Storyline

Chicago sports-sage chick P.J. Franklin regularly hosts several same-sports-supporting friends from different walks of life and backgrounds for poker games and hangs out with them, mainly in their regular bar, but also personal events. Her brother Andy joined being bored by married life and legal profession. Their conversations combine the open candor and macho humor of male locker-rooms with the petty details of female tearoom chatter. Written by KGF Vissers

Witty show with likable cast
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are very few shows that are popular amongst men and women, but "my boys" is a rare breed. Its a show about dating and relationships, the main character is a woman, but the twist is shes a sports writer who has guy best friends and uses sports analogies to explain everything.

It really takes three things to make a good show: 1, a funny concept. 2, witty writing. 3, likable characters. "my boys" hits on all three.

The main actress is cute in a normal-girl kind of way, and is very funny, and i hate to keep using the same word, but shes just naturally likable. If she existed in real life, you'd want to be her friend. All the actors/actresses have good chemistry, and the stories so far have been solid as well. If this show were on NBC, it would on Thursday night right after the Office. I gotta hand it to Turner, after the Closer quickly turned into one of the best crime dramas on TV last season, My boys is definitely one of the top comedies this season. Also, its a show you can watch with your significant other and both enjoy it. I definitely suggest giving "my boys" a chance.
