The series is a comedy that follows the misadventures of Gwen Morgan, a 35-year-old actress living in Los Angeles. The woman is a walking contradiction--she's intelligent, but naive (especially when it comes men) and she's a loyal friend, but can be self-centered and oblivious. Maggie and Martin are Gwen's twenty-something best friends. Both are geeks and sci-fi fans who can't go a day without making a reference to Star Wars, Star Trek, Alien, etc. Since Gwen is a child of the 80's and seriously challenged when it comes to all things hip, the two have to work hard to keep her in the 21st century. Gwen is a magnet for drama, so they also do their best to keep her out of trouble. Recurring characters include Alistair McCrackin, a loud, irritable Scotsman. He's a genius with a weakness for women and always broke because of it. Not to be left out is an unnamed, ill-mannered video store clerk who turns out to be quite ubiquitous. He's the loser with ten dead-end jobs and he's everywhere. ...
