    Wow. I really do not think the goal of a TV show is to make you want to commit suicide within the first minute, but that was the case with this show. The banter and the rushed into premise just failed miserably from the get go.



    I really feel bad for Jessica Lucas and Danneel Ackles, two beautiful and somewhat talented actresses who are relegated to this. They gave it their best, but there's only so much you can do when you're dressed up as a bee or have to be in a wedding where the groom kisses multiple women.



    And Ryan Hansen was hilarious on Party Down, people liked him on Veronica Mars, but even he could only do so much with this weak script.



    The show is in the same vein as Happy Endings, where they think the over the top and ridiculous happenings to a group of twenty-somethings automatically equals laughs. It doesn't.moreless
