    I searched and didn't see a thread on this so thought I'd start one. If there is another please forgive.

    I've watched three or four episodes now. It has its moments. Thoughts?

    I've only seen one episode, but I'm interested only because these are my people. Plus I'm willing to give Ray Romano the benefit of the doubt.

    i like it in a sort of "i have no hope for my future" sort of way. it's well-done, IMO.

    I love this show. I'm only 23 and I don't think you have to be in a middle age crisis to enjoy this show.

    I think it is funny, creative, and I've DVR'd every episode.

    Watch it.

    And I was desperately hoping this was going to be Pio's coming out thread.

    Sorry G33k, not going to happen.

    It's a little contrived, but what show isn't? It has an interesting trio of main protagonists.

    1) Small business owner that lost his marriage. Gambling problem and wife was unfaithful.

    2) Son working for once famous father, at father's business. Son not a good performer at the business and has rival father prefers.

    3) Once minor actor, now aging lady's man with bum job. Still gets major punanni.

    I've been curious about this show since I started seeing the commericials. Now that I'm reasonably sure it doesn't suck immensely, I might add it to the DVR.

    I am bummed. I had set the DVR to record this whole series and thought I had, but I've only got 2 episodes so far. [​IMG]

    As you watch it, do you think to yourself "OMG This is totally what my life is like?" I think that's what doctors want to do with shit like Grey's Anatomy.

    Hard to tell just yet. I definitely thought that from the early previews I saw. But like I said I've only seen a couple of episodes. It certainly has a familiar tone to it.
