Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 Review

Why I Wanted to Watch Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23

Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 isn't the kind of comedy show I would normally choose to watch. However, the trailer above made me laugh hysterically, because of the last roommate featured.

I remember Walter White, from Breaking Bad, allowing Jesse Pinkman's girlfriend to die. That girlfriend was played by Krysten Ritter, who is now the bitch in apartment 23, also known as Chloe.

Will this sitcom become regular viewing? I really can't say. I think I will give it another episode and see if it's still funny.


Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 Synopsis

Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 starts with a sweet country girl moving to New York for the first time. June Colburn's (Dreama Walker) taken a job transfer and has even been put up in an apartment owned by her company. She thinks she's made it and that she can continue to make her overbearing parents proud. Unfortunately, when June goes into the office for her first day it's absolute chaos. The company has been defrauding it's clients and all company assets have been seized by the government, including June's apartment. June has to find somewhere to live and snappy.

June searches through roommate wanted listings. After meeting a number of strange potential roomies, she meets Chloe at apartment 23. Chloe is nice and they share a lot of things in common. June gives Chloe all the money she has left to cover the security deposit and the first months rent, but when she is leaving the apartment the girl at apartment 21 tells her "don't trust the bitch in apartment 23." When June tries to question her further, the girl slams the door and pretends she's not in.

June moves in and asks Chloe about the girl at number 21. Chloe explains that Robin (Liza Lapira) was in love with her and it didn't work out. Through the window is the pervert neighbor and Chloe is totally naked.

Now that Chloe has June's money, she wants her gone. Chloe survives in New York by overcharging poor, unsuspecting New York newbies and then driving them crazy so they have to leave. Chloe keeps the money and starts the cycle all over again. She even tells June that she over charged her for rent.

Chloe goes out for some fun with her best friend James Van Der Beek. He actually plays himself and continually talks about himself. Every girl he dates wants to relive his Dawson days and for some really strange reason he's friends with Chloe.

When Chloe comes home she discovers June has some backbone after all. June sold Chloe's furniture to get back some of the money Chloe stole from her. June soon feels guilty for selling the ottoman when Chloe gives her a sob story about it being the only thing she has left to remind her of her grandmother. June rushes over to apartment 21 and asks Robin for the ottoman.

Robin is gleeful to finally get her own revenge on Chloe. Robin previously lived with Chloe until Chloe ruined her life. Robin has already sold the ottoman and June and Chloe go to get it back.

In order to get it back, Chloe tries to seduce an old guy in the house, but it turns out he's just the neighbor. In the end, June gets the ottoman back by explaining how crazy Chloe is and that the house might accidently burn down one night.

James Van Der Beek uses his Dawson fame to encourage Robin to give Chloe back her furniture. June comes to realize the ottoman has no sentimental value to Chloe. Instead, it holds her latest drug stash, which is how she makes her living in New York.

June decides to leave, but is stopped when her fiancee arrives at the apartment. He's some weird scientist and has his science project with him in the form of a young boy, Jeremy. He also has the boys nurse in tow.

Chloe instanty doesn't trust Steve and gets Jeremy drunk. Once drunk he tells Chloe all of Steve's dirty little secrets; including all the women he is cheating on June with. Chloe tells June that Steve is cheating on her, but she just thinks Chloe is trying to wreck her life.

Chloe comes up with a plan to show June the truth. She has sex with Steve on top of June's birthday cake. June walks in and find them together. Nurse Jackie comes in and is astounded that Steve is cheating on her with Chloe, even though she knew he was cheating on June with her.

Jackie leaves when she finds out Steve slept with her sister. June is glad she found out about Steve now, rather than after marriage and kids. Chloe and June have now bonded. Chloe suggests they go home.
