Storyline

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.

The 1 star Reviewers must be cast-offs from the Audition
9 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is fresh and funny, funny funny. The chemistry and tension between Michael Urie and his best friend is tense and crazy. I'm a 48 yr old woman and laugh so hard that my hubby thinks I'm going loony. I enjoy the way the writers go out of their way to make Urie's life-partner an under-the-top gay character instead of a flame. It's not expected which makes for a good and funny surprise. Plus I can see it adding a new direction in gay sit-coms. Good job writers! But I have to say that the darling of the show is Urie. He is effortlessly funny and I can't tell that he's acting. I feel like I'm in the office or apartment with him. I adored him on Ugly Betty and glad to see the network took a chance on him carrying his own show. He reminds me of a male Lucille Ball. Kudos to Partners. Keep up the good work!
