Theres Patty, Faiths free-spirited single friend and co-worker who's always looking for Mr. Right Now; Cynthia, Faiths no-nonsense married neighbor who likes to speak her mind on all issues, relevant to her or not; and Andy, Faiths fun-loving best friend from college who works as a reporter at Rolling Stone.[ Send Yours ]
Take Caution—This is a terrific new show. There is a lot of sexual innuendo here, but it is funny and real.
Avoid—As an adult without children, I was shocked at the content and lack of taste. To call this a comedy is stretching the point. My seventeen year old niece happened to see it also. She felt it was “horrible”. What are we saying to teenagers and young adults? What a poor showcase for what could be successful, talented actors.
