If you've been married for many years, are in engaged or you're still swinging in the singles crowd, this show has it for everyone. Patrick Warburton and Megyn Price play the happily but haggard married couple Jeff and Audrey. Oliver Hudson and Bianca Kajlich play Adam and Jennifer, the newly engaged couple who don't know what they're in store for. Then, there is David Spade as Russell. A 40-something single person who still chases women like they're going out of style.
Jeff is hilarious as the husband who loves his wife, but has become numb to many things after being married for 12-years. Adam proposed to Jennifer quickly without thinking about it and is now beginning to see where his "freedoms" that he had as a single man are slowly going away, yet he still loves Jennifer. Then there's Russell who laughs at everything the married and engaged couple go through but nothing really works well for him either.
This DVD comes with all 7 episodes in 1.78:1 anamorphic wide screen format. The picture is crisp and clear. The sound is great, for a TV show. It contains some special features including bloopers, the cast doing a screen reading and a set tour with Oliver Hudson. But, that's about it which is kind of a shame. No commentary from any of the cast. So, I'd give a 4 stars to the show itself, but only a 3.5 for the DVD. The DVD is not a 3, so I have to go with 4 stars.
But, for those that have not seen the show, here is a listing of the episodes:
Audrey and Jeff invite Adam and Jennifer, a newly engaged couple, to an art opening.Read more ›
David Spades character (Russell) is like a 5th wheel to his friends Adam (Oliver Hudson) and Jennifer (Bianca Kajlich) who are an engaged couple and his other friends Jeff (Patrick Warburton) and Audrey (Megyn Price) who are a married couple. Jeff is hilarious with his deadpan humour and deep voice and it seems like Oliver Hudson got some comic skills from his mother Goldie Hawn because he's also great (and cute).
There are some good special features here such as bloopers, set tour with Oliver Hudson, from table reading to taping and Rules Of Engagement dvd-rom content.
I love this show so much that I can't wait for season 2 (although it's delayed because of the strike). It's the kind of show you can watch a few times and still laugh at. I really love Jeffs Wooby episode, where Russell has a new date that makes lots of s*xual refrences in her conversation but won't sleep with him. That's got to be the funniest. Do yourself a favour if you love comedy - buy this. It's so good and a definate new favourite show of mine. I can't wait till Australia finally catches up with the rest of the universe. I love it.
You have the ever-single, quirky, wealthy guy who sleeps with a new girl every time he gets the chance. Here, it's David Spade's character, and he plays it well. However, he compares easily to Barney in HIMYM.
Then you have the engaged couple. While that is different from Ted and whoever he's dating in the other show, the characters behave in a similar fashion. They WANT to be married, but it never works out until the last season.
Then you have the married, stable couple, who eventually work to have a baby. No, they aren't the crazy, fun couple that Marshall and Lily are, but both of them bring a different life to a similar role. You do still have the business-smart but otherwise kind of dim husband, and the sharp but unfocused wife.
With all that, you'd think I'd be kind of upset that this seems a bit "copycat", but even though you can easily draw the comparisons, the situations these characters face are different, and the actors help set it apart with what each of them brings to the table.

I didn't realize that this first season of the show was only seven 20 minute episodes on a single DVD. For the price I paid I was expecting more episodes than that. Read morePublished 2 months ago by K. Rowley
