How I fell in love with “Uncoupled”

I will always love the way I fell in love with the Netflix series Uncoupled.

Was spending part of the weekend with my closest friends in Newport Beach and after dinner on Friday, I suggested we catch the first episode or two of Uncoupled. We liked it right away and with each episode, it just got better and better and funnier and sweeter. Next thing we knew it was 1 am and we had watched all eight episodes. The next morning over coffee, we were dishing about the funniest moments, how wonderful the cast is, what could happen in season two.

Neil Patrick Harris is simply wonderful as newly-single Michael – it’s the best role of his long career. Never better. His trio of closest friends includes single mother and straight talker Suzanne (Tisha Campbell) who is Michael’s partner in the multimillion-dollar Manhattan residential real estate biz; the sex-obsessed TV weatherman Billy (Emerson Brooks), and self-deprecating art dealer Stanley (Brooks Ashmanskas). The fabulous Marcia Gay Harden recurs as a wealthy client-turned-friend, and the always good and always handsome Tuc Watkins is in half the episodes as Michael’s ex who breaks up with him after 17 years together.

Watching Michael absorb the shock of the sudden split and navigate his unexpected life as a single gay man dating again in his late 40s takes us into all kinds of situations. Our favorite episode with the biggest comedic moments takes place in a ski resort and we loved the episode with guest star Dan Amboyer as one of new men in Michael’s life. Also loved Gilles Marini as a hot bisexual Italian businessman, Jonah Platt as a thickly-accented German dude, David Burtka as a cute date with an agenda, and Tony winner André De Shields as an elegant gay neighbor.

The comparisons to Sex and the City are obvious but this is its own show and it’s all kinds of fun – and it’s gay!

Check it out for yourself on Netflix and let me know what you think!

    Absolutely loved the series. Only complaint was I immediately needed 8 more episodes.
