Britt Lower played Liz, Josh's sister, and provided a more grounded approach to the show’s off-the-wall concepts.

The series explored many different types of romantic relationships, including Josh's brief flirtation with commitment to a quiet and introverted girl (Minka Kelly) whom he met on the train. The show also tackled the idea of long-term relationships and how they can struggle to stand the test of time.
