This English sitcom is about Terry, Gary, James and Patrick, four Londoners who remained best friends and confidants past their sexual prime, married or even divorced, some with children, but still with a natural appetite for the ladies, no longer physically first choice but disposing of sufficient means (financial and socially, as they are successful in their respective professions) to be quite attractive; alas the wisdom of experience often proves somewhat illusory.

Manchild is the story of four friends. They know each other from childhood and always shared their experiences. Now they are all rich and at 50 they want to act like teenagers again, buying nice cars and dating young women. Sometimes they can be very silly or do wrong things, but in the end their friendship is always the most important thing. This series has only 14 episodes so far (7 in the first season and seven in the second) and I think it's just perfect. Manchild is never boring and sometimes it makes you think. Someone said that Manchild's target are men over 40, but I think that everyone can enjoy it. I'm a young woman and I totally love it! All the 4 actors are very skilled and I love seeing Anthony Head in a role so different from Rupert Giles. I really hope that the second season will come out on DVD very soon!
