Storyline

Emily Sanders is a successful young woman with fabulous job in publishing and great friends. She got to where she is by working hard and always followed a set of self-imposed guidelines referred to as the "Reasons", as in reasons why not to do something that could have consequences in her life. However, when Emily gets involved with a roguishly handsome, two-timing author, she realized that somewhere she took a wrong turn in her life. She now has to get back on track, and once again be heedful of the trustworthy reasons that help her navigate her way through life. Written by DesertShark25

Plain and simple: Bad show
11 January 2006 | by luxfuxSee all my reviews

wow, this was bad. i can't understand how ms graham's agents did advice her to perform in this poorly written, boring show. not only were all the characters childish and cartoonish but the main character itself was so boring and stupid it really hurt to watch it. please, please cancel this junk fast, at least for ms graham's sake...

and for all those people who compare it to sex and the city? have you even watch satc? while i'm not a big fan of it, sex and the city is cleverly written, has an edge, meaning and most importantly characters that are more complex than these bubble gum kindergarten of a show called emily's reasons why not (nice title, but awful, really awful show)
