Regular characters include Alex, the ponytailed ACLU lawyer with a heart of gold – but only if you’re a criminal. Allison is the politically correct wife always on the lookout for the latest multicultural trends. Devon is an angry leftist intellectual with no sense of humor or irony. Sierra is a middle-aged hippie who boarded the New Age bandwagon in the 1960s and never got off.Yikes. It sounds like practically everyone who lives in Toronto's "the Annex."
