TNT posted a teaser page for their upcoming series Men of A Certain Age. Don’t bother rushing over their site, unless you really want to. All you’re gonna find is the picture that’s above. We were serious when we said it was a teaser. The network ordered 10 episodes for the first season, which, according to the graphic, begins airing this December. That’s a bit of a change as previous reports had a January debut.
According the show’s wikipedia page, “The series follows the bonds of friendship of three college friends, Joe, Owen and Terry, who are now in their 40s. Joe (Ray Romano) is a slightly neurotic divorced father of two (Brittany Curran plays Lucy and Braeden Lemasters plays Albert) who hoped to become a pro golfer but now owns a party store. Owen (Andre Braugher) is an overstressed husband and father, who is a car salesman at his dad’s dealership. Terry (Scott Bakula) is a struggling actor dating a much younger woman.”
Sounds like it could be really funny, so long as it’s done right. Ray Romano co-wrote the pilot script and we’re big fans of all three actors, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed. Romano hasn’t appeared regularly on television since Everybody Loves Raymond. Scott Bakula, who ruled as the elder Bartowski on Chuck, hasn’t been a series regular since Star Trek: Enterprise, though we’re way bigger Quantum Leap fans. Andre Braugher, best known as Baltimore bad-ass Det. Frank Pembleton on Homicide: Life On The Street, also picked up an Emmy for his part in the FX miniseries, Thief. Good to have all three back on the small screen!
Along with being the biggest month of the year for both series and season premiere’s for TV, September is also one of the biggest months for TV on DVD releases. Don’t ask us why. We think it’s kinda stupid to wait until September as, like we’ve already pointed out, the month is crammed with plenty of stuff to watch on TV AND it doesn’t give people much time to catch up before the next season begins, beyond the fact that it’s a wallet-buster. It’s a massive month of overload, in our book.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t still be excited! We’re especially looking forward to Fox’s mind-bending first season of Fringe, the fourth season of The CW’s cult-hit Supernatural (on blu-ray to boot!), Canadian sci-fi lite dramedy Being Erica‘s first season and, of course, the third season of NBC’s comedy giant 30 Rock.
In anticipation of the release of Fringe‘s first season on September 8th, they setup a cool website in which you can enter to win a visit to the show’s set in Vancouver, among other things. Once you enter you can watch a video about the difficulties of filming the episode The Ghost Network and then play a game which, if you answer correctly, gives you five extra entries into that set visit contest. And here’s a little hint for our readers: you may wanna brush up on some episodes of ABC Family’s Greek for some help on the game. Check out the site: Completethepattern.com
