"As a late-fortysomething I'll have to check it out. Maybe it's on Netflix by now. It would be interesting to see what it's like to have male lifelong friends."

TV - Men of a Certain Age?

Hi all, I'm wondering if you've seen the TV show "Men of a Certain Age" with Ray Romano and Scott Bakula? It's not on TV anymore, but it was on TNT I believe, and had great reviews. Basically, its a show about a group of male friends in their 40's.I'm 29, but have recently started watching it. I'm wondering if it's a realistic portrayal of men in the 40's? I'm just curious. I do like the writing.Thanks,EugeneSee More

"That's a bit simplistic, Rick. Yes, while the more people you meet, the more chance you'll find a guy who can or will be great friends, just being "social" doesn't mean you're friends with someone. See other posts in…"

Shane replied to Leto Atreides II's discussion Ferguson Grand Jury Decision in the group The Great Debate
"There's a continuum of force, and cops are authorized to use one level above a perpetrators level in an assault. So if an offender is using fists, you're allowed a baton. If an offender is using a blunt I object as a weapon (intending…"
