A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show celebrates the irresponsible and immature behavior of recent college graduates -- all for laughs.
Positive Role Models
The main cast is hedonistic, immature, and irresponsible in an over-the-top, humorous way. They aren't out to harm anyone, but they don't have many boundaries, either. The three are very close friends.
Violence & Scariness
Some pushing, shoving, teasing, and coercing.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Workaholics is a scripted comedy series and spin-off of a popular Internet sketch comedy series. It follows three recent college grads engaged in lots of over-the-top behavior. Scenes include characters sexting pictures of their genitals (an image of a supposed female nipple is visible), drinking, using drugs like marijuana, and playing dumb pranks. Strong and crude language is also frequent (though curses like "s--t" and "f--k" are bleeped).
Is It Any Good?
The series is a spin-off of the popular online Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy and features a lot of the troupe's trademark irreverent humor, including crude sexual references, lots of drug use, and strong language. Some of the sketches border on slapstick and feature some silly -- albeit well targeted -- pranks.
Workaholics isn't intended for younger viewers, and not all mature viewers will appreciate the humor. But the overall show is well written, and the cast's comedic talent is apparent despite the inane exploits feature here. Mail Order fans, as well as folks who like this sort of comedy, definitely won't be disappointed.
