Synopsis

How does one win at Life?

We're entering a new era of social etiquette. The cultural landscape is quickly changing and the rules are blurry. Conventions surrounding issues like relationships, the environment, multiculturalism, technology, media, consumerism as well as life's minutiae are both challenged and defended by the four via absurd situations and excessive analysis.

The Four
Happy-go-lucky Matt from Montreal, power hungry Greg from Toronto, assertive (yet naive) Alexa from Red Deer, and space cadet Axel from Vancouver become friends through circumstance and we find a sophisticated new comedy about how navigating life without a rulebook is all about perspective.

    looks interesting, but without hearing actual dialogue it's hard to tell what this show is actually going to be like…

    Another interesting looking teaser, but I had a hard time hearing what they were saying. The music was too prominant. Will fallow to see if I can get more.

    This IS "Friends"! Even has the same font in the avatar! Your log-line doesn't say anything about the show and your teaser is more like a sketch piece.

    They may be a bit too self absorbed to be interesting in the long run - but would watch again to see where it goes

    Thanks for the feedback Brian and Grayson. We've noted your concerns and appreciate you voicing your criticism.

    Is it possible however, for a sitcom to be about a group of friends trying to figure out life in the city and not have it be somewhat similar to Friends, Seinfeld, New Girl, HIMYM, It's Always Sunny, Survivor, Fear Factor, and especially Shark Week?

    More importantly have we not all been there? If not please don't hesitate to share your own "Lifers" moments, experiences or any kind of feedback - this is a show for the viewer to enjoy and while we realize not everyone will love it, it remains our only objective.

    Thanks everyone else!

    Adieu,

    Matt Gass.

    I wasn't a fan of "Friends" back then, and don't care for any re-working of it.
