TV show description:
This sitcom was created by and co-stars Chris Moynihan, a veteran of Christopher Guests films. Taking place in New York City, the show revolves around a woman trying to figure out what her life is all about.
At the beginning of each episode, Charlotte Payne (Sophie Winkleman) is asked another question by a dating service counselor named Andrew (Michael Benjamin Washington).
This 100 question compatibility test is quite difficult for Charlotte and causes her to reflect back on her life and recount various stories from her romantic past. Staples of Charlotte’s memories are close friends Leslie (Smith Cho), Jill (Collette Wolfe), Mike (Christopher Moynihan), and Wayne (David Walton).
Charlotte’s had many marriage proposals but has never taken the plunge because she just hasn’t found her perfect match yet. The questions on this test might not ever help produce Mr. Right for Charlotte, but it does help sort out her life and uncover what she’s really searching for in a relationship.
Episode six — Have You Ever Had a One-Night Stand?
Wayne challenges Charlotte to have a one-night stand and it becomes a bet between them. With Jill and Leslie’s help, she connects with a sexy fireman but he turns out to be overly devoted to being vegan. Wayne reconnects with a hot Israeli model and successfully woos her, thanks to Mike writing a poem in Hebrew for him. He’s about to win the bet when he sees Charlotte drowning her miseries at the bar and he carries her home instead. Charlotte admits that she can’t have a one-night stand and he tells her that she’s too good for one. She gives him a meaningful look, as if she believes him to be “the one,” but he doesn’t follow through with the kiss. Back at the bar, Wayne’s model finds Mike attractive when he starts speaking Hebrew to her.
First aired: July 1, 2010.
