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.

They approach the issues with humor and sensitivity. I have found the show to be entertaining and educational. As Terry said "to be fit and solvent by 50" is a mantra all of us plus 40 men can subscribe to. Issues they have tackled is everything from the trials of tribulations of having a girlfriend half your age to the death of a parent. All done in good taste The four friends play well off each other and have qualities to be admired and problems that we can relate to. Some times the solutions to these problems can be pure genius. Another element of the show is fantasy. There is not one of us working stiffs, who has not wondered what it would be like to have a boat load of money and unlimited time to play with it. In a nut shell, great show. I hope it stays on for a long time. It is the only reason I have found to justify paying the outrageous rate they want for cable in our area.
