What kind of childhood imaginary friend behaves like that?
19 April 2017 | by gjwSee all my reviews

This is a fairly standard sitcom (other than the animated imaginary friend character). But one thing that drives me crazy is that the basic gimmick doesn't make sense the way the writers have it play out.

The title character is supposed to be her imaginary friend from when she was a child, which has returned. Yet this imaginary friend behaves nothing like a child would behave. It encourages her to have sex, to drink, to party endlessly… Most children are grossed out by the very idea of sex (especially between their parents), hate the taste of alcohol (if they're somehow allowed to sample it), and their idea of partying is to go to Disneyland or a waterpark.

So, if her actual childhood imaginary friend returned, it would most likely urge her to avoid all boys like the plague, and perhaps encourage her to pig-out on sweets rather than booze. This imaginary character is more like the spirit of her college years, when young people indeed do cut loose with the whole sex, drugs and rock 'n roll scene. Had they made this character her college/teen conscience, then it might've made sense, encouraging her to remain a college-age party animal. But making it a childhood friend doesn't work at all.
