    Pleasurable, amusing, well conceived and written, though perhaps just a little shy on character development (New York excepted). Give this one time - these guys feel like they're worth getting to know, and the show as well.

The writing in this show is fantastic. Full Review »

    Luckily I'm still young and ex-art school student enough to enjoy this show.
    It's a shame that its third season was cancelled but it is

    It's a shame that its third season was cancelled but it is understandable because the target audience is very specific and small.
