Just horrible
16 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thankfully short-lived series about a group of incredibly annoying baby boomers and their pointless meaningless lives. This was (I believe) the first show to attempt to appeal directly to baby boomers. Thirty something did hit it big with that audience but that didn't start until 1987. thirty something was another annoying show with whiny characters who were constantly complaining and moping about--but it was a masterpiece compared to this. The acting in this was OK but the scripts were just dreadful. The first one dealt with a couple with a kid or two--but they weren't married. Nobody knew--they just assumed they were. So we spend an HOUR with these two going on endlessly about whether or not to marry. (They decide not to BTW). The second dealt with a divorced woman who was throwing a party because her divorce was finalized. Really--that was it. Another dull hour with this pathetic woman trying to act happy but (sigh) she's really depressed inside. After those I stopped watching. Every single line and situation was predictable--I got the feeling that the writers for this show assumed the audience was full of idiots. I believe it only lasted a month or two. Be happy you never caught this. Despite the fact that virtually every TV show is being put out on DVD I HOPE they'll skip this one.
