MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE Season 2 “The Great Escape” Advance Review

MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE returns from its midseason break tonight at 10 PM ET/9 PM CT on TNT. I had the opportunity to review this epsiode in advance and thought it was pretty good. Joe, Owen and Terry are back and still dealing with the same issues. Like some of the episodes from the beginning of the season, the storylines center more around the men individually. In fact, aside from the beginning and end scenes, there is no interaction whatsoever between the men. That is something that I have always enjoyed about this show, the relationship and comfortability between the three men. However, despite this, the show was effective in that it shows how much baggage each man brings to that table they sit around. All of the stuff that goes on when they are not together is why coming together is so very important. Even if no one has a lot of time or when everyone is eager to tell their own story.

Joe is still hanging out with Manfro who is treating his quickly advancing cancer. Joe needs Manfro because the other guys cannot be there for him right now. It is always dangerous to have too much Manfro with Joe who is only barely staying strong to his convictions. Tonight, Joe is thrown another wrench when the children tell him that they think Sonia is going through "the change." It turns out what Sonia is going through is even more painful and puts Joe in a difficult situation. Read More...
