| I really wanted to love this reboot, but...
I really don't. Yet. (Full disclosure: Only watched the first episode.) I loved the original series; but times have changed and I don't feel like this series found it's way to the new millennium.

It's like it's trying too hard. Everything feels forced and overplayed; the writing is too sharp edged; the characters rather one-dimensional. The premise of their unease is uncomfortable: What worked when they were newlyweds finding their rhythm feels mired in unhealthy banter as an older couple.

Paul Reiser is brilliant in The Kominsky Method so I think it's mostly the writing at fault here. The actors can only flesh out the characters as much as the page allows....and it's not allowing much. I'm not going to give up yet, I will try a couple more episodes before abandoning ship. I owe it that much.

On a personal note: I REALLY wanted to love this show because I worked as an extra for a few years in the 90's and I was fortunate enough to WORK ON the original series for two different episodes. Loved the experiences (both). Actors were friendly and production staff top-notch and I had fond memories of the experience.

If, after watching more episodes, I feel the need to update to a more positive review, I will. Otherwise, I'll have to sadly let this stand.
