Post-college life is this weird transitional period. You’re still young and want to have fun, but ugh, you’ve gotta wake up in the morning and spend eight hours in a cubicle working. It’s the sad reality of life, but man, Comedy Central’s Workaholics lets us know that a work/life balance can be completely awesome. It’s third season premiered on Comedy Central Tuesday night, but Workaholics‘ entire first season is currently on Netflix Instant and it’s a must watch.
Think It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia set in a telemarketing office.
Anders, Adam and Blake are twenty-something best friends who live in their party house while working together at a telemarketing company. They dick around work for eight hours, then come home and use their money for beer, weed, and insane shenanigans. It’s the life we all want to lead. I compare the show to FX’s hit series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia because it constantly borders on totally inappropriate but in the most hilarious ways possible.
Workaholics is loaded with references to our favorite shows and pop culture blurbs. In episode eight, the guys try to capture a pedophile à la To Catch A Predator who they find on a Justin Bieber message board (username: Bieberhole69). This may be my favorite season one episode because it’s so cringe-worthy, yet I can’t stop laughing. Our trio has such a fantastic level of selfishness that when this pedophile is actually kind of cool and can get them into the Penthouse Penthouse (a “much doper” Playboy Mansion where you can pee on the floors), they decide to overlook it for the time being to score with hot girls. It’s horrible and hysterical, which is the comedy I love.
“Did Jamie Foxx and Gabrielle Union just walk in the door? ‘Cause someone’s breaking all the rules.”
If you’re not watching Workaholics, get into it. As the guys would say, this show is tight butthole (that’s a good thing, look it up and watch the show so you’re cool too). Blake, Anders, and Adam are the kind of guys I’d want to be friends with; just being awesome all the time. It’s hard to accept growing up and being in the real world, but Workaholics lets me tap into the extremely immature person I will always be and just laugh a lot. Bummer is Netflix only has season one up for streaming right now, but if you have Comcast Xfinity and log into your online account you can watch season two there. Episodes are available OnDemand so you can catch up, or just tune in Tuesdays at 10:30pm on Comedy Central.
Let’s get weird!
