The Random Years is an American television sitcom that aired on UPN from March 5, to March 19, 2002. A total of seven episodes were produced, leaving 3 unaired.


Set in New York City, the series starred Will Friedle as Alex Barnes, an aspiring music critic and recent college graduate working as a researcher for a magazine. He shared an apartment with his college friends Wiseman (Joshua Ackerman), a dental technician and Todd (Sean Murray), the so-called slacker who gets the good things in life despite not actually working for them. The men's lives are shaken up when Casey (Natalia Cigliuti), a smart and mature NYU business school student, becomes their neighbor.

The series primarily dealt with the characters dealing with their post-grad lives and the men trying to catch the affections of Casey.
