Matthew Perry can't catch a break
28 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Ryan King (Matthew Perry) is a sports talk radio host struggling with his wife's death. His assistant Carrie (Allison Miller) has a crush on him. His boss/friend Steven (John Cho) forces him to join a support group led by slightly incompetent Lauren Bennett (Laura Benanti). The group includes Anne (Julie White) who lost her gay partner, Yolanda (Suzy Nakamura) who is sexually closed off, Owen Lewis (Tyler James Williams) whose brother is in a coma, and Sonia (Sarah Baker) who lost her cat.

The Friends curse continues for Matthew Perry. This is actually quite a fun cast. The self-help group is a superior setup. It's an automatic built-in group with chemistry. I really thought this one had a chance. Matthew is being Matthew. It's the group dynamics that's different. They are quirky fun, and each one is worth rooting for. They are more family than acquaintances. There are some great comedic talents showcased. It is really too bad that this didn't get renew. It is not going to be any better for Matthew.
