Despite a squeaky start, and Dreama Walker being sickly sweet, this show is filthy funny.
Krysten Ritter is wicked at being an alcoholic / drug addict / it girl / bitch and she has some of the best lines I’ve ever heard on American TV. She delivers cutting like a seasoned pro and is officially my favourite TV character for ages. I want to be her, but I like eating too much.
It turns out James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) is a brilliant comedy actor (please check out the Dancing With The Starz episode if none of the others) he leans heavily on Dawson jokes, but if you were a teenager in the 90s, Dawson jokes are hilarious.
If you still don’t like it after the pilot, it might be that you’re just not a funny person. Think about it.
