Fantastic Writing, Rings True
Frankly, I'm shocked that others here don't share my very high regard for this series. I also found it hilarious.
I'm 10 years older than the characters, but I spent my 30s as part of a "friend group" in New York and the show rang totally true for me. We weren't all authors, actors, lawyers, or just rich, it's true, but every series set in NYC has those types of characters, because otherwise the poor quality of real lives there would detract from the entertainment value.
I thought the show very nicely turned some tropes and clichés on their heads, maybe recycled a few, maybe might have avoided some, but the ensemble really makes it work.
I suspect there are trolls in these woods.
