My most vivid memory of this series is eating [[Melba Toasts]] while binging this from a DVD set. I was binging on series before Netflix made it easy. It was the right combination of comedy and a preview of the adult life I was imagining for myself - hanging out with a constant set of friends at an old watering hole. How did my actual adult life turn out? There was definitely a lot of that, but now I have a daughter, it feels a little like I have just lived through that phase of my life and am moving forward. Did I wish I had a series to give me a preview of [[parenting]] life?
