It was Working until the second season!
17 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching the first season of Working on network television. The show was funny, satirical, well-written, and structured to become a success. What happened to it after the first season was a shame and an obvious disaster with cast members like Sarah Knowlton who was great as the Yale graduate working as a secretary. It brought much more truth to the working circumstances and environments that we live and work in. I still think the episode in which Fred Savage's character is believed to be gay after bringing an old college friend to his boss' picnic. When they sing at the piano, you just couldn't help but laugh. I liked the annoying perky secretary and dark, pesimistic colleague too. I missed the funny guy with no work in the second season. I thought the changes were too much. I loved Yvonne Freeman's character as loyal company servant. Too true, it should have stayed as it was. I guess the network wanted to cancel the show so they botched it with terrible decisions and changes. Much like the Working premise itself, they got scared when they saw themselves on television!
