Another marriage/relationships sitcom that tries mildly to be different.
23 January 2015 | by (the Edge of the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

The cast of "Togetherness" consists mainly of actors who are known from other comedies, playing secondary roles like Mark Duplass ("The Mindy Project"), Melanie Lynskey ("Two and a Half Men"'s Rose) and Amanda Peet who among other TV shows had a small breakthrough to the big screen with comedies such as "The Whole Nine Yards".

Nothing original about the premise of Togetherness. A married couple with kid(s), a loser (and stereotypically fat) best friend who sleeps on their couch, a sister who doesn't know what she wants to do with her life and her biological clock is ticking for a solid relationship...

So, how is this any different from the thousands other sitcoms of present, past and future? Well...it isn't...by much.

It tries to be more "sexual oriented". The problems of marital sex, secret desires, the need for ...self satisfaction etc.

You even get to see Amanda Peet's naked breasts for at least ...5 Mississippis, and Mark Duplass's ...(well the 3 last letters of his surname)!

Thankfully those nude/sex scenes aren't ridiculous. They didn't went for the laughs. The goal of the producers wasn't (obviously) to make it look "sensual" or "spicy" either. It seems to me like they are trying to bring up the loneliness everyone feels nowadays, even if he or she are surrounded by people. A symbolism of lost hopes too. I think that's why they preferred the title "Togetherness" instead of "Bret & Michelle" or something. Everyone needs someone to be close to.
