Age is nothing but a number — until that number gets too big to ignore.

Netflix released the first trailer for "The Kominsky Method," a comedy created by Chuck Lorre (of "The Big Bang Theory) and starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin as elderly best friends in Los Angeles.

"You know I wake up every morning, my first thought is, I wonder what part of me is not working today,” sighs Norman Newlander (Arkin).

Sandy Kominsky (Douglas) sadly replies, “Yeah, we are passengers on boats slowly sinking."
