  1. It is a finely crafted serial about contemporary and supposedly representative people in the same decade of life.

    The "quarterlife" series, too, offers an especially hopeful kind of exuberance, even a glowing warmth to the friendships, that shines brighter than previous Herskovitz-Zwick shows.
  3. The writing is smart, the production is crisp and surprisingly stylish, given the budget, and the show has a fascinating central character in kinetic blogger Dylan Krieger.

    This may be a show about young adults, but there are older adults in charge. And we've come to expect better from them.

    I don't feel negative necessarily about the flaws of quarterlife, but then I don't feel much at all about quarterlife either.
  6. Any show that's willing to go to such a silly place, to have its main character utter a line of dialogue that's like a parody of a parody of stuff these guys were writing two decades ago on "thirtysomething," is not a show I have time for, even if other shows won't be back until April.

    This exercise in tedium is better suited for its original home on the Internet, where it should have stayed.
