Bottom Line: Yes, I know, another dating show but it’s worth giving D Don’t Date a second look. Rosie Tisch takes the neuroses and site gags that defines these shows and breaths new life into them as D.
D’s having a problem with dating. She sucks at it. Bad. But with her best friend Kate to push her, her guy friend Benj to mock her and her neighbor Creepy Richard to stalk her, she’s going to venture back into the dating cesspool that is LA.
Don’t worry. Her love life sucks worse than yours.
Cast: Rosie Tisch, Chris Fontakis, Marlene Martinez, Michael Beardsley

The scenarios that D ends up in are well thought out, and each story is self contained enough for you to hop into the middle of the series without feeling like you’ve missed anything. It has a sitcom feel to it, and it uses it really well. (Pacing 3.5)
It’s well shot and well edited but the sound quality can use some work. You get a lot of scratchiness and echo, especially when characters are yelling. (Polish 3)
The absolute best part of this show is Rosie Tisch’s D, I measure my dating procedural by the level of neurosis of the main character and D is a cut above the rest. Add to that a talented supporting cast and you have a markedly entertaining ride. (Watchability 4)
