If you are a fan of Arrested Development and The Office, then you will most likely love this show.
This show was a pleasant surprise. ABC doing a 1/2 hour sitcom. Wow. I didn't think ABC knew how to do that anymore, but this show is fresh, funny, creative, unique and entertaining. It's about these four men that carpool to the same office park together. I don't think they work in the same office, though, from what I could gather from the Pilot. It also shows tidbits of their home life to explain why they are the way they are in the car.
This is not your typical "sitcom", and there is no studio audience. The writing of this show is very fresh, unique and creative and it's not a bunch of shtick that you see on most sitcoms. It's truly realistic, awkward and interesting. Each character is a unique stereotype that you can relate to, and their facial expressions and reactions to events are spot on terrific.
I like the direction ABC is going this season, and I look forward to watching more episodes of "Carpoolers" to see how the character's lives develop from what they've set up so far in the Pilot.
I rate this show an 8 out of 10.
