I'am from Europe and when this show hits the internet here it's Saturday, around 4AM. At that time I'am either buzzing from Friday night out, or I'am down because I spent entire evening at home. In any case I eagerly await to see new episodes after which I go to sleep with happy thoughts. When I review movies there is whole bunch of things I look at, but when I rate a comedy show there is only one valid criteria
does it make me laugh. And Friends with Benefits definitely put a
smile on my face every single time. Comedy itself is a very subjective matter, so I do understand people who aren't so enthusiastic as I am, but still I feel that the reviews here are just too harsh. For the people who are reading these comments and are considering whether to start watching this show; just go ahead, if you do like it you just might get one extra thing to look forward every week. It's worth a shot. Cheers
