Three and a half Men!
This is a comedy about a young man who finds comfort (after a catastrophic event at his wedding) in the company of 3, more experienced in life, men. They take him under their wings and they are trying to teach him some bitter truths about women, marriages and relationships.
The situations in the series are over-the-top but they work well enough. Missing the usual laughing track and shot mostly outdoors helps too. It would be terrible if they shot it in a studio with fake laughs.
Tony Shalhoub plays a very not-Monk character who chases young women. Jerry O'Connell plays a doctor and has the more energetic personality and Kal Penn plays the romantic who also has a kid.
The 1/2 man is played by Christopher Nicholas Smith, who is also the narrator, and we see things in his perspective basically, but the whole atmosphere also works like as the audience is part of the group and listens to all that ...concentrate wisdom the guys have to offer!
In the end the show is OK. Not great, not boring either. If you have the time, give it a chance...
