Ellen Morgan is a neurotic, 30-something, bookstore employee who tries to get by life in dealing with her various friends who include the outgoing redhead Paige, insecure photographer Adam, her unsure-of-himself cousin Spence, coffee shop guy Joe Farrell, the critical and obnoxious Audrey, and most challenging of all, Ellen also has to contend being around her annoying and overbearing parents Lois and Harold.Written by
The character of Audrey was dramatically re-written when she became a major cast member. In the first season, she was in only one episode, as a character, with whom Ellen was long-time friends, but didn't like, because she was always pessimistic and complaining. But by the end of the second season, she was portrayed as increasingly chipper, upbeat, and constantly optimistic. See more »

This was one of the funniest shows I had ever seen until the last season. The characters were hilarious, the was an amazing chemistry between the whole cast, and the scripts were well written. In the last season, however, it went from being a show about Ellen and her friends, to a show about Ellen being gay, and *nothing* else! This not only took away from the show's dynamic, but it completely alienated almost all of her audience. I think it was a poor choice to focus only on her sexuality. I hope that her new CBS show is more like the first three years of her old one.
