Should Have Gotten More Seasons!
28 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I quite enjoyed this (much too short-lived) series and was sad when it had come to an end. The one and only season consisted of thirteen 40-ish minute episodes and I for one found myself having a hard time trying to pace myself and not over-indulging by finishing the series off in a night or two because by the first episode I really liked it and knew there would only be 12 more episodes to go and I didn't want it to be over too fast. This series, despite its "hour-long" setting, is far more comedy than drama. The drama mostly revolves around whatever client they're trying to crack that current week (episode) with some very light personal drama thrown in for good measure but even amidst the drama, its for the most part, comedic drama.

The main cast is great together and seem like they're just having fun all the time which makes it all that more enjoyable to watch. At the core of this show is two long-time friends and creative Ad Agency partners, Mason Maguire and Conner (who, for whatever reason throughout the entire series never has a last name revealed and they make sure you notice it) played by Canadian funny-men Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) and Tom Cavanagh (The Flash). McCormack's Mason is the responsible partner of the two. He's got the house, the wife, the kids, and takes his work seriously. For the most part, at least. Mason's largest challenge usually revolves around wrangling in his partner, Conner, who, although arguably a genius at it, would rather be out enjoying life rather than working. He's a bit of a slacker (though can and does "bring it home" when he needs to) and enjoys his worry-free bachelor lifestyle. Cavanagh delivers rapid-fire dialogue and oozes charm and charisma every scene he's in. The two bickering besties prove to be perfect sparring partners in their scenes together and always leave you wanting more.

Aside from Mason and Conner you also have Sarah (Monica Potter), recently divorced and even more recently just hired on to the firm that Mason and Conner work for. Sarah is more or less swept under the rug in just about every aspect of her job though she isn't about to let it go unnoticed and will basically complain about whatever it is she has to complain about that week all episode long. Potter does a good enough job for it though that you don't (at least I don't) find it annoying at all. She's the underdog newcomer of the group while Mason and Conner are the show ponies but she knows she's just as talented as them. The only problem? Her personality. Not a lot of people like her or get along with her, though she does pretty quickly come to fit in well with her new colleagues.

All in all I thought this show was pretty great and I'm surprised it got canceled after just one season! I for one would have loved to see more. I guess that leaves me with little choice than to do a re- watch every now and again when I want something light and funny and worth 42 minutes of my time.
