"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

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
