Storyline

Absolutely charming!
31 July 2009 | by xoxo44See all my reviews

After watching all 35 episodes I can honestly say that this show is one of my all-time favourites. The ensemble of cast that was put together works extremely well, allowing for plenty of interaction between the characters and an inexhaustible creative freedom to explore the individual personas of each of them. The female cast seems to be especially in touch with their roles, allowing the viewer to genuinely care about the characters while at the same time be able to identify with the variety of personal traits that are satired in each of them. The viewer also gets a chance to rediscover the world with amnesiac Samantha, who is forced to reexamine her friendships and her relationships and try to do the right thing, which is never as easy as it seems. To me, Samantha's best friends Andrea and Dena are the best thing about the show and watching the two of them interact has guaranteed hilarity ever since the Pilot. The writing is clever, packed with fresh and intelligent comedy that puts any show with a 'laugh track' to shame. As the show progresses, the timeline becomes more important to the story, the acting never disappoints and the cast ensemble proves to be an irreplaceable formula. Cancelling this show has got to be the stupidest thing ABC has ever done, and I will never lose hope that it will come back someday in some way.
