This is a funy, quirky show. Whether you like it or not
depends largely on whether you like the two leads, Torie
Anderson (Evie) and Joshua Sasse (Xavier). Evie is a
beautiful, but klutzy girl, who seems to be meandering
through life, even though she likes to plan. She's
what they call "adorkable." She works at a terrible
job, with an awful boss, and she has a very quiet, dull
boyfriend. Her family is kind of mean to her, but not
in an abusive way, just in that way that families can
sometimes taunt each other.
She has two friends at work, Hank and Kareema, but both seem
to be more caricatures than real people. That was the only
part of the show that didn't work for me. Hopefully they
will develop those characters a little better as time goes
Evie meets Xavier by chance and they're instantly smitten.
She really enjoys how he lives his life in the moment and
seems to just have fun all the time, even though he's a bit
of a man-child. Then she finds out that he thinks an
asteroid is going to hit the earth and kill everyone.
She thinks he's a bit crazy, but eventually she does come
around more to his way of thinking. Love can certainly make
you ignore the warning signs and fall in love with someone
who may be crazy.
Xavier gets her to lighten up and have fun. He has a bucket
list, so they start crossing things off his, as well as
making her bucket list. He encourages her to keep trying new
things, even though sometimes he does things that she
doesn't like. In many ways, the show is very realistic,
despite the meet-cute and the kooky friends.
The show is based on a telenovela, much like The CW's hit
show "Jane the Virgin." It does often remind me of that
show. They call it a drama, but it's really more like
a comedy or light drama. There aren't too many heavy or
serious moments. It's all just very fun and positive. I
think it's a good show to watch as you relax and unwind from
