Jaye is a Brown University graduate who chooses to spend her time and her wits working at a souvenir store by the Niagara Falls. She belongs to an overachieving family, which is why, despite the love and care of her parents, she is an underachiever. At her spare time, she hangs out at local bar with her high school best friend, and a bartender who stayed at Niagara Falls because his wife cheated on him during their honeymoon. On one fateful day, an inanimate lion comes to life and begins talking to her, giving her riddles while guiding her on exactly what she should do: in other words, to help people around her. Soon she's being sent to a psychiaratrist, and on each episode, another inanimate object talks to her and tells her what she should do.
The cast itself is perfect. I couldn't imagine any other persons playing the specific roles (although Lee Pace's character was initially played by Adam Scott, but he couldn't commit to further episodes. Same goes for Kerry Washington, whose role eventually went to Tracy Thoms). Caroline Dhavernas was a gem as Jaye. While she was entertaining on her own account, I also have to give credit to Katie Finneran and Lee Pace, who played her siblings. They became very much involved with their youngest sister when she was experiencing the events, even to a point that Lee Pace also had a clue what was going on.
The show may not be perfect, but it's entertaining and great. Somehow, ending on one season is fitting for something like this. If they prolonged it, it might have been too absurd or too repetitive, seeing as it really just diverted to her being able to talk to inanimate animals. Still, I'd like to see how everything would play out. This shouldn't have been cancelled earlier; it might have gotten a bigger demographic if all the episodes were played out.
