Storyline

Childhood best friends Maggie Caruso (Lennon Parham, "Best Friends Forever") and Emma Crawford (Jessica St. Clair, "Best Friends Forever") have shared countless adventures growing up together in the charming town of Pinebrook, CT. Now, Maggie and Emma are in store for one of their biggest adventures-raising a baby. When Maggie discovers that her husband is having an online affair with a muscular German woman, Emma gives up her burgeoning business career in China to stay in their hometown and help Maggie raise her baby. Meanwhile, as Maggie prepares for the birth of her first child and the fallout of her marriage ending, Emma must confront the past that she abruptly left behind thirteen years ago -- her first love and local cop Mark, her prim-and-proper mother and a small town that she's never felt comfortable in. Despite their differences - Emma is brash, bold, and assertive while Maggie is grounded, rational, and safe - the women complement each other the way only best friends can, ... Written by anonymous

Unexpected
7 June 2014 | by asd-561-611288See all my reviews

I really didn't think I would like, much less, love this show. Over the years, I've found sitcoms not to be my cup of tea. But I giggle many times during these episodes. Even if I can't totally relate to these two female characters, some of it is so right on for me. Also, I love the small town, pull together atmosphere. The supporting characters have so much detail and depth.

You can't help but laugh at some of the dialogue. Really, the first sitcom in a long time I would recommend. And nice to see Key in a good supporting role. Although I liked his turn in Fargo, too.

Every week when I see this show has recorded a new ep, I'm thrilled and can't wait to giggle with Maggie and her friend. I could probably do without the bitter mother that Jane Kazmaryk plays, but that would be my only complaint.
