Cal learned that his wife Emily cheated on him, whom later wanted divorce. after moving into a new apartment, Cal went to the bar every night, talking loudly to no one in particular about his divorce. he attracted the attention of a young man named Jacob, who was a womanizer that had no difficulty bedding different woman every night. Jacob decided to help Cal by teaching him how to pick up women. things got complicated when Cal successfully seduced Kate, whom he later discovered was his son's teacher.
the plot may felt like some typical family drama, but at some point, it was fun to watch and somewhat awkward when it came to love. as much as Cal and Emily missed each other, they did stuff that said otherwise. the main characters, including Jacob, were difficult to love or agree to. however, the supporting casts, such as Hannah and Robbie, were absolutely lovable! their straightforwardness and consistency made them so much more easier to relate to.
