Men Of A Certain Age TNT:New TV Show Ray Romano & Scott Bakula – TNT’s latest original series Men of a Certain Age premiered last night.The show’s cast include Ray Romano,Scott Bakula and Andre Braugher as fifty-something men who are the perfect antiheroes.Here is the synopsis of the first episode:
Men of a Certain Age explores the unique bonds of male friendship among three men experiencing the changes and challenges of mid-life. They have been best friends since college but now, in their 40s, are navigating through the second act of their lives. Joe (Romano) is a friendly, slightly neurotic, recently separated father of two who had dreams of being a professional golfer. Now he owns and runs a party store. Terry (Bakula) is a laid-back, handsome actor who seems to breeze through life (and women). Lately, he’s spending more time working as a temp than as an actor. And Owen (Braugher) is an overstressed husband and father of three who endures constant criticism from his father, for whom he works as a car salesman.
These friends face very different challenges. Joe, who currently lives in a hotel, tries to connect with his kids and is dipping his toe in the dating pool, while also struggling with the gambling problem that may have ended his marriage. The unmarried Terry scoffs at domestic issues but sometimes wonders if his own single life is all it’s cracked up to be. Owen does everything he can to climb the sales board at his father’s car dealership and keep his cool over the seemingly endless renovation project in the home he can barely afford. Through it all, these men are there for each other when it counts
Despite being a decent show “Men of a Certain Age” will only appeal to a specific type of men.Hopefully the writers will provide funnier plots instead of constantly shedding a negative light on aging.Seeing that the upcoming episodes look more promising we might give this show another shot.What are your thoughts on the episode?
That’s all we have for now on Men Of A Certain Age.
