Decadent, depraved, delusional, and vile "comedy" program. Promotes anti-Christian virtues and attempts to play off premarital sex, heavy drug use, and binge drinking as "normal" and "good" and "funny". If you have any respect for yourself or at the very least for your children, do not let them watch this repulsive program.

Funny Show for Mature Audiences

This show features drug use, strong language (if you are watching the DVDs/Blu-Ray, the "F-Bomb" and other obscenities are uncensored and there is a good bit of it). There is a lot of adult humor (a lot of talk about sex, erections and even phedophilia) as well as drug and alcohol use (illegal drugs and tobacco). This is not something that I would let young kids watch, but as long as your kids are old enough to know that this is NOT how you act at work, then they should be fine. There is nothing in this show they wouldn't hear about in school.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (11 ):

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.
