Guys with Kids Season 1, Episode 6: Apartment Halloween

Published October 25, 2012 by tiradical20s


The guys try to make Halloween special for their kids, but when the landlord, played by a much skinnier Marisa Jaret-Winokur, says the decorations are not within the fire code, the jig looks like it is up for them.  But, luckily, she finds Chris attractive so he agrees to go on a date with her if Nick and Shelia give friendship a try.

Also, Gary and Marny try to buy the apartment next door when the tenant dies so they can expand and have more room for their kids so they try to chase away potential buyers with scary ghost stories with the help of Yoda and Clark.

American Horror Story because again I would love to see it get a 3rd season, but I’m not worried.

Guys with Kids Season 1, Episode 5: Gary’s Day Off

Published October 19, 2012 by tiradical20s


In this episode, Gary finally gets a day to himself when Marny decides to stay home with the boys one day.  The day off doesn’t go as planned:

  • Chris, Nick and Gary steal a couch out of Nick’s old apartment and try to get Giant’s tickets from Shelia
  • They attempt to go to the game, but Clark ends up in the emergency room
  • Marny realizes that taking care of 4 boys is harder than it looks



Guys with Kids Season 1, Episode 3: Marny Wants A Girl

Published October 4, 2012 by tiradical20s


I almost wish this show was just about Gary and Marny because they are seriously the best part and their kids are fucking hilarious.

In this episode:

  • Marny decides she wants to try for a girl after she snuggles up to Nick and Emily’s daughter, Violet.
  • Nick accidentally drinks Shelia’s breast milk

I love this show because it feels so real!


Guys with Kids Season 1, Episode 2: Chris’ New Girlfriend

Published September 27, 2012 by tiradical20s


Awww this show is really great and adorable and I will continue to back it even if the ratings aren’t good!

In this episode, Gary remembers Marny and his anniversary before she does and tries to milk it for all its worth.

Chris starts dating a new girl who Nick used to date,  Shelia has a hard time dealing with this.

Emily finds out that her first date with Nick wasn’t as special as she remembers it when Jennifer lets it slide that that was their first date as well.

So many good laughs on this show, I especially enjoy Marny and Gary’s children!

Guys with Kids Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published September 13, 2012 by tiradical20s


First Impression:

Looks cute.  That’s about it though….cute.  Looks like another baby comedy, nothing horribly special.


Last Impression:

Wrong! It wasn’t just cute, it was ADORABLE.  Jesse Bradford has been melting my heart since Bring it On, I don’t know about you guys, so it was equally as adorable to see him with a baby nearly as cute as him.  Although there was some predictable humor and dialogue in the pilot episode, I think this show is going to be different than other baby dramas we have seen.

NBC has really been exploring different outlets of comedy this season.  With the groundbreaking The New Normal, we see a surrogate/homosexual couple relationship and in this show we are exploring the against the grain stay at home dad/dad demographic.  I think this is a good thing because families are definitely not black and white like they used to be years ago, and NBC is really doing a good job to convey that to its audience.

The mix between humor and touching moments is really splendidly done in this show.  I loved the “Titanic” scene and the bathroom scene between Anthony Anderson’s character and his wife.  “WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THERE?!” Hahahaha.

Another notable line “You need to chill out, Kareem Abdul Jabbar.”

I am very pleased with this show. 4/5 stars!
