This is a very cute and fun show that made me laugh out
loud several times. I've never watched "The Hangover"
movies, but Imagine they're similar to this (only with more
sex). The show is about three guys in their 20's who
move in together after graduating from college. They seem
like lovable losers who don't know what they want to do with
their lives. Jack Cutmore-Scott plays Cooper, the star of
the show who narrates and talks to us. There's a cute
girl across the hall that becomes his friend (and possibly
more). His older brother also drops by a lot and is part of
Describing a show like this doesn't really tell you how
funny it is. Based on the first episode, I say it's pretty
funny. You'll have to check it out for yourself to see if
you agree. I think it's a fresh and original take on the
guys-hanging-out sitcom idea.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a friend who has made all
the mistakes in life there are to make, and then tells you
exactly where he went wrong, so you don't have to? COOPER
BARRETT’S GUIDE TO SURVIVING LIFE is a new comedy that
explores what we all go through on our way to figuring out
what life is all about.
COOPER BARRETT (Jack Cutmore-Scott, “Kingsman: The Secret
Service”) still doesn't have the job he wants; he's
accidently fallen in love with his across-the-hall neighbor,
KELLY BISHOP (Meaghan Rath, “Being Human”); one of his
roommates, NEAL (Charlie Saxton, “Betas,” “Hung”), just
can’t seem to dump his bodybuilder girlfriend; his other
roommate, BARRY (James Earl, “Ground Floor,” “Glee”), is a
“loveable jackass” who can’t stop getting into trouble; and
his 40-year-old-brother, JOSH (Justin Bartha, “The New
Normal,” “The Hangover” franchise) is constantly popping in
to hang with the fellas and get some peace from his wife,
LESLIE (Liza Lapira), and their two kids. The one thing they
do have is each other.
As Cooper struggles to survive each of life’s many
challenges – a night in jail, an inappropriate text he never
should have sent, an ill-advised household pet – he will
guide us through the often-messy, always-hilarious ordeal,
so that our lives don’t have to be nearly the entertaining
disaster that Cooper’s is turning out to be.
