Manhattan Love Story

"Manhattan Love Story" review by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays 8:30/7:30pm on ABC

I enjoyed this sitcom. It reminds me of some of the romantic comedies out in the movies, but it was pretty funny. Better than most I've seen. It even made me a little choked up near the end! That doesn't happen very often.

Analeigh Tipton plays Dana, a single woman, and Jake McDorman plays Peter, a guy that her old college friend sets her up with. They're both reluctant to be setup but agree to it because the sister is really pushy. Dana just started a new job, and they're really mean to her, so she ends up having a really bad day before her date. The date doesn't go well, but they do like each other and things develop later from that.

Dana is new to the city and is kind of na´ve, and Peter is the opposite of that, but he finds her charming and smart, despite himself. I just found the jokes kind of funny, and I liked the characters. I'm not saying it's hilarious or anything. She reminds me a little of the actress who starred in "Dharma and Greg".

The show has a "gimmick", which is that we hear what each of the characters think while they're on their date or otherwise with each other. At first, when I saw the commercials, I though it sounded kind of contrived and stupid, but the show is pretty good on its own. They didn't need to come up with the gimmick at all.

Check it out and see if you agree!
