Sportin' Some Wit!, 29 November 2006
Author: deedramatic from No. County San Diego, CA, USA

I'm very excited about this show!! I love the first two episodes. Witty, pretty and sporty. I've been in withdrawals since HBO has nothing new or (even renewed) this season. The network stuff is mostly flat (except Thursdays) and tries too hard now to be like HBO, then each show ends up as another rehash of either Friends, Thirty Something or XFiles.

In this new comedy series, the actors are all fresh, not yet famous faces, but well versed in TV appearances. The writers are also fresh and seemingly not jaded, while both the directors have excellent resumes that juxtapose each other well with TV drama and comedy experience.

PJ is the girl that is just one of the guys. She's easygoing, sporty hip, smart and sexy in an ungirly kind of way. She's kind of a tomboy Kate Hudson. PJ (Pamela Jo, Paula Jean?) hangs with the guys mostly and also works in a guys world (sportswriter for the Chicago Sun Times), PJ does have her girlier best friend, Samantha, on the side (she doesn't really hang with PJ's "boys" it seems) who probably will do the advertising for all the hipster clothing (and apparently plug internet dating sites).

I assume the poker games happen every week, so it's a way to keep track of the time going by?

All the"boys" characters are okay so far--real enough (believe me) and two of them cute enough to keep me watching. I hope each guy character does not get too contrived or personalities get too over the top to fall into typical sit-com guy stereotype (it may be too soon to tell though). OK, so the brother character is that already, but...I still laughed. PJ's bro, Andy, is also the most recognizable and experienced of the cast so he may be there as the grounding force of the group.

So... certain things still often can happen to a girl that hangs with the guys--especially when a couple of them are pretty hot. There should be enough material there to spread out over many seasons and I think they've made a good establishing start of it. I look forward to the next 7 shows and if material gets thin, I can probably get plenty enough for another season out of my journals!!!

I hope there are enough girls like me out there that can relate enough to keep this show going and enough guys out there that can hang as well.

Husband had one comment though--he wonders if the show will play too much on the sexual tension/unrequited lust that is the nucleus of, for example, The Office, and he hopes the show doesn't rely so much on that between PJ and Bobby. We want to see PJ keep movin' on and thru experiences, but not just a tomboy Carrie, please.

I also the love all the underground music references such as the Waco Bros. Nice to have a good forum to turn people on to something better than mainstream music. There is always the danger of sliding that bar too far ( I quit liking U2 and REM around 1988), but it's a good thing that people figure out there is more music out there than the Billboard Top 100 and classic rock.

My Boys has great potential--it's my new favorite show.
