Great addition to TVLand
6 December 2013 | by (Rockford) – See all my reviews

"The Exes" is great addition to TVLand's comedy show list. It is the second best sitcom they have had since their hit "Hot in Cleveland." It may not be completely original; the main characters live across the hall from each other, reminiscent of the hit show "Friends", but these characters were brought together by Holly (Kristen Johnston), a divorce lawyer. She brought the three male characters together, Haskell (Wayne Knight), Phil (Donald Faison), and Stuart (David Alan Basche), when she introduced them after representing them in their divorces. She rents them the apartment across the hall from her. Holly's assistant, Eden (Kelly Stables) even lived with her for a short period of time.

The actors were well brought together from shows we used to watch. Kristen Johnston from "3rd Rock From the Sun", Kelly Stables from "Two and a Half Men", Dwayne Knight from "Seinfeld", Donald Faison from "Scrubs", David Alan Basche less known from "The Starter Wife".

The plots are pretty simple, they relate to divorce and dating, and poke fun at the stereotypical roles the characters play. Viewers may start the show thinking, "I wish I had a life like that," to finishing the show with a laugh and thinking, "I'm glad my life isn't that way." Holly was career driven as a young woman, and has a successful career, but is unsuccessful in her love life as a middle-aged woman. Eden is a pint-sized, care-free single young woman having fun. Phil is the playboy of the group, always with a different woman, and as much fun as he is having, he started having feelings for Eden. Haskell is a lazy, overweight middle-aged man, who spends much of his time on his laptop. He is the funny guy of the group and is outgoing, but never gets a lady. Stuart is the touchy-feely one of the group. He's a dentist and is very proud of this small practice. He isn't completely over his ex, but with the help of the guys is trying to get into dating.

Overall, this is a simple comedy that brought a few good actors we knew from previous sitcoms together in an attempt to get a few laughs out of its viewers.
