The Kominsky Method

At age 74 Michael Douglas, whom I have loved since his "Jack T. Colton" sliding down the forest hillside in Colombia moment, has a new show playing on Netflix.

The premise is as followed: Michael plays Sandy Kominsky, a once glorious actor turned teacher. His best friend of 47 years and "talent agent" is Norman, played by Alan Arkin. Together they go through life's ups and downs. Douglas is irresponsible, self absorbed, near the line of jerk-ish and Arkin is moody, sad and trying to cope with real life issues. Together, they are kinda the odd couple.

Having said more than enough, on to my Kitty Paws:
One Kitty Paw for Douglas. Love, love, love him!
One Kitty Paw for Arkin.
One Kitty Paw for their great banters and perfect zingers
One Kitty Paw because this show is appropriate for these men and you like them.

At 4 Kitty Paws, I highly recommend it. The first season has 8 episodes that play between 28 to 32 minutes and you can do in one setting.

Be warned though. These are old men, playing old men. If you are looking for slap happy jive this is not your show. This is a show about two old men, trying to get through the day. You will see some of Douglas's favorite pals.

So if you are interested, I suggest cracking open a bottle of your favorite wine, settling in and getting to know these guys.

Fingers crossed there will be more seasons to come.

My husband and I both enjoyed this show watched over 2 nights. We are in our 70s and not many shows are in our demographic. My biggest problem was the Lisa Edelstein character as I recently binge watched 8 seasons of House, and although she was excellent, I just couldn’t not see her as Dr. Cuddy. I also liked the drama students that were cast for his class. What a great opportunity for so many to get exposure.

I just finished it and really enjoyed it also. It is like the male version of Grace and Frankie.

Thank you so much for making me aware of this show! I don’t really keep track of new shows on Netflix, and I would have missed it. I’ve only watched a few episodes, but I am quite enjoying it!
