Tv Season Info

Three longtime male friends experience midlife transitions and challenges in this comedy-drama. Season 1 introduces the threesome, who have been best buds since college and are now in their late forties. They include Joe Tranelli (Ray Romano), a kindly but somewhat maladjusted party-store owner; Terry Elliot (Scott Bakula), an easygoing part-time actor whose glory days seem to be behind him; and Owen Thoreau Jr. (Andre Braugher), a pressured family man who works at his oppressive father's car dealership.

Men don't talk about that stuff. We just don't.

Men of a Certain Age' does settle into a groove, and it's a good one.

I'm sure it's tempting to look at the cast of Men of a Certain Age and say Romano has no business acting in a drama opposite Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula. But Romano will sneak up on you, and the show might, too.

Reasonably good pilot, but stick around for the subsequent episodes. This show gets better and better.

It's fun to see these actors step into new but easy-to-accept roles.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

As one might expect from Romano, a fast moving mix of physical comedy and wry dialogue articulate this friendship, revealing its complexity and its depth.
