CBS compared to NBC does a great job in putting on good entertaining television. However, this show is no where near good or entertaining. CBS be careful and not go down the dark hole that NBC seems to be pulling all of it's shows from. I hope this show get's the ax quickly.
I have to admit the moment i saw episode one i hated it but then i gave it a 2nd chance and was watching the other episodes ! by far entertaining it gives you that vibe of those days when we used to watch Will and Grace , Friends , 3rd rock from the sun... etc those shows where it wasn't about dirty jokes that made it funny.
It is similar to will and grace ! HE IS THE CREATOR OF WILL AND GRACE AFTER ALL IT CAN BE SIMILAR ! Its like a new century for will and grace. Characters grow on you the more you see and my BF were laughing at the jokes so much.
What happen? Why? I loved Partners since the beginning. I dvr it cause I work when it's on and realized yesterday I haven't seen it lately, so I looked it up and NOOO!!!! Are you serious? Michael Urie is hilarious! Thank God I still have The New Normal, love that show!!
Sometimes i can relate to them and it was really great entertainment. Yes I repeat GREAT!!!. Sometimes shows just have to be entertaining. Not all shows have to be nonsense with nothing but bad examples to be on air. Screw the ratings, get this show back.
this was a good show my wife and i loved it and it gets canceled it's sad that a show like this that reaches back to 90's sitcoms gets the ax and crappy shows like mike and molly are still on who really wants to see the misadventures of fat people like seriously ...
Does it have a laugh track? YES. So what? Is one of the main characters basically Jack McFarland from Will & Grace? YES. But you know what? I miss Will & Grace! I miss Friends and 90's shows like this one. It's a sitcom people, it's supposed to make you laugh and this show does it for me :)
Total overacting. One of the most unlikable characters I've seen in recent years...the overtly gay character, Louis. Completely unrealistic relationship scenarios. There is no way in hell in real life that Brandon Routh would date that insulting, obnoxious little queen. NO WAY! Also, Sophia Bush is hot. Her relationship is also a stretch, but she seems like a guy's girl. Joe is a nice enough and successful enough and attentive enough guy where their relationship might be plausible in reality. If I had my way...I'd ditch the gay guy and recast him, because I think he ruins the show. It's like this....YOU AIN'T JACK from Will & Grace HONEY...AND YOU AIN'T EVER GONNA BE! I really don't think this show stands a chance. Guess Sophia Bush is going to have find another vehicle where she's the star. She's very likable. I just don't like her in this show, in these scenarios with these people. Nuff said!
This show is my new guilty pleasure. Sometimes some of the situations are too silly to digest, but other times it sells -- especially when it involves Louis. I dunno ... unlike other people's comments here I actually like Louis. Maybe 'cos I have a co-worker who is SO much like him. And really, is it so bad that he's so much like Jack in Will & Grace? I miss that show.
Louis here is definitely more likeable than the lead gay guy in The New Normal. I really can't believe this scored lower than that show -- that one tries to make a statement but ... ugh. Bryan there has no redeeming qualities. This is a sitcom so Louis' character is forgiveable 'cos it's really not supposed to be taken seriously.
Brandon Routh is effective as the boyfriend here (eyecandy!). As for Sophia Bush .. sorry girl, beauty + comedy are hard things to mix.
I hope this show makes the cut, I signed up just so I could write a review for this. Give it a chance, people. If you like 2 Broke Girls, you might like this as well? (Twas my guilty pleasure laste year.)
The (loud) laugh track still makes the show feel dated, but as of the second episode, I think it's showing more promise. A problem I had with the pilot was how unlikable Louis was, and while he is still unlikable, it now feels intentional, which I guess makes it sort of okay.
A big plus was that the second episode was actually funny, at least in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, it has a lot of growing to do, but the jokes worked. Even though some of it were things I am a little embarrassed I laughed so hard for. Such as Louis putting on sunglasses when he didn't want to look Joe in the eyes. I don't feel invested in the characters yet, but I can kind of feel myself getting there. I'll get back to you by the four episode mark. I don't usually make reviews before then, but for some reason, I felt like I should defend this show a bit.
Despite the consistently great shows that CBS puts on the air, this one never should have made it this far. There are jokes that simply aren't funny and there is not one character that was remarkably entertaining. Most sitcoms have at least one breakout character that you see glimpses of in the first episode... "Partners" didn't have one. Bad jokes, unmemorable characters, "Partners" won't be lasting very long.
I'm watching a lot of shows this fall season, and unfortunately, "Partners" is the first one that I won't be watching the next episode of.
I don't know what I expected but I know what I got. A show that reuses the concept of so many shows, that actually uses a "live" audience to show the viewer where to laugh and where to feel empathy and even worse, the gay guy, it's 2012,haven't we gotten further than the stereotypical gay guy a'la Queer Eye For The Straight Guy?
I just finished watching and it seems like someone (gee I wonder who) decided to have Jack and Will be business partners. And have Will actually married to Grace. And to make Jack's "wife" be an actually boyfriend who instead of being incredibly rich... incredibly good looking.
And instead of a housekeeper, Rosario 2.0 is now a sassy talking secretary.
I think for this reason, this show will find a hard time building a loyal audience. We've seen this all before and done much better!
The Show was absolutely dreadful. Bad script and even worse dialogues.Brandon routh and Sophia bush were hardly there.Show has no zest and was in no way funny.Wont be surprised if they cancel after a couple more episodes.
I dont know what to think of the pilot, it took a while for the story to develop but that's expected. i enjoyed men with kids, and the new normal were better right off the get go. looking forward to the next one see if it goes beyond the old 90's sitcom feel.
