The concept (normal -- that is, not glamorous -- twenty-something girls and their friends loose in Manhattan) has terrific potential.
But the boys seem obnoxious, the girls annoying and a bit unpleasant, and the adults (boss, parents) cold-hearted, clueless caricatures.
If the potential is not realized soon with a more compelling story and characters that are easier to enjoy watching, this will be at best a cult favorite.
