Storyline

Partners is a comedy that is about a life long bromance between Joe and Louis, two architects who have been friends nearly their entire lives. They are now are business partners, owning their own small architecture firm. Joe is very rational and level headed, following his head over his heart, sometimes a detriment to his relationships. Joe is newly engaged to Ali, a beautiful jewelry designer who brings out the best in him. Louis, in contrast to Joe, is passionate, outspoken and tends to exaggerate in order to make his point. Louis' partner's name is Wyatt, and is a vegan male nurse who is soft spoken and overly understanding. As they live their lives they must find a way to adapt, redefining the bond between them both personally and professionally now that there is an addition of two other important relationships.

Partners is a satiric sitcom full of relevant humor and trying to find it's footing.
11 October 2012 | by Gltokensp06See all my reviews

Partners, by the creators of Will and Grace is a delightful, lightweight, fast paced show full of quips relevant to today. While some of the characters may still be shallow, the show is attempting to find it's footing and "groove" as any new show does.

Partners centers around 4 people, but 3 relationships anchored with the main characters Louis and Joe. The two are partners in architectural firm who consistently delve into each others lives meddling wherever they can. The two, who have a codependent relationship are trying to navigate their own relationships while maintaining their friendship. Often, one crosses the line and there is a conflict which by the end resolves itself in a "I only meant to help" type of way. The two main characters are flanked by each of their respective lovers who despite Joe and Louis's codependency, are there along for the ride and usually being the receivers of misguided actions.

Of course, the bar is already very high, with this show being considered the "Will and Grace" of today, it hasn't established the depth of story or emotional ties that we all had while watching WAG.

Hopefully, the writers will anchor the character's down and establish a theme for the show that is as emotional and relate-able as their previous work. The show fills a niche that had long since been forgotten with groundbreaking sitcoms and will definitely give you a laugh!
