Storyline

This hilarious comedy follows the misadventures of two disenchanted friends who are trying to chart a wayward course through the shark-infested waters of L.A. Ten-plus years after graduating from NYU Film School, best friends Jackie Woodman (played by Laura Kightlinger) and Tara Wentzel (Nicholle Tom) are still waiting for Hollywood to let them put their skills to use. Jackie and Tara refuse to quit, preferring to remain suspended in a solution of willfully-ignorant optimism, promiscuity and irresponsibility.

13 August 2006 | by thecarveSee all my reviews

A bright spot on TV, only on cable it seems. Minor accomplishments, takes a good concept and weaves a funny line of thoughts, comments and seriously well written dialog into a package that minus the blue language would be smarter than 90% of the sitcoms today, they want to be this show but they just do no know how. Detail? Read on.

Funny and well written show. The acting chops are there and the situations are spot on. Give a whirl and you will not be disappointed.

It is cool to find little gems like his on IFC it restores my faith that people can still be funny without being over the top.

She strikes me as a great all around talent and has done a slew of bit parts the Will and Grace episodes were fall down funny. Nicholle Tom as her best friend is just as funny, whoever put those two together, hey, great call.
