      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

It was pretty good. The girls are less sympathetic than I'd like, but it seemed realistic enough. I think my girlfriend, who moved to NYC after college and tried living there while working for Random House Publishing for 3 years and barely making ends meet would relate much better than I would.

I can't understand why someone would move to NYC without a job, or even with one? It's a stupid place for a person with little money to live.

I enjoyed it a lot actually. I'm fascinated with it because I disliked almost every character. But not because they're badly written or acted.

I even disliked her parents that cut her off cold turkey. I get what they're trying to do, but cutting back on her would help just as much. Throwing your kid on the street essentially is just terrible.

It was really interesting. I'm curious to see how the show plays out.

True - but they are under a false impression regarding their daughter. They think she still has her internship and it will lead to a job soon and that her book is far more alnog than it is and is more likely to get published when it actually won't be at all.

I understand. But it's still terrible. I think scaling things back makes far more sense especially since they KNOW she's not making money yet. Just because you will make money soon, allegedly, doesn't mean you can just skate by in the meantime. And although, yes, her parents deserve to relax in their old age, the mom wanting to escape to a lake house or whatever it was and just leave her daughter hanging was just bad.

I just felt like everyone, including the parents, came off as not totally likable. I understand them, but each character just came off really rough.

I'm also saying that's a good thing. It intrigued me that I didn't like the characters. I won't say it's "real" that way, but it's definitely far more interesting than knowing, "Oh, she's the slutty one. Oh, she's the smart one."

Yeah well it's her own damn fault for trying to live in NYC of all place. :P

It looks like Tiny Furniture the series.

Also I couldn't help but laugh when I saw the father from the Honey I Shrunk the Kids tv series.

I thought it was pretty good. I'm hoping theres a likable male character in the show at some point.

The three dudes are already more likeable than the entirety of the female cast.

I also enjoyed Veep too. Not especially amazing, but I still liked it.

This episode was definitely a lot better. Guys are still the best part of the show though.

"See you ladies. I mean, see you sluts. *pauses* You're a slut. Bye."

I've only seen episode 1 and have mixed feelings. As sisko mentioned, I find myself disliking all the characters. I'll watch ep 2 before I make a full judgment on whether or not I'll continue watching.

lol I just found out it is the same girl that wrote/directed/stared in that. So I guess it is Tiny Furniture the series. I wasn't interested in it so I just hadn't bothered to check till someone was talking about it at work today.

lol IRM, don't ever change.

Been greatly enjoying the show thus far. The episode charting the dissolution of Marnie and Charlie's relationship did a tremendous job of leveling the playing field regarding where the blame fell, though saying either one was necessarily at fault is awfully reductive, all things considered. It became less of a matter of Marnie being unreasonable and more of a situation wherein Charlie briefly fulfilled a role for her and she outgrew that phase, necessitating a breakup beneficial to both parties.
