    BFF takes a less than inventive situation and turns it into something close to sitcom gold, thanks to the fact that creators Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham have taken the time to write believable characters saying legitimately funny things.

    The show takes the time to give a few realistic dimensions to the characters' emotional lives, and each actor in the core trio has sharp comic timing.

It took a few moments to decide if it was good or not, but there were a few moments where I laughed out loud. I found it somewhat unpredictable, which is a pretty great quality in a show.
