Workaholics (comedy central) anyone?

Two episodes have been on so far. It's about 3 slacker friends who are barely scraping by working for a telemarketing agency (I think). They smoke pot, drink a lot of beer and try and get away with doing as little work as possible.

It's quire juvenile and I liked it quite a bit.

The first episode was about all 3 guys needing to pass a drug test at work the day after they all smoked pot.

The 2nd episode was one guy trying to hookup with a girl he had a crush in during HS and him having to come up with LA Clipper tickets to woo her.

I really thought both were good enough for me to keep watching. SP has been set. More of a guy hanging out with his buddies type comedy vs a sit with the wife type comedy. Juvenile humor at it's best.

I really like it too. The main slacker reminds me of the grocery store owner from 10 items or Less. Another weird comedy.

Saw the first one and thought it was not bad. Have the second one recorded but not watched yet. There's a lot of stuff on these days, with Supernatural back, FNL starting, plus new stuff on HBO and most "regular" shows back from hiatus.

I saw the ads for it and went "meh" or actually "yuccho" not for the over 50 female demographic.

You are correct unless you run a medical marijuana dispensary. Then you might like it.

I liked the first one and haven't seen the second. Kind of reminded me of movies like Pineapple Express. Really, sophomoric in the humor, but still made me laugh.

I discovered this show last week and you're right, even tho it's low brow humor, it's REALLY funny. The boss they work for reminds me of Portia De Rossi from Better Off Ted.

I liked this show for the first few episodes, but really, it's the same thing every week and it has gotten old. Think Pineapple Express EVERY week. I'm still watching, but I'm finding it more and more stupid but less and less funny.

I watched the S1 and it got progressively more and more of the same silly sophmoric humor. It's funny at the beginning, but how many drug induced masagonisitic (sp) jokes can you watch until it's just not funny anymore. Didn't watch S2 at all.

Blake Anderson, the wild-haired actor famous for his role in the comedy series Workaholics, was carted to a hospital after a party stunt went terribly awry.

Stunt gone wrong: Blake Anderson underwent surgery to repair his broken back after the roof plunge. Playing to cameras at a house party on Saturday, Mr Anderson vaulted from the roof of the home and onto a beer pong table

I heard the video is on youtube. I cant watch that stuff though.

One of my favorites. Animal House humor never goes out of style.

Yeah I like this show too. I didn't at first but it's grown on me. These guys are hilarious. I like all of the minor characters too. Definitely not a show to watch with the wife though

Came home last night, turned on my DVR and was surprised to see a new episode of this show. I had no idea new episodes were starting up.

Very funny episode. Loved the visuals they were getting and how they looked in reality. Cracked me up

LOL at the "future-babes" when Blake and Ders stole a girl's bike and then used a laser-pointer to knock off most of the gang of girls during the chase scene.

I guess this would be season 3 that started recently.

One thing that I've noticed is that the show is great at following it's own tagline "Get Weird".

I've noticed the storylines continue to get more crazy each season; this wouldn't work for most shows - but it works for this show.

I was almost thinking that someone would have complained about the "Roast" episode...

(spoilerized in case it's waiting to be viewed by anyone).

Spoiler:
...that turned into a staged workplace gunpoint hostage fiasco. It was over-the-top funny.
.

"Real Time" which seemed to be a mini "Workaholics" meets "24" premise was funny as well.

The running gags and chemistry of the cast (which is a pretty good ensemble) make it a winner for me.
