    Men of a Certain Age


    TNT - Men of a Certain Age

    ABOUT MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE

    John Lennon once wrote, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” For three men entering the second act of their lives, those words are starting to hit home in TNT’s newest original series, MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE. This wry drama stars Emmy® winner Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Golden Globe® winner Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise) and Emmy winner Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street, TNT’s Salem’s Lot). It marks a return to series television for Romano, who created MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE with Everybody Loves Raymond Emmy winner Mike Royce. The two serve as executive producers, along with Rory Rosegarten and Cary Hoffman.

    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.

    Men of a Certain Age: Season 1, Episode 1


    Men of a Certain Age - Pilot

    Joe, Owen and Terry have been friends for years. Joe, a party-store owner who once had dreams of being a professional golfer, struggles with his recent separation from his wife. Owen, a put-upon auto salesman, tries to make ends meet while working for his demanding father. And Terry, a handsome part-time actor, hopes to recapture the glory of his past. Between daily lunches at a local diner and hikes in the hills overlooking Los Angeles, the three do their best to support each other through the challenges mid-life throws at them.

    Men of a Certain Age: Season 1, Episode 2


    Men of a Certain Age - Let It Go, Sneak Peek

    Joe has been living in a hotel since separating from his wife, Sonia (guest star Penelope Ann Miller), but he’s starting to think about finding an apartment. Owen, who is one of the auto dealership’s weakest salesmen, winds up with an embarrassing dealer car, one his wife simply will not accept. And Terry goes overboard trying to track down a man who nearly ran him over.

    Looks good. A bit of humor. A bit of drama. None of the "who's guilty this week" ****.

    They have medication to treat that turrets syndrome nowadays.
    Good luck with that.

    About the show: I actually liked it. Dry humor that can be related to, I suppose.

    It certainly beats the hell out of, "So you think you can dance", "American Idol", "The greatest loser" and all the other worthless voyeuristic reality shows that Americans so desperately cling to.

    Real life is a whole lot different than reality TV people. I liked the show. Not "A" rate television but a far cry from the bull**** that is all over out networks these days.

    Ditto. I actually have to DVR Men of a Certain Age, because "men of this certain age" can't stay up that late to watch it

    I was "so you think you can dance" because my wife used to be into the arts, watches it eveey week and I try to support what she does as she now teaches some of it.
    Other than that, I do not watch any sitcoms or talk shows at all.

    Damn? Come to think of it, I haven't watched tv since the heisman? Anything new in thw world? lol

    Between reality TV and "who's guilty this week", I think this is the type opf show I'm gonna end up watching. I'm only 24, but there is nothing else on.

    What is on our prime time networks is on because it sells. This is the crap that people want to see. I am embarrassed for our species...seriously.

    It is what it is. I am an avid reader, so I never pay too much attention to what is on unless Football is on. I do, however, watch the History Channel and A&E when I am not reading. Did anyone else watch the WWII-HD 5 night event? Wow! I pre-ordered the DVDs.

    I can only watch a show when it is DVR'd so I can view it in 40% the time - less commercials.

    I've been longing to be "a reader" but there is so few free waking hours that are not accounted for.

    Well, if you ever find the time, I have a book with your name on it.
