Serious Jest: animated beer mug 25% (transparent bkgrd)animated beer mug 25% (transparent bkgrd) (Don’t Bother)  This show is very well done for what it is.  The script is witty, the actors are capable (although I’m not a fan at all of Madeleine Martin‘s deadpan portrayal of Becca Moody).  I just can’t relate to these characters.  For the most part, they are wealthy, entitled Los Angeles socialites who do terrible things to each other, yet they continue to hang around each other.  They are co-dependent, dysfunctional, hedonistic, and incestuous (not literally).  Not my cup of tea, but the story is compelling enough that I watched all the way through Season 2.
