TV show description:
This comedy TV show looks at how a couple that’s still in love can also be miserable.
Russ Bowman (Nat Faxon) is a freelance graphic designer who is struggling to support his family. He longs for the time when he was just hanging out with his friends, designing surf boards and getting more attention from his wife.
Lina Bowman (Judy Greer) is a stay-at-home mom who often finds herself overwhelmed by the needs of her three children — not to mention the needs of her childlike husband. Although she feels fortunate that she’s gotten the opportunity to be at home with her children, now that they’re all in school, she knows it’s time to figure out the rest of her life.
Russ and Lina can barely remember what life was like before they had kids and debt, and suburbia rained on their romance. However, every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who’s driving carpool, they are reminded what drew them together in the first place — they’re best friends.
And then, there are their other friends. Russ and Lina’s friend AJ (Brett Gelman) is recently divorced and pretending he’s over his wife. Their other friend Jess (Jenny Slate) is married to a much older man who can’t keep up with her.
Episode #23 — The Waiter
Russ and his assistant start to get too close. Lina and AJ work together on a children’s play about the dangers of addiction.
