Storyline

Two Chicago lawyers from vastly different backgrounds unexpectedly meet in court as they each face a personal crisis. Marcus Jackson (Martin Lawrence) is a kind-hearted community activist going through a heartbreaking divorce when he meets Allen Braddock (Kelsey Grammer), an elitist lawyer who has just been fired from his father's firm. Brought together by fate and desperation, they develop a partnership and friendship, forcing each other to find the balance between the ethical and the unscrupulous in both their professional and personal lives.

Comfort Food.
6 June 2015 | by (Novelist of The Final Version) – See all my reviews

Chicago lawyers from vastly different backgrounds develop a partnership after they unexpectedly meet in court.

The concept is better than the first episode delivers, that said its still fun. Partners feels clichéd, punchline driven, the production looks cheap and cheerful yet every cliché is its strength as it channels a typical 80's/90's American sitcom complete with awful canned laughter. But that's what's good about it, it's familiarity gives a nostalgia feel. It's Cheers meets Will & Grace and a poor mans Boston Legal to name a few. Kelsey Grammar is perfect as the lawyer you love to hate and Martin Lawrence gives a good performance as the well liked counterpart.

Partners is like comfort food - no matter how bad, you can't help but enjoy it.
