Check.

Eerily similar bar meet-up?
Check.

Vanilla lead male looking for love?
Check.

Voiceover by funny guy?
Check.

Attractive, Canadian girl-next-door as female lead?
Check.

Funny redhead we've always thought was unconventionally cute?
Check.

Care free, crass best friend who thinks with his penis? Check. Cast featuring American Pie alumni? Check. Veterans from two great, canceled-before-their-time comedies (Arrested Development, Freak and Geeks)? Check. Multi-camera comedy? Check. Laugh track? Check.
