About a month ago, the new sitcom Work It premiered on ABC. It was supposed to replace Man Up, which had been cancelled. Work It was about two guys who are so desperate for jobs, that they apply to a pharmaceutical company that only hires women. This results in them having to dress and pose as women in this job and hilarity ensues. Or is supposed to anyway.
I have seen every episode. My mom and I guessed that the show would only last for 3 episodes because it was such a terrible concept. But we were wrong. It did not last for 3 episodes. It only lasted 2. And yes, I saw all 2 of them. Even though I had extremely low expectations for it, my expectations were apparently still not low enough. The second episode was slightly better than the first, but that really wasn’t saying much at all. I’m glad they put an end to it before airing a third one. Because I probably would have watched it. Dodged a bullet there.
I think it was pretty much the epitome of bad TV. One of those shows where you laugh only because you’re baffled by how dumb it is. There’s a lot of crap on television these days, but I’d like to think we’ve moved passed the point of thinking a man talking in a high-pitched voice and over exaggerating so-called feminine qualities is entertaining. It seems my thinking was right, since everyone else hated it too. I enjoy bad TV as much as the next person, but you have to draw the line somewhere.
