It Simply Falls Short
18 July 2009 | by DangermouseDavsSee all my reviews

There's not a lot to this show, and subsequently not a lot to my review.

"Michael and Michael Have Issues" is about two guys who disagree. A lot. There's your plot summary.

If I were to try and compare this show to something that people actually watch, I'd say it were like "The Office" mated with a Dimitri Martin comedy routine and had all the funny bits taken out.

Really, though, if you're a fan of "The Office", don't expect this show to come close to what that brings us. From what I've seen in the first episode, its jokes are likely going to be repetitive and its dialogue pointless. I hope you have the good sense to remove it from you DVR list, as I plan to do after I submit this review.
