Partners is a comedy that is about a life long bromance between Joe and Louis, two architects who have been friends nearly their entire lives. They are now are business partners, owning their own small architecture firm. Joe is very rational and level headed, following his head over his heart, sometimes a detriment to his relationships. Joe is newly engaged to Ali, a beautiful jewelry designer who brings out the best in him. Louis, in contrast to Joe, is passionate, outspoken and tends to exaggerate in order to make his point. Louis' partner's name is Wyatt, and is a vegan male nurse who is soft spoken and overly understanding. As they live their lives they must find a way to adapt, redefining the bond between them both personally and professionally now that there is an addition of two other important relationships.

Will you Grace us with 9 seasons please (at least)
5 October 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I'm giving this a generous 10 first of all because this is by the creators of Will and Grace, to this day my favorite sitcom of all time, and secondly because I would love another 8 seasons of witty one-liners, characters that grow on you until they've taken such a place in your life (yes, even when you have one) it actually hurts to say goodbye. This starts out as good as Will and Grace did, Jim Burrows came back to the party, now let's hope Wyatt is Jack's distant cousin and Jack and auntie Karen will drop by sometimes. Anyways, Will and Grace references put aside, I think the premise is fairly original, even a great train for the world to get on board with, and a great example for straight boys who may find a friend in a fagela instead of a threat to their "masculinity". Now morality put aside: bring the laughter, giggles and fun.
