Storyline

After his wife leaves him for his best friend, John Lacey joins the One Two One Club, a support group for divorced and widowed people. The group consists of its fiery British leader Louise, sleazy Kirk, neurotic Ralph, aged but foxy Mrs. Philbert, and Kate, a red-headed divorcee who presents a possible love interest for John. Over the course of the series, the characters help each other first come to grips with their situation, and then overcome it, often with hilarious results. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindspring.com>

Best show of the 80'S!
12 July 2001 | by (United States, California) – See all my reviews

My buddy Chris likes the shows on channel 6 so this has got to be one of them. Well After Wendy leaves John he joins the 1-2-1 club. John has problems so it is up to Kirk to help him. Well John is the smartest in the 1-2-1 club. Ralph is the dumbest. Louise thinks Kirk is bad at giving advice.
