"Workaholics" is a show that really shouldn't work as well as it does. The show is extremely juvenile, stupid, vulgar, and occasionally very unrealistic. Under normal circumstances, these would be criticisms. However, thanks to the three main stars of the series, these qualities make the series oddly endearing. Anders Holm, Adam DeVine, and Blake Anderson are probably not going to be given Emmy Awards for their performances any time in the near future, but what they do on a weekly basis is often funnier and more off-the-wall than anything else on television. There have been several shows about twenty-something guys just hanging out, a fact that "Workaholics" is well aware of and satirizes from time to time. What separates "Workaholics" from all those other "bro" type shows is that "Workaholics" isn't afraid to go to extremely dumb places. In fact, during its best episodes, "Workaholics" is the definition of inspired stupidity. The writers throw so many jokes and references in each 21-minute episode that even if one episode isn't very good, there's always still a number of solid laughs. Miraculously, no matter how dumb the characters may act, the main trio almost always remains likable even if the characters are presented as a bit too naive or stupid at times. Over the past four seasons, "Workaholics" has remained consistently hilarious, something that can't be said for most comedies on television. The show may start to suffer some problems once the characters get older, though for right now the series remains perfectly entertaining for what it is. 8/10
