The focus is squarely on the people, not any plot mechanics, and the result is a deeply internalised drama about the unspoken awkwardness in all relationships.

Wants to be a subtle, penetrating look at a group of 30-somethings and the lies they tell one another. Sometimes it achieves that aim. And sometimes 'more mature' just means 'duller.'

Disappointing and hollow.

for the most part In the City leaves its characters just as we found them

So blandly targeted at the upper-middle class urbanite that it always fails to excite. It might be upscale, but it's a bit stale.
