Workaholics (Comedy Central) --- Series Thread



Anybody else watch this? It pretty much seems like your standard slacker comedy, but I thought it got pretty funny as it went along.

at the guys trying to buy clean urine at the playground.

I need to check this out. The guy with the crazy hair was on Traffic Light and cracked me up.

The kid they were trying to buy urine from, was the drug lord from Tropic Thunder. I really liked this ep, I'm in for the season.

Re: Workaholics -- New Comedy Central Series

Fist of Doom, thank you so much for bringing this show to my attention. I definitely wouldn't have known about it otherwise. Just finished the Pilot and it was hilarious.

Blake was great. Loved him taking a hit of the joint before leaving the apartment.

Kid: "What have you got Hermoine?"
Blake: "Shut up booger-face!"

Boss: "Every employee has tested positive for the following: Marijuana, MDMA, PCP, HGH, Lipitor, Adderall, DayQuil, NyQuil-Why would anyone take both?-Nitrous Oxide, Benzidrine, Valtrex, Flomax, Cialis, and birth control..."

This show was freakin hilarious! I couldn't stop laughing when he smacked the clean urine cup into his buddies face and then when the urine bag was passed underneath the fence -- and of course it broke. Great stuff!

Glad to be of help

The only reason I knew of it was from an article in Maxim (yeah, yeah, I know). I recognized the long-haired guy from Traffic Light, and that's why I checked it out.

Synopsis for tonight's episode, We Be Ballin'

Spoiler:
The guys will stop at nothing to get tickets to a sold-out basketball game, even if it means being dunked in a horchata tank and seeing a grown man's penis.

Can't wait for tonight's episode. It'll be a hilarious hour paired with South Park later this month. Anyone catch the sneak peak after the Donald Trump Roast last month? I thought it was better than last week's and it guest starred Chris Parnell as the CEO.

Re: Workaholics -- New Comedy Central Series

I set up a season pass on my Comcast DVR but it didn't record it. For some reason this show has a 2010 date so "record new only" wouldn't pick it up. Anyone else experience this?

Re: Workaholics -- New Comedy Central Series

Blake is far and away the best character. I like Anders too; Adam can be kind of obnoxious sometimes though. That bear jacket was so ridiculous, but I laughed every time I saw Blake wearing it.

Blake killed me with all of the bad puns and lame jokes...

Blake: "Fur sure. Bitch better have my honey!"

Blake: "If we do this, there's going to be two hits. You hittin' the floor and Kid Rock's Bawitdaba playing in the background."

Adam: "I can't believe you keep your Speedo in the trunk."
Blake: "You never know when there might be a swimergency."

Blake: "First of all, I hope you did enjoy your son's cello recital. I'm sure it was Yo-Yo Mavelous."

Blake's personal hero being Marc Summers.

Adam: "Mike O'Malley would kick Mar cSummers's ass."
Blake: "I Double Dare you to say that again!"

I figured Montez's wife would answer the door, but his son answering it was definitely funnier. Loved how Anders was completely oblivious that the girl was sorta into him.

I think this episode was pretty great, but not quite as good as the Pilot.

Last week's episode was my favorite so far. Adam was awesome with the singing and stress-eating the shrooms.

Saw a commerical for this during last night's South Park. Going by that and that alone, I hate this show and anyone who likes it.

I watched the first ep, and couldn't make it through the second. I don't mind shows with unlikable characters, but they are also not compelling, and the jokes weren't there for me. Oh well.

Re: Workaholics -- New Comedy Central Series

This show is fucking hilarious. I haven't seen any ads because I don't live in 1994 so I can't comment on how it appears to others, but it's really too bad if you can't give it a chance.

Every single episode has been gold.

"Seriously, dude, you got a pretty good dick!"

It's been kind of hit or miss for me so far. Last night's episode was great, though.

I caught the first three episodes on VOD last night, this show is hilarious.

It's very funny with great writing.

I was dying at that line. A buddy of mine was over during that episode, he's hooked now.
