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.

Smart, and Funny and Stupid.
20 February 2008 | by alphawave2012See all my reviews

From the great mind of Laura K. and D. Punch, comes a show about losers who win at living life. Jackie tries so hard in a town of idiots to push her screenplays of intelligencia. While Tara, her best friend, is succeeding without really trying and sleeping on the next opportunity.

Dark-sarcastic, and very smart, but at the same time it's sprinkled with stupidity, and happiness. Like life it has it's ups and downs. But has you laughing all the way through. It has you thinking on the obscure references and bitch slaps you with present pop culture.

While IFC (which runs the series exclusively) has only shown Season One, and only three episodes of Season 2; what has come out, is well worth watching again and again.
