Nate and Marni are complete opposites; Nate's comes from a long line of geniuses who all eventually go insane. Then there's Marni, an occupational therapist and everlasting optimist. Somehow, they meet and ironically find a connection that could become love, if they allow themselves to let it happen! Also, there's a dying clown living in the closet. Written by
In the pilot episode, Marni tries to get a date to sing "Mahna Mahna" with her. In later episodes, it turns out to be her cellphone's ringtone. See more »
Marni suggested we do something together.
Alright, how about Saturday?
Saturday's no good. I'm doing something.
Oh, I see. You think I can't play basketball because I'm in a wheelchair.
No, I think you're a great basketball player.
Why? Cause I'm black?

I got this show from an internet download (I don't live in the US. I wasn't expecting much but I really was impressed. My g/f and I loved it, even from the pilot. The main guy reminds me of Ben Stiller or Jason Lee - if you like the awkwardness of 'Meet the parents' you'll probably enjoy this show. Nice to see someone taking a few chances with sitcom, it touches on several points concerning race and disability, always getting close to the edge but without offending anyone. A nice surprise was that the supporting players are all good, esp the guy in the wheelchair. Apparently my comment didn't contain enough lines so I'll add that in one episode they used a real cat, which surprised me, normally a sitcom would use some awful puppet.
