Does anyone remember the WB show Jack and Jill?

Can anyone think of a better looking overall cast? They had some gorgeous people in this.... Ivan Sergei, Amanda Peet, Sarah Paulson, Justin Kirk, Simon Rex and Jaime Presley. Most of them went on to have decent careers as well. I used to love it, it was a more dramatic version of Friends. Unfortunately, it only lasted 2 seasons.

Didn’t watch it, but wasn’t the whole elevator pitch just that the guy was named Jill and the chick was named Jack?

I loved that show. Simon Rex was at the peak of his hotness. Who would have thought that, out of that cast, Sarah Paulson would end up as the most successful.

I miss the late 90s/early 200s shows so much.

Peet was stunningly beautiful back then.

I worked in the old McGraw Hill building when this show was on. There was a black guy who worked as a messenger for the company and he was, as we would say today, ultra-cringe. He used to say he watched this show every week to see Amanda Peet’s feet — apparently her feet were on display a lot on this show?

He would also masturbate loudly in the stalls in the bathroom, standing up, even if someone was sitting in the next stall. (No, not a turn on.)

^Some people's children. Seriously.

R2, and Paulson was the outlier in the attractive scale. She’s not bad looking, but not on the level of the other 5.

R3, there were some great shows back then. I think this show was right after Felicity, another good one.

Wow, I had no idea they were best friends since the show days. They had great chemistry on the show. Paulson actually aged better.

I consumed most of the early WB young adult shows, but couldn't get into this one. I did have a straight male coworker who was really into it. Guess he liked Peet's feets, too.
