    Apartment 23 was and absolutely remains a huge heaping helping of Acquired Taste.

    There are some good ideas here, but they only occasionally click.

    This show only occasionally works, and I increasingly think it would have been a better bet as an animated show.

    "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" still remains to be hilarious, however, some of the wit is missing which is hugely disappoint. Also, there seems to be a lack of character growth especially in Chloe which sometimes leaves the episodes predictable in terms of what she might do. However, there is one character that truly stands out and that is James Van Der Beek. It appears as if he has grown from the rest which helps to make the episodes hilarious due to his truly gifted ability at comedic delivery and timing. Overall, the season seems to be stuck creatively, but it still maintains the ability to deliver weekly laughs. Also, while this does not pertain to the show it should be noted that ABC's scheduling of the show has been chaotic resulting in episodes airing out of order (since it airs twice a week). Collapse
