'Men of a Certain Age': Becoming Invisible to Women (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Dec 28th 2010 8:01AM
'Men of a Certain Age':  Becoming Invisible to Women'Men of a Certain Age' (Mon., 10PM ET on TNT) follows the lives of three men who are experiencing, well, a mid-life crisis. Middle age can be a tough time for everyone involved, men and women both. But on the new episode, Owen (Andre Braugher) encounters a uniquely guy-ish problem. Young ladies no longer see him; rather, they see through him.

Yes, Owen has become invisible to the opposite sex. As he enters the guys' local breakfast joint, two women look right past him -- even as he holds the door open for them. But if Owen is expecting sympathy from fellow middle-agers Joe and Terry (Ray Romano and Scott Bakula), then he's come to the wrong place.

"You guys see that?!" Owen says. No, dude; whether your friends saw it is unimportant. The main thing is that the ladies didn't see you. Owen quickly protests that he used to be hot; girls used to check him out. "No," says Terry. "No," says Joe. " ... No," Terry adds, just to make things even clearer.

Aged to (Near) Perfection: 'Men of a Certain Age' Hit Their Prime

by Maureen Ryan, posted Dec 6th 2010 4:40PM
I apologize for posting this review of the second season of 'Men of a Certain Age' (10PM ET Monday, TNT) later than I'd planned. The cancellation of 'Terriers' threw a monkey wrench into the middle of my day.

But perhaps that sad news gives me a chance to tell keenly disappointed 'Terriers' fans that there's another show out there that is quite good at examining the lives of men past the first flush of youth, a show that spends quality time on the ins and outs of real friendship.

Even if you've never seen 'Terriers,' or indeed the first season of 'Men of a Certain Age,' you're likely to find something to enjoy in the second season of 'MOACA,' which expertly mines both comedy and drama from life's awkward transitional passages.

'Chuck' Co-Creator Chris Fedak on "Season 3.2"

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 21st 2010 3:04PM
Zach Levy as 'Chuck'If the last episode of 'Chuck' felt like a season finale... well, it's because it was. The episode was initially supposed to have a thirteen episode season, but NBC decided to order another six episodes. According to Chris Fedak, who co-created the show with Josh Schwartz, the good news came at an opportune time: as they were writing episode thirteen.

In our wide-ranging talk, Fedak and I talked about how the pickup affected the writing process, how the new dynamic between the characters on the show is playing out, if he fears the energy will fizzle, why Tony Hale wasn't around this year, and if he's confident the show will get a season four.

(Warning: Fedak talked fast, so this is a long interview, with a very minor spoiler near the end. But there's a ton of good info for 'Chuck' fanatics, so read and enjoy!)

'Men of a Certain Age' - 'Back in the S#!t' Recap (Season Finale)

Andre Braugher, Ray Romano & Scott Bakula, 'Men of a Certain Age'
(S01E10)
A lot of things have changed for our favorite trio of men over the past nine episodes, and yet this tenth and final episode of the season managed to push each of them boldly into even bigger moments in their lives. For one, the change is definitely good. For another, it certainly has the potential for greatness. The third is completely up in the air.

Everything that's great about this show was on display in this installment. There is not a member of this cast who isn't knocking their performances out of the park on this show. Just as I was about to write that Scott Bakula was particularly impressive this week, I remembered a couple of scenes between Andre Braugher and Richard Gant (as his father) that were simply awe-inspiring. And then there's Ray Romano in the car with his son Albert, played by Braeden Lemasters. With very little dialogue, that moment was just oozing with emotion.

In a word (and I'll use it to sum up this entire season): amazing!

'Men of a Certain Age' - 'How To Be An All-Star' Recap

There's nothing particularly unique or extraordinary about the lives of Joe and Terry and Owen, the guys of 'Men of a Certain Age.' But the very fact that the situations and circumstances are normal makes how their characters react all the more interesting.

A lot happened in this episode, even though it wasn't big, dramatic stuff like you might expect. No, it was small moments, little things that didn't seem like much, but oh, what a blast in the storytelling. With the last episode of the season airing next week, this was one hell of a lead up to the big finish.

Review: 'Men of a Certain Age' - 'You Gonna Do That the Rest of Your Life'

Things are rarely as we think they are in life and on this show. Each guy has an idea about the other, but it's never as simple as they think it is. So this week we learned that Joe's bookie is a sore loser and perhaps a catalyst. We also learned that everything doesn't always go Terry's way, no matter how often he seems to luck into things. And Owen's diabetes is conflicting with his appetite.

Review: Men of a Certain Age - Father's Fraternity

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 26th 2010 4:00AM
Men of a Certain Age(S01E07) One of the many things I love about Men of a Certain Age is the wonderful marriage shown between Owen and Melissa. She is such a wonderful counterpart to all of his insecurities and frustrations, and yet knows when to stand up and let her own voice be heard. I thought the relationship was on wonderful display when Owen came home complaining about being forced to do the commercial, and she was able to quickly get to the root of the matter: his stagefright.

The series continues to add layers to the characters, even giving Owen's father a hint of sympathy this week. Don't get me wrong, the guy's still a complete and total hardass, but he was willing to do the right thing, and seemed genuinely confused by the misunderstandings people were having about the intention of his commercial.

Men of a Certain Age renewed for a second season

Men of a Certain Age
There seems to be just an onslaught of TV news coming out these days, eh? Even if you don't count any of the Leno/Conan/Tonight Show stuff.

TNT has just announced that they have given a green light to a second season of Men of a Certain Age. The exact order is for 10 episodes, though I guess that could be increased at some point. The show has been getting good ratings (averaging 4.5 million viewers a week) and it's a genuinely good show. More serious than you thought it was going to be but also with some humor. Maybe it's because I'm in my mid-40s too but I find the show quite different than anything else on TV right now, and I'm happy to see a second season.

Review: Men of a Certain Age - Go With the Flow

Men of a Certain Age
(S01E06)
Who knew Men of a Certain Age had a lighter side? In a rather dramatic -- or actually not so dramatic -- departure from the previous five episodes, "Go With the Flow" showcased a lighter side, and it was much appreciated. As much as I love the series, it's nice to know that these guys aren't just suffering constantly with their various issues and phobias.

Actually, Joe's issues were front and center in this story of his blind date with Sarah Clarke (Nina from 24), but that's a lot of what made it so fun. Actually, the fallout from Joe's issues impacted not only that first date, but also a span of days at work, when an online chat with Dory (Clarke) prior to the date went somehow very wrong for Joe.

'Chuck' Season 3 Preview and Predictions

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 10th 2010 12:30PM
Chuck Season 3, Zachary LeviSeason 3 of 'Chuck' premieres tonight on NBC at 9PM, but rest assured, it's "No more Mr. Nice Spy!" Chuck discovers all sorts of new talents, including kick-ass fighting skills, the ability to play the guitar (very well, we might add), and even the prowess to sweep a lady off her feet on the dance floor.

Good news? We think so! Chuck's geekiness is still a big part of him, but we'll embrace the new Chuck 2.0 super-spy with gusto.

When last we saw the Chuckster in the season 2 finale, he had turned in his pocket protector at Buy More and picked up a jaw-dropping check for government services rendered during the past three years. At Ellie's wedding, Chuck pulled Sarah into the hallway. "Sarah Walker, will you do me the honor of ... taking a vacation with me?" But alas, Sarah was planning to leave in the morning to work with Bryce.
