A coworker told me to watch this. It's pretty good. Each espisode is a stand alone story. It's based off of a column in the New York Times.

Yes, I've watched a couple and need to finish the series. I loved the one with the doorman!

I believe there are ten episodes. I liked about half of them. The last episode ties them all together for a conclusion.

I've watched a few episodes. So far the Doorman is my favorite, too. I read a few reviews and was surprised they weren't that good. I have enjoyed it.

Well, I just stopped what I was doing to watch the first episode, thank you very much.

I wanted her to marry you know who. I won't give it away, but you know very well who I am talking about. If the rest of the episodes are going to disappoint me, I will be coming back on here and taking names.

I forgot about this! I watched a few, but I didn't finish the series. I really liked the doorman one.

My bf and I really enjoyed them. I've read a lot of the essays, too (which are also interesting) and enjoyed seeing some of them brought to life.

The one with Tina Fey and the famous husband, that is based off of an essay written by Denis Leary's wife. (Not fiction, she was writing for real)

I liked the doorman one the best too. I also thought Anne Hathaway was very good in her episode. I also liked the one with Tina Fey. I forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder!

I thought the premise was interesting and clever. I liked most of them but don't remember which ones I didn't like. I also liked the doorman one and the Tina Fey one a lot!

It’s been a while since I watched/discussed this, so I don’t remember all of the episodes. I liked many of them very very much. I thought they were mostly clever, timely, and well acted. I disliked 1 episode pretty intensely (dad), but not enough to overshadow the rest. Like 1956, I really liked the way the final episode tied it all together—watch closely, even the vehicles.

I really enjoyed this series. I liked the doorman the best, but also Tina Fey, and the one with the guy who has the online dating site. I found the Anne Hathaway one depressing, but well done.
