By this, I mean an unconventional looking lead man in relationships with women who most would consider out of his league. Lena Dunham has taken a lot of flack for her paring herself with more attractive actors on her show. A LOT! Yet isn't this the same exact situation? We live in a very shallow world and I admit I catch myself seeing what I would call an "odd" couple and wonder how that happened? Not proud of this but just being truthful.
I have done the same thing with Girls and the same thing with this show... Even though I know it does happen in real life, I do find it a distraction, esp on this show. On Girls, it is not so much Hannah's looks but her personality that I find off putting but the show is so well written I can give this bit a pass.
While on this show its both his looks and personality I find off putting. I just don't believe that he would even be on the radar of the two women he pairs up with the first season. Though I watched the 1st season I've not gotten past the 1st episode of the 2nd season yet because of this. I guess my ability to suspend any level of disbelief is getting weaker as I get older, LOL.
