"What is always very important for me is that we’re pretty structurally rigorous," says Stephen Falk when asked how he'd like his FXX show to be remembered. "That our storytelling is fairly meticulous, and that things that you see onscreen—even if it’s just dumb sh*t, and I love dumb shit—feels holistically right, and that the center holds. We work really, really hard in the writers room to have stakes and conflict and story—you know, things that stories should have but don’t always. I hope to be remembered as a show that was structurally and tonally daring without feeling stunt-y. I want to be remembered as a lot of things, it turns out. I want to be remembered as a really good version of a romantic comedy that both played with and sometimes poked fun at the standard tropes of rom-coms, but at the end of the day actually adhered to them and became a really good example of the genre. And I would also like to be remembered as the place that people first took notice of Chris Geere and Aya Cash and Kether Donohue and Desmin Borges and Todd Robert Anderson and Allan McLeod and Janet Varney."
