  • This show discriminates!

    1.0
    Lee is obviously qualified to work at the company but they're only looking for women?! Why? Their reasons for only hiring women are stupid and don't make sense. It's a pharmaceutical company but the ladies seem to treat it like it's some sorority house! They won't hire Lee because he's a man. That's actually ILLEGAL because it's sexual discrimination and the company can be shut down by the authorities for that! Lee should've notified the authorities about the company's hiring policy because the authorities would've most likely gotten the company to give Lee a job but instead, Lee does the stupid thing and cross dresses to get a job there. Letting a company get away with an illegal hiring policy, that is way to out there and way to offensive! I already found this show very offensive and it doesn't deserve to be on the air.moreless
  • This might just be the worst thing ever to be put on television, I'm not exaggerating.

    So apparently someone stole Adam Sandler's screenplay for his next movie and decided it would be better as a TV show. They were wrong.



    Work It is about a man named Lee who hasn't had a job in a year. Like every other sitcom, he has a mandatory wife and kid. I guess having the wife made sense, but why the Hell is the kid necessary. She adds absolutely nothing to the "plot". He also has two friends. One of them, named Angel, is Lee's best friend, and ultimately becomes his partner in crime. His other friend, named Brian, is just stupid and shouldn't have been added to this show. Literally all he does is drink beers, and raise his hands in front of him, I know that's kind of a nitpick, put seriously what the fuck is he doing? So Lee decides that rather than be unemployed and continue to try get a real job in his current gender, he would rather pretend to be a woman to get a job. The main problem I have with this show, is not that he is dressing up as a woman all the time (which is pretty fucked up), but just how comfortable he and Angel are with this idea. The first scene with Angel in drag, he is having a blast. Also he get's the idea to dress as a woman after his prostate exam, and he came out of that seeming pretty happy. I'm not gonna say anything, but think about it. Also, Work It seems to take place in an alternate universe in which everybody is blind and cant see that this "woman" is clearly a man in drag. But, I digress. So at the job, there is the coworkers, and oh my God, are they annoying. Rebecca Mader, the girl who played Charlotte in Lost, is one of them, and I really hope she gets a nosebleed and dies so I can keep a little bit of respect for her. Seriously Rebecca, first "No Ordinary Family" now this? So, I bet you can guess what happens in the rest of the episode, they do things that women do and they almost get caught a bunch of times. Wow, good job guys.



    This show is horrible. It's unfunny, it's disturbing, I've seen instructional videos with better acting, and I'm sure that it's offensive to someone. If you have a brain, you will stay away from this show.moreless

    Work It has got to be the worst show ever. At least Bosom Buddies had a good cast and didn't bash men and transvestites. If this mess last past Episode two there is something terribly wrong.
  • Seriously?

    Congratulations ABC! Not only have you made an unfunny Bosom Buddies rip off, you have successfully created a misogynistic, transphobic, out of touch with the work world mess. Hope this gets canceled. Quickly. Very Quickly.
