  • Owen and his wife go to a school function with Joe's ex and her new boyfriend. Joe doesn't go but ends up having dinner with his bookie. Terry is at the function doing the auctioning and running into a teacher he slept with the year before.

    Interesting and somewhat entertaining episode of Men of a Certain Age. There were a few different stories here.

    ***** Spoilers *****

    The first is Owen and his wife double dating with Joe's ex-wife(Penelope Ann Miller) and her new boyfriend. Now that was a little strange in itself. It was very odd that his wife would think that was fine concerning Owen spends time each day with Joe. Very strange! Not only that, but it turns out that the ex was seeing this man before she and Joe separated. I found Owen's reaction not only correct, but very controlled based on the situation. Of course we find out that Joe felt that he was as much to blame as his wife, but we already know that Joe is OCD and has tremendous guilt.

    Terry is also at the function and has a reputation for sleeping with the single women and some married as well. He ends up hooking up with a teacher who he did the year before, but she is now engaged. In the end he does the right thing and doesn't go thru with the hook up.

    Joe decides not to go to the function so he doesn't cause any problems with his ex and her boyfriend. Instead he spends what ends up being a very strange and somewhat depraved night with his bookie!

    An interesting show with some definite potential. I think I like Owen the best of the characters so far, but he needs to watch that Diabetes as it is a killer if not controlled. Thanks for reading...
