Storyline

"Free Agents" is a crooked, romantic comedy that explores the trials and tribulations of finding love and companionship - the second time around. Hank Azaria ("The Simpsons," "Huff") stars as newly divorced Alex, who is missing his kids and trying to keep himself together. Alex's co-worker Helen (Kathryn Hahn, "Hung") thinks she has it together, but she drinks too much in order to cope with her fiance's untimely death. It's no surprise then when these two overworked PR executives share an ill-fated night of passion and are forced to cope with the awkward aftermath. Thus begins the journey of two lost and emotionally damaged souls in search of happiness. Joining the cause is an array of co-workers who are both helpful and meddling at the same time. Stephen (Anthony Head, "Merlin," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") is the office boss who is concerned about Alex's emotional stability, yet needs him to focus on his work; Dan (Mo Mandel, "Love Bites," "Modern Family") is a bachelor in search of ...

Another nail in the British sitcom's coffin.
28 June 2015 | by StormSworderSee all my reviews

Three single people attempt to find love in the big wide world. Sounds kind of like "Game On", except with one crucial difference. It doesn't have any jokes in it.

When the best thing about a TV show is the title sequence, you know something's wrong. Yes, welcome to comedy for undemanding 8-year-olds and the simple-minded. Laugh until your ribs ache at the repeated f-words and c-words. Split your sides at the on-the-nose crude 'dirty talk'. This is what seems to pass for comedy these days - all stylish opening sequences, big-name actors and no humour whatsoever. I can't honestly blame the three leads, who all deserve better, for this. I'd like to see the greatest actors in history salvage this train-wreck.
