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.

Like most comedies, it takes a little time to gel. Sadly it didn't get a chance to.
24 February 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The first couple of episodes of Partners feel a little too manic, like the show is trying too hard to recapture the glory of Will & Grace (both shows share the same creators and a relatively similar premise). Comedy series tend to take a little time to find the right tone and have their cast really develop chemistry with each other, however, and Partners is no different. By the mid-point of the season the cast seem to bounce off of each other effortlessly and the show starts to find its feet as a lighter, more good-natured, modern take on Will & Grace with some genuinely enjoyable episodes. Unfortunately, this was after the show had already been cancelled.

That being said, the show is definitely worth a watch if you can find it and want something light and sweet. The best episodes are generally among the unaired ones ("Pretty Funny" is a pretty funny highlight). David Krumholtz and Michael Urie serve as excellent foils for one another, Sophia Bush is utterly adorable and Brandon Routh manages to mine a lot of humour out of being hunky yet totally naive.
