Snappy hit about a straight woman and a gay man who are best friends. She's a decorator with a snippy, self-absorbed assistant; he's a lawyer with a flamboyant buddy who has trouble holding a job. The scripts are laced with pop-culture references and in-jokes, but what's best about this sitcom is the cast chemistry.
