Partners is an American sitcom that originally aired on CBS in 2012 and lasted for one season until its cancellation in 2013. The show revolves around two lifelong friends, Joe (David Krumholtz) and Louis (Michael Urie), who own an architectural firm together. Joe is the more straight-laced of the two, while Louis is more flamboyant and outspoken. The pair provide a great comedic dynamic as they navigate through both their personal and professional lives. Their friendship is put to the test when Joe breaks off his engagement with his longtime girlfriend, Ali (Sophia Bush), and begins dating a much younger woman, Ro-Ro (Jillian Bell).

The show also features a strong supporting cast, including Brandon Routh as Louis' boyfriend, Wyatt, Amanda Peet as Joe's sister, Johnny, Gary Basaraba as Louis' father, and Johnathan Schaech as Ali's new love interest.

One of the main strengths of Partners is the chemistry between the two leads. Krumholtz and Urie have a natural rapport that is both entertaining and endearing. Their banter is quick-paced, and the humor is often sharp and edgy. They share a deep bond that is evident in their interactions, and their friendship is at the heart of the show.

The supporting cast is also well-rounded, each bringing their own unique personalities to the mix. Routh plays Wyatt, a sensitive and caring partner to Louis, who adds a different dimension to the show's depiction of same-sex relationships. Peet is excellent as the overprotective and meddling sister, while Basaraba steals many scenes as Louis' gruff and opinionated father.

The show tackled some serious subjects, such as aging, infidelity, and family dynamics while still maintaining its light-hearted tone. The storylines were often reflective of contemporary issues, typically seen in architecture firms, embodying both the humor and the drama that exist in today's high-stress job market.

Partners ultimately failed to gain traction and was cancelled after one season. However, its talented cast and charming humor still make it a show worth watching for anyone looking for a quick and entertaining sitcom to pass the time. The series was a habitually well-structured show that highlights the significance of being sincere about one's passions both personally and professionally.

In conclusion, Partners was a delight to watch for those who enjoyed classic sitcoms that merged humor and drama. The show's ability to address everyday issues with an endearing perspective makes it an excellent choice for anyone who appreciates great ensemble casting and comedic timing. So, if you're looking for a show that mixes hilarious comedy, heartwarming friendship, and poignant themes, give Partners a try.

Partners is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (11 episodes). The series first aired on September 24, 2012.
