Romantically Challenged

I am fond of watching US TV series... though it's not so easy to watch them on TV since there's the Korean dramas on local channel, you can only catch them on cable.

One of the new TV series that I started following and enjoying watching is "Romantically Challenged" starring Alyssa Milano, Kelly Stables, Kyle Bornheimer, and Josh Lawson. The drama evolves around Rebecca (Alyssa), Lisa (Kelly), Perry (Kyle) and Shawn(Josh).

Rebecca is recently divorced after 15 years of marriage. Having never really dated before she was married and she finds it scary to start over now. She is clueless about dating and hopes to get some help from her equally romantically challenged friends.

Perry is Rebecca's best friend since childhood. He is a successful financial planner -- but also one of Pittsburgh's most sensitive hopeless romantics.

A struggling novelist, the witty and affable Shawn has been Perry's best friend and rent-free roommate for six years. Shawn is the emotionally unavailable cynic to Perry's hopeless romantic.

Lisa is Rebecca's younger sister Lisa. Behind her deceptively sweet appearance is a sassy pit bull ready to protect her older sister.

I guess the title itself made me start watching, am "romantically challenged" as well.... since am a 30 year-old single female... but I love Alyssa Milano. I loved her since her acting days on "Who's the Boss?" and loved watching "Charmed". She was my favorite character in the TV series. I think she's really pretty and a great actress. I do think I deserve some laugh now and then. It's really funny and I truely hope that it will have a season 2...and many more :D.


  1. How good is it compared to, let's say... Accidentally on Purpose? The title sounds pathetic to me. :D

  2. hmmm... haven't watched that one so can't really compare :D

  3. too bad it's cancelled :(
