Hol­ly­wood vet­eran michael dou­glas ob­vi­ously had great fun mak­ing this eight-part US sit­com, cre­ated by Emmy win­ner Chuck Lorre, with the equally ev­er­green Alan Arkin. Michael plays for­mer ac­tor turned Los An­ge­les act­ing coach Sandy Komin­sky, who has reg­u­lar run-ins with his agent and best friend, the can­tan­ker­ous Nor­man New­lan­der (Alan). There are plenty of prostate jokes, while much of the fun comes from the gen­er­a­tion gap be­tween Sandy and his ide­al­is­tic twen­tysome­thing stu­dents. But The Komin­sky Method also packs an emo­tional punch as it re­flects on the men’s life­long friend­ship – think Grace and Frankie for guys.
