Telling most actors that they look fit enough to play a role younger than their real age would be considered a compliment. Unless you're Scott Bakula. This season, on his TNT series Men of a Certain Age, the 56-year-old's character turns 50. And he's actually rather bummed about the idea. ...
Men of a Certain Age turns 2 — the so-called "terrible" stage in life — on Monday. But for the TNT drama, things remain as bittersweet as ever for its leading men as they continue to tackle and tiptoe around middle age.
"It's kind of that never-ending arc that everyone has in life, where you're still trying to get out from under," Ray Romano tells TVGuide.com. "They have a destination they want to get to, but they never ...
Men of a Certain Age
Some guys grow on you the better you get to know them. Take the three best buds of TNT's Men of a Certain Age. When I first met them a year ago, their midlife-crisis angst felt suffocating, the deck stacked against them in heavy-handed downer story lines. But as the first season progressed, it's not so much that life got easier but the shrill tone lightened up considerably (especially at home with Andre Braugher's sad-sack Owen). By the poignant end, I was looking forward to welcoming them back, and I'm happy to say the new episodes don't disappoint.

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, the latest DVD movie in Warner Home Video's series of adaptations of classic DC Comics stories, comes out Sept. 28 (in single disc DVD, two-disc special edition Blu-Ray, digital download and on demand).

Mickey's Pick: Sure, people felt conflicted about the ending of Lost, but it can't be an accident that the academy changed its own rules to allow for the two-and-a-half-hour series finale to be submitted. We're guessing that episode's emotional tone will move enough Emmy voters to reward the show for six innovative seasons. (Only Season 1 received academy attention, when it won this award in 2005.)
Joyce's Pick: Coming off arguably its strongest season yet, Breaking Bad delivered ...

Men of a Certain Age
Men of a Certain Age deals with three men coming to grips with getting older. But for series stars Ray Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula, being older is a key component to their on-screen chemistry.
"We're grown-ups," Braugher told TVGuide.com at the Paley Center for Media event for the series. "As artists, we're just mature. It's all about the work. It's not like we have to prove anything. It's not like we have to...
