All of these stories take place in Manhattan, with only one or two brief forays into other boroughs, and they all centre around relatively well-off people, mainly white or Asian.

Start watching Mama's Boy and you still won't understand. Yes, the premise is tired -- kid won't leave home even at 29; mom meets a new guy who moves in and wreaks havoc on kid's cushy lifestyle -- and even though we already had a Grandma's Boy a year earlier, Mama's Boy starts out funny enough to merit a few chuckles and hands off the fast-forward button.
