The characters are so beautiful and amazing.
Felicity
While many of the plots are silly in just the right way, this is far less about what happens than about how the characters groove together.

MTV has produced some great scripted series in the last year or so(Awkward is a great example. i just want my pants back is another terrific example(please MTV change your mind on cancellation of this show).the show has a small but terrific cast. Kim Shaw is the standout of the show, she gets the one liners and delivers everytime. the basic premise is young adults trying to make it out in the real world(pun intended). every episode was hilarious.whats great about the show is that it doesnt go over the top. keeps it real while still being funny.im gonna miss jason,tina,stacey,eric,bobby,and jb(played by chris parnell)Come on Mtv. how about canceling one of the many jersey shore spinoffs or teen mom and keep an actual entertaining series. a definite 5 star series.

In a million years, I never thought I'd be heralding MTV as a choice purveyor of fine scripted series. But after a hit or miss record, the last year brought forth a wealth of worthy entertainment. With the teen angst supernatural thriller "Teen Wolf" and the spot-on teen angst comedy "Awkward," the network seemed to be providing what people wanted to see. While I love both of these shows (for different reasons), I have a special spot in my heart for the two shows that flew more under the radar. Coincidentally, neither had to do with teen angst--maybe that's the deciding factor. The delightful monster mash-up "Death Valley" and the urban relationship comedy "I Just Want My Pants Back" both provided more laughs than most of contemporary television. And I'm not sure anyone noticed. Instead of trying to cultivate an audience, though, MTV has treated these two like red headed stepchildren. Neither were even given proper DVD releases which, I'm convinced, would have helped develop their status as worthy cult hits. "I Just Want My Pants Back" (just like Death Valley) is only being provided in a DVD-R on-demand format which means they'll press the discs when you order it and the shows will never see the light of day as an actual release that someone might find and enjoy by accident.

In truth, there's nothing particularly revelatory in the set-up of "I Just Want My Pants Back." It centers around a quartet of post-collegiate aged young adults trying to survive in the big city. Of course, this means random hook-ups, lots of partying, and a struggle to pay the rent with whatever job happens along. What distinguishes the show, however, is the likable cast and the sardonic humor.

Look, it isn't actually a five star show. But it was a REALLY really good one anyway, full of actors too early in their careers to hide behind a lot of lazy actor tricks but who were strong and skilled, too. It was a show that was what so many shows have since tried to be, and I just don't get why a network wouldn't indulge it at least one more season to see what happened. I suspect maybe because it was too smart and maybe aimed a little older than the children Mtv court these days. I know Mtv always wanted kids as viewers, but Mtv at some point turned into a witch from a fairytale that tries to keep the children from ever growing up, haha.

One observation. these kids have a hell of a lot more sex than I suspect any normal people have. I don't mean that as in I'm just ugly and unlucky, I'm not. I mean like I would worry about these people if I were friends with them. In real life they'd be like crying for help with the number of partners they kept. I think the show maybe was written by the less lucky of us and perhaps over estimated what constitutes an active sexual lifestyle? I don't know.

Watch this! I would rate this with my favorite shows even today, and it has been a few years since I saw this.

Great underrated show that was cancelled far too soon. Likable, characters you can relate to. Definitely something I would re-watch and try to get other people to watch too.

Absolutely delightful series from MTV about a group of young people just starting out in New York City. Peter Vack is not only beautiful, but a joy to watch in his acting and subtle, humorous, self-deprecating character. I had seen him in the Amazon production of Mozart in the Jungle and I found this series -- his first, I believe -- as a result.

Reminiscent of MTV's great series, Undressed, but even more fun.

The characters are so beautiful and amazing. Their personalities are what makes this show addictive to watch. It doesn't have a strong plot but MTV finally didn't do a show about teenagers who are still unable to actually drink and party and whatnot and made the show about legal out of college friends that are learning what its like to be in the real world and do things themselves.
