5 Reasons You Should Be Watching A to Z – The NBC rom-com - starring Ben Feldman and Cristin Milioti as opposite-attracts couple Andrew and Zelda, who may or may not break up after eight months, narrator Katey Sagal teases - deserves more love (and eyeballs) than it's currently getting. Far too often are we stuck with cinematic couples with blah to middling chemistry, so can't we give this winning pair a chance for the long haul? I mean, just look at the way he looks at her: When it comes to the Inter-webs, TV shows usually go one of three routes: pretend that it doesn't exist, make their character(s) hopelessly inept/tech-phobic or shoehorn clunky references to appear in the know. (Did you hear about the time Madam Secretary McCord's takedown of the king of Swaziland was trending on Twitter?!) Then there's Selfie, the whole premise of which is built on social media itself. The show has fun trying to rival Tinder with the latest app from Wallflower, the Internet dating site where Andrew works, and hits dating in 2014 right on the nose. If your significant other is cramping your style in real life, you're probably gonna talk to him or her before you resort to living out of your car. A to Z places Andrew and Zelda in comedic situations and has them make some boneheaded decisions (it's still a TV show), but it refrains from going overboard. There's a relatable verisimilitude to the execution of all their issues, whether it be figuring out if you should go on a date you had set before you met your (presumed) OTP or if you should invite your new boyfriend to your surrogate mother's funeral. Genre lines are more blurred than ever, and we're just months removed from Orange Is the New Black and Shameless flip-flopping between drama and comedy at award shows.
