Corporate: Season 1 (2018)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Corporate takes a bleak, absurdist look at corporate life to deliver a clever show with a more nihilistic bent than your typical workplace comedy.

Critic Reviews for Corporate Season 1

[Corporate] doesn't do anything new for the genre, really... But it's funny in an uncompromisingly nihilistic way, it never resolves into artificial sweetness, and the ensemble seems to be having a great time.

To have that strong of a nihilist streak in a comedy and still have characters worth investing in and returning to is no small feat.

Darkly funny and clever in its skewering of the modern workplace, Corporate offers a welcome release valve for any corporate drones who tune in.

Hilarious workplace spoof has sharp but edgy jokes.

I mostly enjoyed the thought and effort, but I don't know if I would tune into another episode if it wasn't assigned to me. Corporate recreates how soul sucking working at the wrong job can feel, so much so that it left me feeling like I had just worked.

I laughed a lot watching Corporate, but it also kinda made me want to quit everything and move to the bottom of the ocean to live among the fish. I hope you'll see that as a recommendation.

Sadly relatable in these desperate times of ours.

Jan 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Enriched by very funny supporting performances from Aparna Nancherla and Lance Reddick, this dark, surreal lefty comedy is a small-screen cousin to Sorry to Bother You.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Illuminating white-collar wage slavery with the ruthlessness of fluorescent tubes, the sitcom is a satire of life under capitalism that captures its texture: that of factory-farmed gruel.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

A spiritual successor to 1999 cult film Office Space, Corporate is a bleak and absurdist workplace comedy with Mr. Robot's life-outlook and color palette and 30 Rock's sense of humor.

    This is one of the funniest shows in years. I had given up hope that there were any millenials with a sense of humor. This show proves that there are at least a couple. I haven't seen a bad episode. Remember day and natural beauty are brilliant.

    Love Love LOVE! It's amazing to see my life portrayed on the small screen.

    Best discovery this year. Hope for a lot more seasons!

    pitch black humor <3

    Cut from the same cloth as 'Office Space', yet updated for the 21st century, and, appropriately, much darker.
  • Mar 07, 2018
    The atmosphere and tone really sets up the dreadful pain of any job in the show. The writing is witty and terrifying and the humor is dark. 5/5
  • Feb 27, 2018
    Watching 'Corporate' makes me miss 'Better Off Ted' which was also a parody of corporate life but was much funnier with more charismatic performances. Meh.
  • Feb 02, 2018
    Definitely worth the watch. This is dark, dark, dark, and so great.

    Clever, makes life seem so worthless you want to cry with laughter.
