When I first saw the pilot episode for this new CBS show, I thought it was a little campy, a lot cheesy and admittedly very funny. Fortunately, I stuck around for more episodes and I’m so glad I did. This is the millennial version of Friends, but they are all thirty-somethings, actually have professional careers and adult relationships and they live in Los Angeles. James Van Der Beek is sarcastic and a little clueless as a newly divorced doctor who has moved in with his married friends “temporarily”. Why do I have the feeling he will never leave?
Witty, pithy, honest and laugh-out-loud hilarious, this show has totally drawn me in and I’m hooked. But, as we all know, the mark of a good show is that it isn’t all fun and laughter. There are little threads of truly serious stuff woven in that make it interesting, having the characters address real problems that are relatable to the audience. It is fast-paced, wacky and deliciously entertaining and I dare you to try watching an entire episode without laughing at least once. CBS, if you don’t renew this show for a second season, there is something seriously wrong with you. [Addendum: CBS evidently has something seriously wrong with them, because they cancelled it. But rumor has it other networks are interested. Here’s hoping! The show is well worth watching, even if there aren’t all that many episodes.] – BETHANY

Jules gets some unwanted attention at a wedding. I have two observations about this. First, wearing that tight of a dress with such minuscule cups designed to show the most of your décolletage. Second, why is she wearing what looks like a wedding dress at someone else’s wedding? Major faux pas, Jules.
