This sophisticated show has pop-culture references, loving friendships, well-cast stars and the sure hand of director James Burrows. The bawdy asides sound witty rather than smutty, and the show has been shrewdly assembled.
The concept is more credible than it might sound thanks to clever scripting, an appealing cast, and the masterful hand of James Burrows. Getting Burrows to direct your pilot is the equivalent of having your house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
It's a sitcom that has the potential to prove to prime time that attractions between adults are not always rooted in lust. With its promising little ensemble, the biggest problem is that it's scheduled opposite Ally McBeal.
