Storyline

Chicago sports-sage chick P.J. Franklin regularly hosts several same-sports-supporting friends from different walks of life and backgrounds for poker games and hangs out with them, mainly in their regular bar, but also personal events. Her brother Andy joined being bored by married life and legal profession. Their conversations combine the open candor and macho humor of male locker-rooms with the petty details of female tearoom chatter. Written by KGF Vissers

Refreshing
12 December 2006 | by chubbywhiteguySee all my reviews

This show will more than likely be called "Sex and the City" for guys, but after 4 shows, it holds up beyond such a comparison. I would call it "Sex and the City that your boyfriend/husband will actually watch without wanting to pull his eyes out", but I don't think that would fit on a billboard promoting the show. No pretense, well written and acted, down to earth relationship comedy that is not forced like most of today's sitcoms. Plus, no laugh track! And who doesn't need a little Jim Gaffigan in their lives?

Give this one a shot. Unlike network TV, you know that TBS will allow all of the episodes to air and give the show a chance to breathe and grow.
