Sean Hayes, you deserve better! Thomas Lennon, so do you! So does almost every likeable actor with crack comic timing on this tired sitcom. The hijinks are merry, the jokes never stop, the energy is high, and the laugh track folks are in gales of giggles at every line. Somehow, though, it all seems blah -- there's a stab at wackiness, but the funny's not there.

This is a sitcom in which no one stands still while they talk. They deliver a line, race to another part of the set, and then deliver another one. Why are you people running around like that? Stand still! It's also a sitcom wherein, rather than tell the boss you're going home whether he likes it or not, a character exits work by having two coworkers lift him up so he can climb out a bathroom window. Um, yeah. Wasn't that an I Love Lucy plot...six decades ago?
