Tonight me and my friends decided to tune in to the pilot of Don't Trust the B in Apt. 23. Needless to say, we were thoroughly pleased. Here's why:
1. Utter Hilarity. This show is not afraid to offend people (i.e. Chloe getting the 13 year old boy drunk) when it comes to being funny. It is genuinely hysterical and the humor is there without trying too hard.
2. Dawson's Creek References: The Paula Cole, the plaid button ups, the "Beek from the Creek" comment. None of it got old. I sincerely hope the Dawson's references will continue. (Here's to hoping Katie Holmes guest stars-I. WOULD. DIE.)
3. The cast: Krysten Ritter (Chloe), Dreama Walker (June) James (no-not Lafferty, sigh.) van der Beek (himself) deliver and make their characters funny but likable. Ritter plays the bitch part well, while still retaining a level of humanity and extreme loyalty to her friends (just ask James about Vietnam). Walker makes June kind but not too much of a goody-goody that she's annoying. She can play the bitch card, too, which is why we all know she and Chloe are going to get along. And James, sweet sweet James. Well, Dawson has definitely lost his bicycle (serious points if you understand that reference). James is out in the real world and using his Dawson-ness to get girls into bed. #winning . His career is also in the tubes (hence the Japanese energy drink commercial).
Oh #Apt23, I have a feeling this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. To quote Sister, "I am ON BOARD!"
