Last night on TNT
By chance, I noticed one of my favorite shows, The Closer, started it's season last night. Whew..That was close. Anyway, It was good and I was glad that my tivo alerted me to my oversight.
After The Closer was over I watched the new show Men of a Certain Age. This Stars Ray Romano, Scott Bakula, and Andre Braugher. It's about three guys in mid life. For me the jury is still out. I have to admit I don't find the characters that sympathetic, but that may just be because I have my own mid life man to deal with.
It is interesting to see Ray Romano in a serious role. Scott Bakula is hunky as always, I still miss Quantum Leap. Andre Braugher's character is the most sympathetic, as he is struggling to support a family and deal with diabetes, all while trying to prove himself to his father who he works for. Poor bastard.
First episodes are hard to gauge since they are mostly just setting up the back story, but I'm definitely going to watch of few of these, if for no other reason than to get some insight into my own man of a certain age. Worse case scenario it'll make me grateful for having it so good.
