Finding out that their husbands are not just work partners, but have also been romantically involved for the last twenty years, two women with an already strained relationship try to cope with the circumstances together.
A group of friends from Harvard are facing down their forties. With interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with one another. "Friends from College" is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.Written by
The world doesn't need another show about Ivy League alums living in unrealistically big homes in and around New York City. Although I appreciated the skilled acting from most of the cast, and definitely laughed out loud a few times, this show's just so out of touch.
I didn't get the friend chemistry or understand how a group of people who are all so mean to each other could have kept their "friend group" going so long. I also didn't appreciate how the married characters take center stage while their apparently pathetic single friends are basically mere doormats who lend a helping hand (or drugs or fold-out couch) when needed.
The writers just missed so many opportunities to be relevant here, and settled for a slightly raunchier, darker spin on well-worn ground. It's reasonably funny, well-acted, some somewhat clever, but watching it just feels like a waste of time when there is much fresher material available in this Golden Age of TV.
