!
