My Boys – The Complete Second & Third Seasons (Sony DVD)


Picture: B-     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Episodes: A-



PJ and the boys are back, back with more laughs, mischief and various ups and downs with their romances on the hit cable TV show My Boys.  On the job, in the bar or at home, through thick and thin there is only one thing they can really count on, and that is the thing they can't live without, the one thing that never changes and holds them together... their friendship.


This set has two seasons-worth of episodes…
Season 2: In the Second Season, PJ's mystery man turns out to be Bobby, things however get strained when he gets engaged... and PJ has yet to confess her feelings to him. As various members of the gang ride up and down their various careers, can they prepare Bobby to leave the honorable ranks of bachelorhood?  Is PJ going to lose one of her boys?
Season 3: After Bobby's near marriage, PJ confesses her hidden feelings toward him and end up as a couple, but for some reason PJ doesn't want the others to know.  As group grows, their jobs improve with various promotions and new opportunities, so does various relationships and romances (sort of), turns out PJ isn't the only one with a hidden romance. How long can they keep a secret before the rest finds out?

This is a comical series about PJ and her friends working and playing in the windy city of Chicago. PJ is young professional female sportswriter, but because of tomboyish ways her main group of friends are mostly male, or better known as her 'boys'.  Her best friend is Stephanie, a budding best-selling author on books for woman and their relationship with men, she also gives PJ advice and various tips when it's about the opposite gender.  The 'boys' are Andy; PJ's married lawyer brother, Brendan; PJ's rockin rollin roommate and bar manager, Mike; is a forever non-commitment skirt chaser, Kenny; is a clumsy friend that’s challenged with girls but later develops a secret relationship with Stephanie, and finally Bobby; is another sportswriter like PJ but comes from very wealthy family and becomes PJ's love interest by the end of season 3.

This was a funny series, the cinematography was beautiful, shot in the beautiful city of Chicago, it was like the series 'Friends' except with fewer females and more males. The main protagonist PJ, shows a good looking, strong, independent young woman. It is because of her interests and career in sports most of her friends are male, and she just likes to hang out and have fun with the 'boys', but in truth (ironically) she still is looking for the love of her life, in essence however... the series sometimes makes it feel like she has a reverse harem going.  The seasons were short in my opinion and ended on cliffhangers, but each one of the episodes fill with interesting, fun and comical situations in which the modern day individual can relate to in various ways.
