Storyline

Chicago sports-sage chick P.J. Franklin regularly hosts several same-sports-supporting friends from different walks of life and backgrounds for poker games and hangs out with them, mainly in their regular bar, but also personal events. Her brother Andy joined being bored by married life and legal profession. Their conversations combine the open candor and macho humor of male locker-rooms with the petty details of female tearoom chatter. Written by KGF Vissers

Freaking Fantastic
29 December 2006 | by sleepin_in88See all my reviews

Oh my gosh! I love this show! It has great one liners and is really in its own league. You can't compare another show to it and say it sucks cause it isn't a girlie show. It's called My Boys for a reason and it shows it in each episode. I've followed each episode and find myself laughing every time. I believe it's more family friendly than some shows out there, not every episode is based on sex, maybe gender but not the nasty. It may have it's corny moments but it has a relate-able cause that makes sense to some or maybe a lot of people outside of baseball. It's something I look forward to every Tuesday it's on. It makes me laugh, you may just find yourself with the same feeling.
