Working the Engels

Show Summary

A newly widowed woman, Andrea Martin as Ceil Engel, and her three children discover that their husband and father has left them a mountain of debts and a failing law firm.

Only one of the four, the youngest child, is qualified to practice law firm but that doesn't stop the entire family from trying to run the firm and keep it afloat.

  • One is too high

    I was reluctant to post because I hate to admit having watched 2 episodes of this drivel. It makes Bad Teacher look like Seinfeld by comparison. The only way it could be worse would be to move it to Sweden. Too bad 1 is the lowest I can give this zero...



    [Edit] In ep 2 the mother's performance in the coffin is painfully embarrassing to watch - I can't believe it's actually been compared to the hilarious fake-funeral episode of Arrested Development.moreless
  • Pretty bad

    This show uses the basic formula in which you have a bunch of wacky characters plus one reasonable human being to hold it all together. Generally the role of reasonable person is the weakest one, because all the fun is in the wackiness, and it's an indication of how poorly done this show is that in this case the reasonable one is the only one who seems even mildly interesting, the others being so cartoonish, flat, and stereotypical that all you can do is roll your eyes. The opening with Andrea Martin's painfully broad, community-theater quality performance is probably the worst part of the show, but the best thing I can say for it is I never quite got around to turning the pilot off.moreless
