We Are Men is an ensemble cast of those characters. Oh, you know the ones I'm talking about. The Tom Haverfords of Parks and Recreation, the Ted Mosbys of How I Met Your Mother, the Penny Hartz of Happy Endings, the Schmidts of New Girl, the Gus Gusters of Psych, the Russell Dunbars of Rules of Engagment . . . I could go on.
The woes of single life are comedy gold when contrasted with alternatives. Traffic Light is a great example of a successful contrasting of relationship dynamics to great comedic effect. The problem is that every single person on the planet is all too aware of the black comedy dating can be. An entire show about it gets a little old after a while.
However, two factors could make this show a success. Firstly, having a show based on the solidarity of unhappily single men as opposed to unhappily single women could be refreshing. Secondly, CBS sitcoms usually have great friendship dynamics. So there's hope. Well, there's something.
