      Season 1 – My Boys

      2006 Comedy List
      75% 12 Reviews Tomatometer Tomboyish Chicago newspaper sports reporter P.J. Franklin is quite a catch in most respects. She's smart, funny, friendly and very attractive. Unfortunately, P.J.'s one-of-the-guys personality isn't a big asset when it comes to landing a boyfriend, so she spends most of her time playing poker or just hanging out with her married brother, Andy, and their friends: Kenny, who owns a sports memorabilia shop; Brendan, a hard-rock DJ who often crashes at P.J.'s apartment; Bobby, a sportswriter at another newspaper; and Stephanie, an old college chum who tries to give P.J. some essential dating advice.

      Previous Paul Brownfield Los Angeles Times [T]he show is actually good, quietly so, in that way sitcoms rarely are quiet anymore. Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Brian Lowry Variety Breezy, smart and occasionally funny. Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Tom Shales Washington Post They're not the most unforgettable people anybody ever met, but they jell as a group in the first minutes of the premiere. Spiro isn't comically inventive, but she is definitely cute. Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) It's a great group to hang out with. Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette [A] lackluster "Sex and the City" companion. Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Gloria Goodale Christian Science Monitor The goofy affection of her poker buddies is fun, and the writers steer through some pretty well-mined territory with aplomb.
