Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Focusing on a female sports reporter and her posse of best friends--all but one of them male--My Boys takes a fresh approach to the buddy concept. P. J. Franklin (Jordana Spiro, Must Love Dogs) loves sports and likes to use sports analogies in both her newspaper column and when referencing her dismal love life. "I've come to realize that almost everything in dating and relationships has a parallel to sports," she says. "I'm a sportswriter for the Chicago Sun-Times. I cover the Cubs." At times it appears that her dating streak will be as dismal as the Cubs' attempts to win the World Series. But the most important relationship is the one she shares with her friends. Dressed down to look as much like a tomboyish print reporter as possible, Spiro has a freshly scrubbed appeal that makes her attractive to men without being threatening to women. The cast of Friends had their coffee shop as the place to meet. The My Boys gang has P.J.'s apartment, where they regularly gather for poker nights and gabfests. Yes, the boys are gabbers, whether they're talking about their confusing relationships, unfufilling careers or sports in general. Like the protagonist in Sex and the City, P. J. has a penchant for talking directly to the camera. Though it grows old at times, Spiro is likable enough that we forgive the tired conceit. The affable cast includes comic Jim Gaffigan as P.J.'s befuddled older brother Andy and Kellee Stewart as Stephanie, who definitely isn't one of the boys. Johnny Galecki (Roseanne) is so good in his three guest appearances as a deliciously annoying neighbor that it'd be a shame if the writers didn't bring him back in the second season. The DVD set includes all 22 episodes, which originally aired during 2006-2007. There's a nice little cliffhanger involving P.J., a trip to Italy, and the man who travels with her. Could this be her newest boy? --Jae-Ha Kim

Product Description

Starring hot new talent Jordana Spiro (Must Love Dogs).

5.0 out of 5 stars My Boys: Season One! February 11, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Thanks to a marathon TBS aired last year around Oscar time, I finally got to see some back-to-back episodes of the TBS original series My Boys. But not all of them. Just enough to get me hooked on the show.

Thanks to the Sony DVD release of My Boys - The Complete First Season, I can finally watch all 22 episodes from the show's brilliantly funny first season completely unfettered. The marathon, of course, was just an appetizer. With this Season One DVD, you get the main course with all the fixins. My Boys - The Complete First Season is a 3-disc set featuring all 22 episodes in Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) video; English 5.1 audio; English, French subtitles; Closed Captioning; plus a host of bonus features including featurettes, deleted scenes and more.

My Boys stars lovely Jordana Spiro (who sounds like Kristen Johnston from 3rd Rock from the Sun) as Penelope Jane "PJ" Franklin, a tomboy sportswriter for the Chicago Sun-Times whose life is surrounded by men, both professionally and personally. Playing the pivotal roles of PJ's guy friends are Kyle Howard (The Drew Carey Show) as rival sportswriter and former love interest Bobby; Reid Scott as pretty boy radio DJ Brendan; Michael Bunin as odd and quirky memorabilia store owner Kenny; Jamie Kaler as excitable skirt-chaser Mike; comedian Jim Gaffigan as PJ's married, sarcastic and sardonic older brother Andy; plus Kellee Stewart as Stephanie, PJ's best gal pal, who schools her on the fine art of modern dating. Look for memorable guest appearances from Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory) and Nicole Sullivan (The King of Queens) as Kenny's hipster friend Trouty and very pregnant girlfriend Kimmie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A series that you will fall in love with! April 6, 2008
By Amy R.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My Boys has instantly become one of my favorite tv series. I downloaded the complete season 1 on Itunes and came instantly addicted to the series.

It follows the life of Penelope Jane "PJ" Franklin, a Chicago Sun Times sportswriter and tomboy who is surrounded by men in her work arena and her personal life. Her boys include:
-Andy, PJ's older married brother whose constantly complains how his wife Meredith keeps a short lease on him
-Brendan (nickname Brando), one of PJ's oldest best friends and good looking radio DJ who constantly crashes at PJ's house
-Bobby, newcomer to the group and rival sportswriter as well as one of PJ's former love interest
-Kenny, owns a memorabilia sports store
-Michael, who worked in sports front office/works at Kenny's store

To balance out all this testosterone is PJ's best girl friend, Stephanie, whom she met in journalism school. Stephanie is always trying to get PJ to dress like a woman not a tomboy all the time. She is also helps her navigate the world of dating.

This series is told from PJ's point of view on the single life and the modern dating world with baseball analogies used through out. PJ and her boys all get together at PJ's place for their weekly poker game or at their neighborhood bar, Crowleys.

This series reminds me of Sex and the City with the female lead who narrates the show and takes place in a big city. The difference is that she has friends that are mostly guys instead of girlfriends. I enjoy the witty batter exchanged between her and her boys. There are definitely some laugh out loud moments. It is also about real life and making friends. These boys are like her family and she loves them.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a homerun! (groan) June 12, 2008
By D
Format:DVD
What a find! Don't even ask me what network this show airs on, because I don't know. I just rented it after reading good reviews, and I see what all the fuss is about. My Boys can compete with just about any comedy that has aired on the major networks in recent years. It's laugh-out-loud funny, but in a subtle, mellow, uncontrived way that puts most sitcoms to shame. The acting and writing are superb, and overall it's just totally charming.

I could really do without the cheesy sports-analogy voiceovers, but aside from that I think it's pretty much a perfect show, and every episode leaves me wanting to watch another. I hope the DVD release helps it to find a wider audience, because I think it's a shame that I hadn't even heard of this great series.

This show is fun to watch.
The characters quickly feel like the guys next door; I find myself looking forward to their next escapade.

They stray a little from the things that made this show lovable after this first season. If you want to cheap out - just buy this first season.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of a woefully underrated show
My Boys was the best show that TBS ever produced. Sadly, it was always under-watched and unappreciated, which is probably why this is the only season to be over 9 episodes. Read more
