| Highly Entertaining Comedy
The show deals with a sleaze-ball play-write, Arthur Banks, played by Adam Goldberg. Each episode goes through a different relationship of his and the problems he faces in each one. His deception and manipulation he does to each love interest is quite despicable, but seems very real, and is quite funny.

Critics compare this to work to Woody Allen, but it seems much funnier. This could be mainly because each episode is 15 minutes compared to a 90 minute comedy. Adam Goldberg's character is much less neurotic and animated than Allen's character he plays from film to film.

I would most likely compare this to the tone of "The Royal Tenenbaums" mixed with the zaniness of "Arrested Development".
