I Was Definitely Glad To See That Men At Work Had Made It Back To TBS! This Became One Of My Favorite, Quirky Shows, That Seemed Like It Would Be Dull At First. However, There’s Quite A Bit Of Story, And Many Relate-able Characters In The Show. This Scripted Comedy Has Gotten A Lot Of Hate, Throughout It’s First Season, However, I Think That It Has Done Quite Well. Overall, This Is A Fun Comedy That I Would Like To See Last For A While.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Men At Work Was Great (As Usual)! Tonight’s Episode Was Hilarious, It Packed Non-Stop Laughs Throughout. I Like How The Awkward Gibbs/Tyler Friendship Was Focused On In Tonight’s Episode. The Series Has A Faint Plot Progression, Which Is Milo’s Search For The Perfect Woman. The Show Is Great, Because You Can Basically Jump In At Any Point In The Series, And Still Understand The Story. This Show Is Magnificent, And If I’m Not Mistaken, It’s Already Been Renewed For A Second Season. Overall, I Would Highly Recommend Men At Work. Watch Men At Work Live: Thursday’s At 10/9C. On TBS.

Final Thoughts:
Men at Work is a great half hour comedy filled with hilarious one liners that will have you laughing and using them yourself later.
Watch “Men at Work” Live Thursday’s at 10/9c on TBS

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.”
