This week on Failure to Launch, we raced through Our Thirties, a 2006 sitcom that, like all other sitcoms from the era, was trying to be Friends.
Our Thirties hook was a cast of characters with midlife crises on the horizon, examining what they wanted out of life. Turns out it’s weddings. Weddings weddings weddings, heteronormative pairings and giving their friend who kissed a girl once shit for it decades after it happened.
Also Peter Serafinowicz and Rashida Jones are in it, and thank God this failed so those two could go make something better.
Reviewers: James Ferris, Harry Brimage, Andrew Cherry
Soundboard: Lisa Dib

Peter Serafinowicz and Rashida Jones make up a mere 1/5th of this Friends clone that gave Ferris an aneurism.
