Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It's an overused term, but few words seem more apt than bittersweet to describe the second and final season of the critically acclaimed comedy/drama Men of a Certain Age: bitter in that the show was brought to a close far too soon for fans and many critics, but also sweet in that the series, created by Ray Romano and Mike Royce, ended on the same notes of honesty, poignancy, and sheer creative quality that marked its beginning. The sophomore season of Certain Age also found the show escaping from the short-sightedness that painted it as a series about "guys in midlife crisis" to become a program about the second chances and minor miracles that were also part of the lives of its trio of protagonists: party-store owner Joe (Romano) shakes off the torpor of his divorce to finally pursue his dream of professional golf, while married man Owen (Andre Braugher) takes hold of his long-delayed destiny as owner of his father's car dealership. And while the transition of Terry (Scott Bakula) from lothario and would-be actor to a man committed to romance and a realistic future takes the occasional back seat to his friends' storylines, his struggles never lack for intimacy while also showcasing some of the show's most cringe-worthy moments as he attempts to shake off a lifetime of half-steps and fruitless relationships. In each of their stories, as well as in those of the people who orbit their lives, from Joe's children (Braeden Lemasters and Brittany Curran) to Owen's wife (Lisa Gay Hamilton) and coworkers and Terry's supremely patient girlfriend (Melinda McGraw), there is not a false note in regard to the operation of the human heart as how it truly works and not as depicted in network notes or audience demographic research. The writing in the second season (by several veterans of Everybody Loves Raymond, among others) achieves a sort of literary level in its best moments, a gorgeous opaqueness that reveals such depths of richness and truth behind the veil of ordinary life. That high-water mark is met by the direction as well as the exceptional cast, from Romano, who continues to prove himself a remarkably subtle dramatic actor, and Braugher and Bakula, down to supporting players like Hamilton, McGraw, Richard Gant (as Braugher's prideful father), Alanna Ubach, Sarah Clarke (the Twilight series), Matt Price, and Brian White. However, the season is again stolen by Jon Manfrellotti (Mad Men) as Joe's bookie, Manfro, whose cancer diagnosis peels away his Runyonesque exterior to reveal a vinegary sagacity in his uncomfortable dealings with Joe.

The three-disc presentation of Men of a Certain Age's second season is anchored by commentaries by the show's key players on all 12 episodes. Romano and Royce are the dominant voices, and the humor that they and fellow writers Bridget Bedard, Lew Schneider, and Tucker Cawley provide also allows for glimpses into the show's production as well as what might have happened in its third season. Romano, Royce, Bedard, and Schneider additionally appear on a solid featurette that discusses the tone and direction of the series in fine detail. There is also a brace of deleted scenes from both seasons, as well as a frequently funny gag reel, all of which should appeal to the show's small but dedicated cadre of fans. But more significantly, what those viewers can take away from this final season is not just the excellence of the episodes, but also the fact that Men of a Certain Age belongs in the ranks of such extraordinary works as Freaks and Geeks, Deadwood, Sports Night, Arrested Development, Veronica Mars, and other series that slipped the surly bonds of the medium and truly defined the phrase too good for television. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE returns for a second season with all three men facing a number of roadblocks on their continuing journeys through midlife. They know they can always rely on their friends to see them through. Joe (Romano) is a divorced slightly neurotic father of two who runs a party store and recently overcame a gambling problem. He's now decided to rekindle his dream of becoming a professional golfer training for a spot on the senior tour. Owen (Braugher) the married one of the group is finally asserting himself at his family's car dealership but is struggling with being the boss. Terry (Bakula) the relaxed handsome actor continues to search for stability after disastrous attempts at managing an apartment complex and reviving his acting career

5.0 out of 5 stars Second Season Even Better Than The First July 17, 2011
Format:DVD
I shan't bombared you readers with technical details about the actors, performance, directing, etc... of this show. Just wanted to stop by and give my opinion on Men Of A Certain Age Season Two...

