Would be nice if you included some info for those who click on the link out of curiosity. biggrin.gif

I watched a couple of episodes. It's good but it's still kind of cheesy American sit-com stuff. There's no subtly, it's theatrical like a lot of American shows like the Big Bang Theory or 2 and a Half Men where they spell out the jokes. And the version I downloaded had ad-breaks every two minutes. I don't know what was with that.

On the plus side, there are some jokes there that will make you laugh. It's a little quirky and a little different. It seems like a show that wants to move away from the shows I mentioned above but again it's a comedy where you really have to bend the rules of reality to laugh at the jokes.

It's pop culture jokes for the 25-30 year old American males who grew up in the suburbs. It's right up my alley.

If fit the demographic too. Aren't the actors all mainly established comedians as well. Well the long haired dude is any way. Out of what I watched the best episode I seen is when the CEO of the company they work for is wants to pay the boys money to kill them so they bring him to a party to cheer him up.

This show is hilarious. I re-watched S1-2 and finished S3 recently. "Comedy" series rarely make me laugh but this one has me rolling all the time. The pedo, tripping mushrooms in the office and ninja turtles eps were gold.

Scrimmage Firing was one of the best, hands down...

Pumped full of plastic, is a classic...

Hmmm, I'm not sure. Haven't had Netflix in awhile. It is free on Amazon Prime though.

I don't think it's for everyone, I still hear a lot of hate on the show lol. It actually took me awhile to get into it myself, I thought it sucked at first haha, but I'm so glad I finally got into it.

 

The episodes are pretty independent from one another, but I would still recommend starting around the beginning of season 1. My personal favorite episode is "Office Campout" and would definitely say that's a good place to start :D

I think I'm at episode three, and it's grown on me. Marc Summers can have that effect. LOL! It's like parks and rec where I try my HARDEST not to laugh once, and there is always at least ONE part that cracks me up, and that is hard to do.

 

It's not Always sunny funny (to me...) but it's CLOSE.
