Have you seen our latest?

We’d love for you to share your feelings about our latest TV series, Five Wise Guys. Let us know if what we’re talking about has meaning for you. Please leave a comment letting us know what you’d love to hear about in future episodes.


Now TAP members and visitors can look in on a group of interesting older guys — actors, writers, storytellers all — as they kibbitz about life in The Third Act. Five Wise Guys is the Project’s first TV show and features writer and TAP co-founder Sam Bittman; actor Jeff Kent; bookman and storyteller Matthew Tannenbaum; author and playwright Daniel Klein; and actor Bob Lohbauer as they ruminate on the realities of later life. What’s beautiful and moving is that these guys are open, compassionate and caring men. And even when the conversation gets a little serious, humor is never far away. They’re a hoot to listen in on.

Your thoughts about Have you seen our latest?

  1. I have just watched the first 3 episodes of Five Wise Guys, and I loved them! First of all, you guys are all articulate, interesting, and funny people who truly care about each other…and it shows.

    In your discussions, you are touching on the truths, fears, and wonderments of aging – what we think about as we grow old and approach the swan songs of our lives – with candor, honesty, humor, and poignancy.

    All of you are profound as well as down to earth as you speak for everyman about thoughts related to life, purpose, meaning, and death (and also in many cases, you are speaking for everywoman, as many of the issues are not gender specific).

    Your respect for each other is apparent, as is your genuine interest in what the others think about whatever topic Sam brings to the table.

    I stopped watching for tonight because I want to save some episodes for another day (and because, as an aging person, I can’t stay up late most nights!).

    I think you are onto something valuable with this project. You’re creating a “community” that others can relate to, and that would have widespread appeal to many of our aging contemporaries.

    I hope you find Netflix (or someone) who is interested in funding and publicizing your project. And if not, well…still you are thoroughly enjoying the time together.

    I’m having fun imagining what it would be like to have similar discussions about women-specific aging issues with old friends of mine. What a total blast it would be!!

  2. Sam, you made the pants just right!

    The five wise guys had a sixth person sharing feelings about illness and friendship… me! And every viewer who tuned in to the second program. It was a quantum leap from the pilot insofar as creating a compelling connection between the viewer and the storyline.

    Please keep reading my posts. I am enriched by our connection.

    One of the men you can sit down and cry with,

  3. 68, retired eleven months, cancer survivor, fellow Housatonic resident, married 46 years, two daughters, PhD in philosophy and Masters of social work, son of two holocaust survivors, and many other defining attributes. Just finished watching all six episodes, laughing out loud and crying. Thank you. It is a great concept/show
