Episode 1: “Inventing Milo”

Episode Notes/Recap:

  • Tyler Is Able To Land A Photo Shoot With Shepard Peters. Shepard Peters Is A Famous Photographer. He Is Also Tyler And Gibbs’s Idol.
  • Milo Begins Thinking Of An Invention To Present To A Wealthy Businessman, Who Is A Friend Of Neal.
  • Milo Shows Neal his Invention, “The Sleepweight”. “The Sleepweight” Is A Weighted Armor Like Piece Of Clothing, That A Person Would Wear While They’re Sleeping. As They Toss And Turn During The Night, They Will Work Out Their Core (Due To The Extra Weight Provided By “The Sleepweight) And Gain More Muscle Tone/Lose Weight. (Or So Milo Thinks.)
  • Shepard Arrives At The Office.

  • Neal Takes “The Sleepweight” Home To Continue Using It. Neal Awakens With A Severely Injured Back. Neal Is Wearing “The Sleepweight”, He Can’t Move Due To His Injured Back, And Milo Is Currently Meeting With The Businessman To Discuss Him Investing In “The Sleepweight”. This Is A Problem, Because Milo Has No Extensive Knowledge In Marketing/Business, Neal Was Supposed To Discuss Those Terms With The Businessman.
  • Gibbs Apologizes To Tyler, And They Ultimately Become Friends Again. Gibbs Is Also Able To Convince Shepard To Do The Photo-Shoot.
  • While Speaking With The Businessman, Milo Begins To Wonder Why Neal Hasn’t Showed Up Yet. Milo Then Realizes That Neal IS Most Likely Stuck In “The Sleepweight”. Milo Rushes Over To Neal’s Place, And Finds Him Lying In The Bed, With An Injured Back. While Trying To Lift Neal Out Of The Bed, Milo Throws Out His Own Back, Which Results In Neal Falling On Top Of Him. Both Neal And Milo Are Now Trapped/Stuck.

Tonight’s Season Finale Of Men At Work Was Great! Tonight’s Finale Really Focused More On The Storyline (Milo’s Attempt To Get Over Lisa), Rather Than Strictly Focusing On the Show’s Jokes And Comedy, Which Is Very Satisfying. Tonight’s Finale Did Pack The Laughs However, So There’s No Lack Of Comedy. I’m Really Intereseted To See Where Milo And Lisa’s Relationship Is Going. I Feel That The Show Is Slowly Building A Much Stronger Plot/Backstory, Which Is Making Me An Even Bigger Fan. Overall, I Would Definitely Suggest That You Catch Up On Season 1 Of Men At Work, And Be Prepared To Check Out Season 2 When It Returns Next Year, As I Expect It To Be Even Better Than This Season.

Side-Note: Be Sure To Catch An All New Season Of Men At Work, When It Airs Next Summer, Only On TBS.

Tonight’s Episode Of Men At Work Was Hilarious And Entertaining, As Usual. The Show Continues To Make Laugh Every Week, And It Has A Faint Main Plot. The Two Combinations Make The Show Great, And Easy To Start Watching At Any Point In The Season. The Show Makes MAny Movie And Tv References, Which Will Make Anyone Laugh. I’ve Become A Huge Fan Of This Unknown Network Comedy. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Men At Work. Watch Men At Work Live: Thursday’s At 10/9c. On TBS.

Sidenote: Be Sure To Catch The Final Two Men At Work Episodes Of The Season: Next Thursday Starting At 10/9c. On TBS. (And Be Sure To Catch Season 2 Of Men At Work, When It Airs Next Year.)

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.

I Apologize For The Short Recap, And Lack Of Quotes. Tonight’s Episode Was Relatively Simple, And It Lacked Details, Which Made The Notes Short. As For The Series, I’ve Enjoyed Men At Work Since The Pilot. The Show Is Able To Throw Hundreds Of Laughs Into A 30 Minute Time Frame. This Is The Kind Of Show That Will Have You Laughing Hysterically. Along With Comedy, Each Episode Has An Interesting Plot. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Men At Work. Watch Men At Work Live: Thursday’s At 10/9C. On TBS.
