A comedy panel game in which being Quite Interesting is more important than being right. Stephen Fry is joined each week by four comedians to share anecdotes and trivia, and maybe answer some questions as well.
OK at first glance Grumpy Old Men does not sound like a promising title for a television show. However Grumpy Old Men is a relatively funny show, with a few home truths. Ten years ago it was possible for me to use a remote control with little to no care, and it would work. Now I am in my thirties, and I need to have a degree in Rocket Science to work my bloody DVD recorder. The older I am getting, the grumpier I feel. Phew if you are in middle thirties, and you notice there is change, but you don't know what you are turning into; then the contributors of Grumpy Old Men can help to answer some of those questions. I am telling you ladies, being a man in his thirties, my mid life crisis isn't about dating super models and driving sport cars. Yes the air has gone out of the tyre, yet that excessive air has managed to make its way to my stomach, and now I am a cynic. I am not a cynic, just my heart is not in it.
Back to the show. I think it is about time, there is a show that deals with a man's perception of the world, especially when it comes to the lousy aging process. If you hit the mid thirties, and you feel that the world has done you wrong, then Grumpy Old Men is for you. Grumpy Old Men certainly deserves a 9 out 10.
