Storyline

Alex is recently divorced, and Helen lost her fiance a year ago. Obviously, these two are definitely not ready to be dating again. So naturally, they end up in bed together one night. Oops. And they're co-workers. Double oops. At least they have one thing in common: they're both in need of getting back on the horse again but unable to figure out how. Despite their little romantic encounter, however, they decide to just remain friends. Helen insists this has nothing to do with Alex crying like a baby after sex. And Alex tries to reassure Helen that she'll have no trouble finding a new boyfriend as soon as she removes the pictures of her dead fiance that are all over her apartment. The rest of the office tries to get Alex back out there... but no matter how many terrible shirts they make him buy, he's never going to be a ladies' man. His colleagues aren't actually much help: from the boss who can't wait to hear about Alex's sexual exploits to the eternal "player" who wants Alex as his ... Written by Anonymous

Terrible remake
15 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show is terrifyingly awful... It is not even a shadow of its former self the Free Agents UK series. I would rate Free Agents UK a 6-7. It had a lot of potential and was going places despite some events in the first few episodes that were unbearably awful.

They also removed a key character from the UK version that added a lot of flavor. I enjoyed the creepy quiet guy that made no sense. Screw the writers of the remake that axed him. He might have saved the show but instead they will tank this sinking ship before leaving the bay at the end of their half-season trial run.

This US remake pretty much took what was bad about the UK version and made it worse. The acting is far worse, watch one episode of the UK version and you can see that clearly. Beyond the acting the plot has been dumbed down and the actual point of the show has been taken away. The point was to be more realistic and more raunchy with a sitcom. The idea was to get to the meat of how we really act in real life, the UK version did a very good job of having realistic scenarios with believable characters. The problem with the US version is you can slap on a laugh track and throw in some more one liners and its a straight up traditional crap sitcom.
