Review: Free Agents

Free Agents is the American version of a British sitcom focusing on the romantic relationship at work between two executives.

A depressed recently divorced guy that really misses his children (Hank Azaria) and a girl whose fiance died a year ago (Kathryn Hahn) are coworkers at a PR agency. One morning Alex and Helen wake up in bed together. The two get drunk and end up having an intimate moment. The morning after, once sober, they try to analyze the situation and control the damage. The two are attracted to one another, but Helen thinks that it is better to stay friends. The series is all about the two characters reinventing themselves in hopes that at one point, when they are ready, they will find each other.

Unfortunately, the whole reinventing of ones self adventure in Free Agents is rather uninspiring, even though both characters go to a therapist, Dr. Hu in trying to expedite things. Alex is constantly humiliated by his boss and by younger colleagues or even clients at times, but his experience and talent have their say in the end.

When Alex gives in to his mates and accepts to go out on a date, Helen becomes jealous. Still, she lacks the courage to make a decisive step and their relationship stays just as it was in the beginning; casual, intimate and funny.

Verdict:

Free Agents was canceled probably because NBC didnít see audience interest for this show. It may also be that the original British series is much naughtier, so viewers were expecting something else from Free Agents. In any case, the show is good, and you should give it a try when looking for a few laughs.
