Michael Douglas plays an actor who made it big a long time ago and who now is an acting coach at his studio named after himself, "The Kominsky Method." His best friend and agent loses his wife to cancer, which leaves both of them questioning their existence as they struggle through choices and relationships, old and new. As Kominsky teaches a class to actors he meets a woman whom he has deep feelings for, but lacks the skills to make a relationship work. Meanwhile his agent struggles with the pain of his wife's death and a drug addicted daughter. Throughout the series it becomes clear that their advanced age has challenges that neither one knows how to overcome, and as they keep onboard this train of life, which is closer to death then ever before, they learn to navigate their way through pain and character growth and set backs.

16 November 2018 | by leftbanker-1See all my reviews

Wonderful! That first episode is going to be a very hard act to follow. It was funny and romantic and sad and thoroughly charming at every turn. What a terrific cast and such a crazy mix of tremendously successful and experienced actors with a bunch of first timers (at least it's the first time I've seen many of them).

It loses some of it's initial steam and charm, goes way overboard on prostate jokes, but it's OK. Spoiler alert (sort of): bot men are creeps when it comes to women and have left two pathetic daughters in their life's wake. They sort of spoiled it by making both men out to be jerks with women. Norman, the uxorious husband is an a-hole with his date at the fundraiser. He was a huge creep and nothing like the sweet guy he was before.
