Each Season is Far Too Short
27 October 2019 | by TheFearmakersSee all my reviews

There should be 10 episodes, not 8. In this case, right when things pick up with what shouldn't be spoiled about Michael Douglas's character, it's over till next season of what's a good show despite the abundant old guy cliches ranging from quips involving Viagra, memories of the baby boomer generation, and the icebreaker of all icebreakers, pot...

This is a sort of hangout/drinking series. Never gets too complicated, the humor is natural, never forced, and while there were a few political anti-Right (who else?) rips, there's something for anyone... with an open mind. Just prepare to be shocked about how certain actors and actresses have aged, including Douglas's Romancing The War of the Jewel Roses co-star Kathleen Turner and new regular Paul Reiser.
