Aaron:

First off when I do reviews on new sitcoms I do not go into the amount of depth as I would on a show like “Community” until it warrants it.

“Men At Work” kicks off about a guy Milo down about his girl having broken up with him for a guy named Paul. Milo’s idiot friends are there to TRY to cheer him up. The show is full of hilarious on liners throughout the whole episode that will make you laugh even though the basic plot has been told many times before. The show feels a bit fast paced but that seems to work just fine.

As I watched the second episode I was impressed by how quickly these characters were growing on me already. This is not the comedic powerhouse that was “That 70’s Show” but its not the short lived “Work It” either. The show can be more compared to “Whitney” only taking place more in a office setting but at times some of the one liners do have you reminiscing about “That 70’s Show”. Overall its a great start to the show and if you looking for good relaxed sitcom Thursday night then keep tuning in as I will be too.

Episode 1:

“We can’t be friends because my friends don’t screw Paul’s”

“Well Alva be dammed”

“No you promise me you’ll put on your big boy pants and come out with the guys tonight”

“Trust me you do not want to have sex with a horse”

“Whorerange”

“I nailed his maid, don’t do it he gets mad”

“Will you be my rebound ass?”

Scott:

I Have To Agree With Aaron’s Statements. I Thought That Men At Work Would Just Be another Quickly Produced, Worthless TBS Comedy, But The Show Surprised me, With It’s High Quality. Men At Work Packs Hundreds Of Laughs in a 30 Minute Time Frame. I Found That The Show had a Solid (And relatable) Storyline. Overall, The Show Is Worth Watching, And I Will Most Likely Become a Fan of It. I recommend That You Check Out Men At Work. Watch Men At Work Live: Thursday’s at 10/9c. On TBS.

Episode 2:

“Don’t Take Your Tore-Up Ass and Go Home.”

“I’m Wearing a Diaper.”

“I Ate a Yankee Candle.”
