    New TBS series with Ray Romano in a semi-serious role. It's kinda funny, very true (midlife crises are worse for men), but the endings of each episode is very VERY serious.

    I think they might have a hit.

    Well look at who they got to play the lead roles. Of course it's going to be a hit. It's the guy version of Sex in the City.

    I watched it last night, or tried to.

    Boring, trite and cliched is my opinion.

    Sorry.

    I have only seen the first episode, the second is currently stored on my DVR.

    I enjoyed the first episode, but then I imagine I fall squarely into the demo they are aiming for. At 45, I was absolutely able to identify with the characters, particularly Andre Brauer's "Owen."

    Having never seen, thankfully I would guess, an episode of Sex in the City, I can draw no comparison. I am not yet ready to commit to this show, it will take more that two or three episodes before that happens.

    Bakula and Brauer are what drew me to the show initially. I've enjoyed their work for sometime. I can take or leave Ramano, doesn't matter.

    I always thought Scott Bakula's parents had a sense of humor naming him cause it sounds like Count Dracula. :lol:
