  • Bowling and an Anniversary are the basis for this second episode. Mike picks up a girl at the bowling alley and brings her home for the night. Mom sets new ground rules for the house. Coach forgets their anniversary and ends up in the dog house.

    Second episode played back to back with the pilot episode on premiere night. Pretty similar to the first episode and still entertaining.

    Mom is not going to let her boys who are 32 and 34 bring home girls to her house. So she sets ground rules forbidding that type of activity. It's Mom and Coach's Anniversary of 39 years. Coach forgets which isn't a real surprise as he forgets a lot, but Mom cuts him no slack. He romances her to get back on her good side which eventually works.

    Coach pleads with Mom on the boys behalf and Mike gets to move to the pool house so he can have lady friends over. For this privilege he gets to clean the pool as well.

    We have been set up to believe that Mom plays on the mens emotions when it is convenient for her. When she loses a bet with the boys the first time she's not willing to pay up. The second time she guilt's them into not making her pay, but then she bets them again right after. I guess this going to be a running theme.

    Again, entertaining but not up to the level of some of the other new and existing comedies already out there. It's pretty raw and basic and not really laugh out loud funny. The characters have potential though so I can see it maybe getting better. Thanks for reading...
