Partners: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Partners: Season 1 (2012)



Critic Consensus: The leads are likeable, but Partners is a so-so sitcom with underdeveloped characters and a shortage of quality laughs.

Tv Season Info

This premise follows a straight man Joe Goodman (David Krumholtz) and his lifelong gay best friend Louis McManus (Michael Urie) now working together at their own architect company. Louis is in a committed relationship with his boyfriend Wyatt (Brandon Routh) but is skeptical that Joe should take the next step and propose marriage to his girlfriend Ali (Sophia Bush). Series creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick ("Will & Grace") admittedly have based this show on their own relationship.

Unfortunately, Partners isn't a very funny show.

September 24, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Urie and Krumholtz alone make this a half hour worth watching.

Louis isn't offensive. You just wish he were more interesting.

September 24, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Witless, predictable and much closer to creepy than funny.

September 24, 2012 | Full Review…

The rest of the ensemble simply can't keep pace with Urie.

I'm dumbstruck. Just dumbstruck.
