Posted by Maggie May Labels: crush on: 30 Something tv show
I watched 30 Something in my twenties, and now as an official, knee deep thirtysomething can't wait to watch it again through Netflix. I love a good ensemble show or movie more than almost any other kind, where life is messy and the struggles are depicted as clearly as the joy, the failures as well as the success, with plenty of sex, love, fighting, children- the whole shabang. The theme song alone is crush worthy- I love a good opening. I had a crush on Michael, the sometimes arrogant but good looking husband. The casting of this show was perfect and the chemistry between the members believable, warm. Anyone remember when Gary died? Sob! Many of the cast members are now on Brothers and Sisters- another ensemble show with a great cast. Interesting fact: 30 Something was the first show to depict gay male sex.
