If you are not yet on the Men Of A Certain Age bandwagon – climb on up. This show just keeps getting better and better. Now that Glee is gone for the season, the only new shows I’m still relishing are The Good Wife, Modern Family, and Mercy. And, of course, Men Of A Certain Age.
The premise is simple – three college friends remain close and share changes in their lives as they hit the mid-century mark. They talk about wives, girlfriends, kids, parents, the usual stuff, except that it isn’t usual at all.
Ray Romano (Joe), Andre Braugher (Owen), and Scott Bakula (Terry) are perfectly cast in well-written roles. Joe owns a party store and has separated from his wife. Owen works for his dad selling cars and lives with his wife and three children. Terry is an unemployed actor working as a temp and dating ferociously but questioning his lifestyle.
Because the storylines are so nuanced but compelling, this is much better than the capsule I’ve provided. Take a look online and get caught up…airs Mondays at 10:00 p.m. on TNT.
