Allow yourself to just let go and have fun!
15 August 2011 | by youre_darkSee all my reviews

I'll be honest: I only bothered watching this show for two of its stars, Danneel Ackles and Zach Cregger, and I didn't really expect to enjoy it. The plot sounded unoriginal, and I have very little faith in movie and TV studios to actually bother making things good anymore. That said, I absolutely adore 'Friends with Benefits,' and I think anyone with a sense of humor and no ego will, too.

The show is solid. All its lead actors are adorable and funny, both slapstick and subdued in their humor, and play their roles with a simplicity and honesty that makes them hard to hate. Each episode features a standalone storyline interwoven with the established, budding, and evolving relationships amongst the group of friends, and everything about them is right.

The real reason people don't seem to like this show is, as far as I can tell, that people seem to have very high standards for what they consider comedy. Naturally, there are comedies that are brilliantly crafted instant classics, and 'FWB' isn't one of them. What it is, though, is playful escapism that will make you giggle, if not laugh hysterically, every episode. And, if you're lucky enough to watch it with a friend like I am, the source of endless new inside jokes.

Totes radicchio!
