Season 1
4.4 out of 5 stars (107) IMDb 7.6/10

Matthew Perry stars as Ryan King, a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. Ryan's alpha-male boss, Stephen (John Cho), has a different plan in store for Ryan, making him attend grief counseling before returning to the air. A reluctant Ryan finds himself in a support group for "life change" where he meets an oddball cast of characters, all with their own backstories filled with varying degrees of loss. On his very first visit, Ryan convinces the group to deviate from their normal session and starts a tournament-style competition (March Sadness!) to find out whose story is the worst. Ryan's total lack of interest in "the healing process" proves distracting, and he soon butts heads with the by-the-books group leader, Lauren, played by Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti. Back at work, Ryan is confronted with the fact that he hasn't really processed his grief and realizes Lauren and the other members of the group might be key in helping him move on. Also starring are Tony Award winner Julie White as Anne, Tyler James Williams as Owen, Suzy Nakamura as Yolanda, and Brett Gelman as Mr. K.

Having seen the almost painful NBC promos that inundated my TV for this show, I only tuned in to NBC's early sneak peek during the Olympics because Matthew Perry - one of my favorite "Friends" - was a part of it. I expected to do my part and write it off.

But I was surprised to see that, while not laugh-out-loud funny, that this pilot had "heart" to it amidst the jokes, and it handled the line of comedy/tragedy effectively. Matthew Perry can do comedy as was proven on "Friends", but he is equally as adept at drama, also known from "West Wing", "Studio 60", and his recurring role on "The Good Wife" (which he is reported to also be returning to).

The chemistry with the quirky supporting cast is off to a fine start, especially with Owen, played by the actor who once played Chris Rock as a kid on "Everybody Hates Chris" (sorry, blanking on his full name. I know it is Tyler Something).

So if these folks can be fleshed out, and the humor sharpened, NBC and Matthew Perry may have something with potential here!

Just one caveat: Please, for the love of God, do not pair Ryan with the pseudo-therapist woman, Lauren. Laura Benanti is not a bad actress, but it also became apparent that she and Matthew Perry have no spark, and most know how things like this work. So, I pray the cliché is avoided in the end.

Otherwise, watch! Or DVR if you are a "Happy Endings"/"New Girl" fan as this will be against both. Or watch here online. But it is actually worth a peek if you like quirkiness, heart, and a bit of dark humor and drama.

I wasn't expecting too much from this show based on the premise and the choices Matthew Perry has made in the past. But, I am finding that each week, the crazy antics and over-the-top sincerity and weirdness of the featured "Grief Group" is really funny. In its own small way and in spite of Ryan's objections and resistance, he is changed for the better.

I absolutely loved this show, and was so sad when it wasn't renewed for a second season. As silly as it may seem, it actually got me to deal with my feelings following the passing of a loved one and got me to start living my life again.

The cast of characters are quirky and off-the-wall, but still believable somehow. Matthew Perry is at his finest in Go On. While he still plays his typical sarcastic, joke-cracking character, he's able to bring more depth than we usually see from him.

Matthew Perry plays a radio personality who is grieving the loss of his spouse. It takes a really serious issue about how grief affects us and how we cope and adds humor to it. It has it's heartwarming moments but is funny too. I can't wait to see the next episode.

I loved Matthew Perry in "Fools Rush In" and he was the main reason I became interested in "Friends" (my all time favorite tv series). It's good to see him in a new show that I can enjoy.

We stopped watching broadcast TV in 1988, with the exception of "Friends", which we started watching in 2001 and found to be an excellent example of an "ensemble cast" working well, like the old "Dick Van Dyke" show, or the "Bob Newhart" show. After "Friends" ended in 2004, the family caught several of the new series efforts by LaBlanc, Cox, Kudrow, and Perry, but really didn't take to any of them at all. Perhaps it was the lack of the "Friends" chemistry, or perhaps there was just too much reliance by the producers and writers on the allure of the "Friends" pedigree.

So having been disappointed, we didn't try this at first, but when Piper Perabo was announced (and we are "Coyotee Ugly" fans, and "Covert Affairs" was our only TV show now until "Go On"), we bought the first four episodes, and liked it. We've since bought the rest of the series, and watched up to the latest.

We enjoy the quips. We like the unexpected turns the conversations take. We question whether Mathew Perry has a thing for Courtney Cox in real life - since the female lead, Laura Benanti playing "Lauren", is morphing more and more into Courtney Cox's character "Monica" from "Friends" in both looks and behavior. We like the weird characters (which, naturally, we've known someone like that at one time or another - just not so much).

Piper Perabo continues to blurr her (or at least her character's) gender preferences, while being so entertaining that viewers of either sex really don't seem to mind. Knowing that Perabo and Perry were also supposedly a couple some years back makes the episodes with Perabo even more interesting.

So we look forward to further episodes, additional guest stars (but don't do the "Friends" guests - it will distract). But some other previous co-stars might be interesting (Natasha Henstridge, Amanda Peet, Bruce Willis, Neve Campbell, Oliver Platt, Elizabeth Hurley).

It's very much worth a look.

Had a feeling from the preview of the show that this was going to be a hoot. Was not really a Matthew Perry fan but he has handled his new part as a recently widowed sports radio show host well. Love the rest of the cast. Each brings their own wacky charm to the show. 'Mr. K' is so scarily funny! I look forward to finding out his complete story. I was also drawn in by Tyler James Williams (the former child star of Everybody Hates Chis). His story of a young man whose brother is in a coma due to an accident is unfolding nicely. Just when you thing you know all about his character "Owen" you discover new things about him such as his tiger mom and musical talents. 'Owen' is just a shy young guy trying to find his way without his best friend (his brother) and somehow has formed a bond with the Matthew Perry character while playing video games such as Halo. 'Fausta' - what can I say about her? She is too funny. Spanish is her first language so sometimes she does not quite follow what others are saying (or does she?). The cat lady nurse is smart, funny with a naughty kind of humor. 'Danny' whose wife had a baby with her boyfriend while he was away at war, with the unusual twist that they all are living in the same house is not a dimwit as it appears in the first few episodes. It is later found that he has his own coping method. Matthew's boss (and college friend) and assistant (Keri) at the radio station are good fun as well. His work life and group therapy life cross paths with hilarious results. There are several cast members that I have not mentioned, but it does not lessen their part in the show. Yes, it is a large cast, but each one brings their own quirky, lost soul character to life. Could not imagine the show without any one of the
