It's CW's best new series in several seasons.

Hot parties around the pool, intoxicated sex, smashed windshields, morning-after pills - what's not to like?

It's a primetime soap, but one that's genuinely more interested in what the characters want to do for a living than in who they're sleeping with. (Though there's still a good deal of that.)

What starts out as a seemingly generic series about an assortment of showbiz wannabes becomes more engaging over the first few episodes.

Score one for the underdogs.

For the type of show it sets out to be, this "Complex" is surprisingly, well, complex.

The L.A. Complex doesn't always ring true, but it's frequently fun.

Over all it's as essentially disposable as most CW shows, but in between the rockin' pool parties and show-business cliches there are moments that are better written and less formulaic than the norm for this network.

By the standards of similar American series, it is conspicuously modest - less aggressive, less glamorous, less heavy-breathing, more...nice. This will make it a hard sell to some, but I find these qualities appealing.

The dialogue is actually pretty darned good and kind of inside funny
