Comfort Food.
6 June 2015 | by amesmondeSee all my reviews

Chicago lawyers from vastly different backgrounds develop a partnership after they unexpectedly meet in court.

The concept is better than the first episode delivers, that said its still fun. Partners feels clichéd, punchline driven, the production looks cheap and cheerful yet every cliché is its strength as it channels a typical 80's/90's American sitcom complete with awful canned laughter. But that's what's good about it, it's familiarity gives a nostalgia feel. It's Cheers meets Will & Grace and a poor mans Boston Legal to name a few. Kelsey Grammar is perfect as the lawyer you love to hate and Martin Lawrence gives a good performance as the well liked counterpart.

Partners is like comfort food - no matter how bad, you can't help but enjoy it.
