Retired at 35 is a TV Land sitcom that ran from 2011 to 2012 in the United States. The show revolves around a 35-year-old executive named David who decides to quit his high-pressure job in New York City and move back home to Florida to retire. He moves in with his parents, who have already retired themselves, and quickly learns that retirement is not all it's cracked up to be.

The main character, David, is played by Johnathan McClain. David is a successful executive who has had enough of the stress and pressure that comes with his job. He decides to take a step back from his career and move down to Florida to be closer to his family. Although he is initially excited about his decision to retire early, he soon discovers that life in Florida is not as easy as he thought it would be.

David's parents, Alan and Elaine, are played by legendary actors George Segal and Jessica Walter respectively. Alan and Elaine have retired themselves and are living the good life in their Florida home. However, their peaceful existence is disrupted when their son moves back in with them. They love having David around, but they quickly learn that having an adult child living at home can be challenging.

The show explores the dynamics between the three main characters as they adjust to this new living arrangement. Alan and Elaine are used to having the house to themselves, and they are not sure how to handle having David around all the time. David, on the other hand, is struggling to find his place in this new life. He is used to being in control and making important decisions, and he feels like he has lost his sense of purpose now that he has retired.

Retired at 35 also features a talented supporting cast, including Ryan Michelle Bathe as David's sister, Brandon Barash as David's best friend, and Josh McDermitt as David's co-worker. The show relies heavily on its ensemble cast to create a believable and entertaining world for the characters to inhabit.

The show tackles a number of themes throughout its two-season run. It explores the idea of retirement and what it means to different people. David's parents are content to spend their days golfing and relaxing, but David finds that he needs more stimulation in his life. The show also deals with family dynamics, as the three main characters learn to navigate their relationships with each other in this new environment.

Retired at 35 is a lighthearted comedy that is perfect for fans of traditional sitcoms. The show doesn't rely on gimmicks or over-the-top humor to get laughs.
