Kind of like Workaholics, but better... and in New York
14 February 2014 | by goerge12344See all my reviews

I'm a fan of Workaholics--though that show has been going downhill--so I saw this show because it happened to come on right afterward. It was a very pleasant surprise.

It's like a female version of Workaholics, but smarter. Ilana's idiosyncrasies are very funny, and Abbi is a nice not-too-serious foil for her. Lincoln is Ilana's lover and dentist, and is also funny and a regular on the show.

The only 1 star review that I can take somewhat seriously is the one where you can tell they watched the show. But the show must be too fast paced for them. Neither of the girls is bulimic, and the show never hints at this at all. Ilana was throwing up because they'd been drinking heavily, and she was actually going to eat pizza afterward, and not before as a bulimic would... If these obvious details go over your head, you definitely won't catch the subtleties that make this show great.

I'd be shocked if they didn't get renewed for another season. If you like slacker comedy, don't live in a cave, and can keep up with everything that's going on, you should be able to appreciate and enjoy this show.

Oh, and if the locksmith in episode 3 looked familiar, it's probably because you played GTA V. It's literally Trevor!
