• The format is totally innovative. The show is totally entertaining. Each episode is 22 minutes of nonstop Julia, er, Ellie's crazy life.

    Comparing this gem to the monolithic Seinfeld is as much of an unfair apples-to-oranges comparison as comparing any of Ron Howard's Happy Days work with his film work. If you must pigeon hole this show, at least compare it with Sex in the City.

    Tune in and fasten your seat belt. It's a wild ride.
