True friends
22 December 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This show has potential. The characters have personality and a certain reality about them, you feel like they could be people you know.

Ray Romano's character bring's out the best of him. I saw him on The Last Word recently which portrayed him as depressive and his sense of humour really blooms with this type of character.

The way the three friends interact with each other shows their familiarity and brings you into the bond they share. I like how the show doesn't concentrate on one demographic and the three friends have very different lives (which friends often do). I see this show relating to many people and bringing a broad audience.

I would like to see more of this show to see where they take the characters. Although I am younger than the guys I find I can still see them as real people in my community.
