Storyline

After his wife leaves him for his best friend, John Lacey joins the One Two One Club, a support group for divorced and widowed people. The group consists of its fiery British leader Louise, sleazy Kirk, neurotic Ralph, aged but foxy Mrs. Philbert, and Kate, a red-headed divorcee who presents a possible love interest for John. Over the course of the series, the characters help each other first come to grips with their situation, and then overcome it, often with hilarious results. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindspring.com>

Great until the end
10 August 2003 | by MidNYteStormSee all my reviews

I loved this show from the moment I saw it. It was about a man who's wifes leaves him and attends a support group. The show was great until cast members left. From there on the show lost its humor.
