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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?!?!?
