Brad receives bad financial news from his accountant.? And Ross meets with his divorce lawyer, played by guest star Gaffney, who raved about her experience on the show.
?What a fun, fabulous experience,? says Gaffney. ??Working with the ODNT people was sheer joy,? she says. ?I highly recommend it! Plus, they had above-average snacks.?

What can viewers expect this season?

?If season 2 was a souffl?, season 3 is a rich, sweet pound cake.? Episodes run a bit longer, between 10-12 minutes. This season is very story-driven, and delves into the guys? professional lives as well as their love lives.?