I truly haven't been this impressed with a television show since the pilot episode of Eureka some years ago (and very seldom before that). Finally, there is a series on my TV that not only is fun, but displays some actual maturity as well. And quite frankly, Men Of A Certain Age is far more real than any reality tv program running today. If you have not yet seen Men Of A Certain Age, by all means put it on your netflix list, check it out on Hulu or TNT.com, or better yet, just buy the first season on DVD because I doubt very much you will be disappointed with such a purchase.

If I must admit to a greivence with Men Of A Certain Age, there are two that come to mind. Each episode is so well written and paced that you find yourself lost within it's run-time and wondering why it's over so soon. Additionally, the seasons are a bit short (only 10 & 12 episodes each for the first and second season respectively). I totally understand the short run with the first season, but I really would have liked to have seen another three to six episodes added to the second season. Both are very minor complaints with an otherwise superb series.

Unfortunately, it was announced a few days ago that TNT has CANCELLED Men Of A Certain Age. I'm completely dumbfounded. They cited low ratings as their reason for cancellation and really, it's not wonder the show received few ratings for the following reasons;

1. TNT didn't feel much need to advertise the show. I honestly only remember seeing commercials for the show during the airing of it's episodes.

2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Im so sad it's cancelled September 10, 2011
Format:DVD
I agree with everything A.G. said. Thank you for the insightful review.
It never ceases to amaze me how TV producers can continue to find more shocking trashy reality shows to put on the air. Then when anything with class comes on the air it doesn't make it for more than 2 seasons. I am so disappointed that this country can't find interest in a show with heart, warmth and nonshocking reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars ;0) February 25, 2011
Format:DVD
Another good season for me personally, Ray Romano, Andre Braugher & Scott Bakula did a good job the second season. And basically picks up where it left off, Scott's character is getting older still trying to find himself, sleeps with anything that walks hehehe, Andre's character still the family man and run the dealership & Ray's character still trying to get out their and date and I guess find himself since his divorce. What I love about this show is the hint of humor it has and the journey it takes you on with these 3 friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Fat Bummer! December 29, 2011
Format:DVD
I don't want to simply echo Men of a Certain Age's well deserved accolades, nor go off on a heartfelt rant about how one of the smartest TV series in many years should never have been cancelled. I only want to say that except for its brevity (2 seasons), you will not be disappointed with this series. Buy it or rent it, but you will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second Season Also Superb November 9, 2011
Format:DVD
Our three guys resume their middle aged lives in Los Angeles for us and again do a superb job of it. It is wonderful to see a show about three men who reach fifty. One of the big moments for them is getting up the nerve to all get colonoscopies together--how much realer can middle age get?

Mirroring the rest of the country, these guys are having troubles adjusting to the changing economics going on in the USA just as everyone else is. However, the bigger problem for each of them is sewn more deeply into who they are as people than what is going on in the country.

Our gambler can never really get away from gambling. He is always poised on the edge of destroying his and others' lives the very minute he starts thinking in gambling terms. It doesn't take much. This time it is no more than an opportunity which comes his way when his bookie has to go through chemo. Ray Romano does an excellent job of portraying a man who is unlikable a great deal of the time for this reason but he does have his moments where he someone you can like.

Once again the auto sales family is my favorite. The son is still trying to salvage the mess his father has made of his car dealership. He is not a super duper salesman himself so he has to find other means to satisfy and inspire the employees. His father is one of the most difficult people imaginable to get along with as a person, much less a relative. The son remains someone you like almost all of the time as he is used to trying to satisfy such an impossible person.

The actor becomes a car salesman for his friend. However he is bedeviled by a number of things. One, he can never entirely let go of acting, he still thinks of himself as maybe making it, even though he's 50 now.

5.0 out of 5 stars We want the DVD!!! April 28, 2012
By TimTide
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the best shows of the past decade easily. It stands out like a diamond amongst the schlock of network television. How dare they present America a show that involves real characters with real life issues and human problems and emotions, AND do it with good writing, thoughtful dialogue and sharp humor?!?!?
