Partners has become one of my new favorite shows! CBS is really stepping it up in the comedy department, adding this show to a list of great comedy hits along with How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, and others. On this week's episode, Joe and Louis have to hire a secretary for two weeks while their's visits "the island of Nunya...nunya business!" With Ro-Ro gone on her secret getaway, Louis decides to hire Wyatt as their secretary, without talking it over with Joe beforehand, of course. Joe tries to warn Louis about how this will affect their home life badly, but Louis decides it will be a "win-win" for everyone! Even though he doesn't understand the meaning of "win-win". In the meantime, Ali has a party at her store that she has to get ready for and while it's very stressful, it all comes together in the end. Love her but her stories usually aren't very complicated... Wyatt's height and ability to organize makes Joe love having him around the office but as predicted, Louis starts to hate having Wyatt work with them. He has unknowingly taken over as the funny, cute, gay guy of the office which sets off Louis jealous streak and he makes Joe fire Wyatt. But, Wyatt's puppy dog eyes and sweet obliviousness overcome Louis with guilt and love and the next day Wyatt is back to work! Turns out to be a "win-win" after all! Well, if you ask Louis.
If you haven't been watching Partners, you seriously need to jump on this comedy bandwagon. Since this is my first time writing about it, let me catch you up: CBS's new hit comedy is about two guys, one gay and one straight, who are best friends and business partners. They story is based on the relationship of the show's creators (who are also the geniuses behind Will&Grace), David Kohan and Matt Mutchnick. The characters are Joe, played by David Krumholtz, and Louis, played by Michael Urie. Their close friendship and work relationship starts to get tested when Joe gets engaged to his girlfriend, Ali (Sophia Bush). Louis and his boyfriend, Wyatt (played by Superman himself, Brandon Routh), make for a wonderful 'opposites attract' duo against Joe and Ali. It's so fun watching the friendship of Joe and Louis try and change but then realizing it never will. So, their better halves adapt! Ali and Louis's friendship develops even more into the girl/gay bff relationship we all know so well and Wyatt...well Wyatt is a super hot, super sweet gay guy who apologizes for yelling when he doesn't even raise his voice. I love seeing how Wyatt humbles Louis, even if it's only for a minute. No matter what crazy stuff Louis pulls, he always realizes how lucky he is that Wyatt has stuck around and dealt with him. Partners airs Mondays on CBS at 8:30 pm EST.
