Between shows like Community, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Wilfred, Louie and Futurama, the current world of television comedy sees zany, hyper-reality shows reigning supreme. But every extreme needs a counter-weight. Something that provides a different style and perspective. And this summer, that counter-balance is called Men of A Certain Age. The Ray Romano/Andre Braugher/Scott Bakula dramedy may receive similar critical praise to the aforementioned series, but the show doesn’t have nearly the same sized audience. And that’s a shame since the show is arguably one of the most wholesome, down-to-earth programs on television at the moment. Currently in the tail end of its second season, Men of A Certain Age focuses on three men in their forties trying to cope with the fact that there is now more time behind them than in front. Joe (Romano) is a gambling addicted, divorced, party-store owner who has recently befriended his former bookie. Owen (Braugher) is a car salesman turned dealership manager when his father passes the torch to him with an attached price. And Terry (Bakula), a former actor turned car salesman who can’t seem to maintain a stable relationship. Now that we got the introductions out of the way, let’s get to the reason why you should be watching the series.
