Default Emily's Reasons Why Not - The Complete Series DVD Review

The series that was pulled after just one episode in 2006 is now on DVD with all (or most?) of the unaired episodes! Emily’s Reasons Why Not: The Complete Series arrives on a single-disc DVD-R set from Sony Pictures Television Manufacture-onDemand.

To prevent herself from repeating an established pattern of poor relationship choices, self-help book publicist Emily Sanders (Heather Graham) looks for warning signs of trouble ahead that she dubs her "reasons why not," and uses these personal insights to make informed decisions about the various life struggles she deals with on a daily basis. With help from her childhood friend, Reilly, and gay herbalist Josh, Emily applies this method of self-preservation to every aspect of her life - from work to love to everything in between. Emily's "reasons why not" are the reasons why you should watch this uproariously funny comedy which also stars Nadia Dajani, Khary Payton and Smith Cho.

I've been working on an episode guide to short-lived sitcoms like "Emily's Reasons Why Not," which should be published later this year and, in the course of my research, I have corresponded with Alicia Kirk who worked on the series. According to Ms. Kirk, only 6 episodes of this series were produced - not 7 as indicated on some websites. Following is Ms. Kirk's response to my inquiry:

I wrote the episode "Why Not Look at Bridal Magazines" however it was never produced. We had our order cut to 6 episodes, including the pilot which was the only one to air. I believe the series was sold overseas and all 6 eps ran in other countries. I don't have the 5 reasons but the gist of the episode was Emily getting caught up in wedding fever when a friend wants to suddenly get married. If you have any other questions you can email me at this address. Thanks,
Alicia
