Samantha Who?

I watched the pilot of the new vehicle for Christina Applegate, and so far it's really funny. It's got lots of cute moments, and her friends are so different it works. Basically she's awakened after 8 days in a coma with no memory of who she is or who anyone in her life is. Somehow she woke up with a whole new moral code because she discovers that she didn't like a lot of the things she used to do or say (like her affair with a married man, her alcoholism, and being really mean to her boyfriend). She seems to want to fix most of these, and hopefully that'll be the future of the show, and not her turning back into the evil person she seemed to be. I'm going to go watch the second one. It shows on Mondays at 930 on ABC.

Addendum: I watched the second episode and it was still a good show - she realizes she's not the kind of person she wants to be (or is really worth being) and wants to quit her job, but in a send-up of Carrie Bradshaw, realizes she has purchased too many shoes and must work to pay for her shoes. Looking forward to next week.

One of my students was telling me this show was funny and cute. And she loves Gilmore Girls, Buffy, and Alias, so clearly, she has good taste. :-) Between your recommendation and hers, I think I'll tune in one of these nights. It sounds a little bit like "Thirteen Going on Thirty" with thirteen-year-old Jen Garner wanting to reform the ways of thirty-year-old Jen.

I meant to watch tonight, but missed it after all! So glad to hear the second episode carried on the glowing reports I heard from the first... Thanks and hugs, B :)
