Can Primetime TV Get Any Worse Than Workaholics?

Posted on by Stephenson Billings

Author’s Note: This reporter was tipped off about the television series Workaholics some weeks ago by a concerned parent. At the time, the focus was on an episode entitled, “The Lord’s Force” which displayed an egregious amount of anti-Christian bigotry. After some research, it was discovered that much of this program’s content has been released on YouTube. Parents are strongly cautioned that no matter where this program is viewed, it is entirely inappropriate for teens and young adults. Strong language, male nudity, themes of drug abuse and sexual perversion are far too common.

We live in an era where Hollywood elitists will do anything for profit, even engaging in profanity and pornography to garner higher ratings. Yet some in the liberal media have bigger plans. They purposely transcend the common tricks of juvenile humor to promote a lifestyle that is both criminally suspect and politically abhorrent. At a time when this nation is experiencing a critical failure due to a president’s reckless social policies, this is akin to adding dynamite to the fire.

One sickly stick of dynamite that the radical left is hurling towards us over the prime time airwaves is the new “comedy” series Workaholics. Based on the same premise as the long-running program The Office, this spin-off claims to take us behind the scenes of a modern business environment. In the process, the secret life of three young male employees is revealed in all its sordid, disgusting detail.

Lacking any semblance of faith or family, the major themes of this show are substance abuse, wanton sexual behavior and personal sloth. Instead of condemning these boys for their self-destructive antics, Workaholics holds them up as heroes for our slacker hipster drug-addled youths. Inevitably, such efforts spawn a generation forever chasing down nightmares of drunken urban violence and anonymous erotic escapades, marijuana bong kicks and implausible socialistic fantasies of a “workless“ work world. Yes, the days of the gentle comedy of Home Improvement and Growing Pains are long past.

In the hands of the show’s lead character Blake Anderson, it has been exhaled in a grungy puff of pot smoke. Of all the players on Workaholics, Blake best represents the surreal hatred of Judeo-Christian responsibility so readily promulgated by the Occupy Wall Street crowd. He is long haired and reeks of hippie filth. The grime of drug addiction oozes from his oversized pores. He is lazy and not especially good at anything, yet he dreams that his people will someday claim preëminence in the American game of politics. One need only consider the violence and death of the 1960s to see where such a lifestyle leads.

Adam Dekamp plays the jolly-bellied jokester on Workaholics, but his overeager pleas for laughter are painfully desperate. He is awkward, sweaty and bombastic, a disastrous combination for someone trying to launch a career in a medium where one’s personal faults appear ten pounds heavier. In real life, the man seems befuddled by his own stupidity. Maybe this is due to the crushing alcoholism that is depicted as a delightful aspect of his character. In scene after scene, viewers can’t help but notice the drunkard’s wandering eyes squinting off camera for his next cue card.

Sexually ambiguous Ambers Holm rounds out the all-male threesome on this series. With his undeveloped and strangely hairless body, he injects the show with an erogenous subtext that surely delights his cult of homosexual fans. Amber regularly prances delicately about the screen in nothing more than a tight, red speedo and has even displayed his erect genitalia to viewers. How such a profane violation of standards could find its way onto national television boggles the mind. Sadly, pimping himself out as an underground erotic icon seems to be the only recourse for a performer who couldn’t act his way out of a bag of biscuits.

In general, there is an overzealous amount of male youth sensuality to Workaholics. Many of the “jokes” concern personal masturbation as an open acknowledgement of the homosexual intent of the show’s creators. Quite simply, the premise of three young men, half-naked and high on narcotics, sharing a bungalow in Hollywood seems perfectly market tested for an audience of deviants.

The gang’s sassy sidekick, Latino Montel, is another nod to the liberal media’s agenda on display here. In every scene, Montel punches the air with his bulging fists and launches into loud, indecipherable ethnic tirades that ultimately contribute little to the plot. Are the creators trying so hard to be “politically correct” that they need to cast aside any appreciation of the rule of law? The short answer is undoubtedly yes. By pushing drugs and hedonism on America’s young television watchers this show is profoundly irresponsible. Inevitably, children could die reënacting the slapstick plot devices of Workaholics. Even worse, we as a nation are taken down a peg by such an open embrace of the very apathy and political subversion that leads to radical socialism.

It should be noted here that Jillian Belk, who plays a concerned female coworker to the boys, is one of the few standout characters on the show. She brings a surprising vivaciousness to an otherwise humdrum series. Not only does she exhibit a degree of talent that seems out of place next to such clumsy acting, she also exudes a truly genuine warmth and goodness that feels straight out of the heartland. One can respect her attempts to offer the thoughtful alternative of order and decency to the drug-fueled criminal acts of Workaholics’ hipster buffoons. She captures a certain quiet feminine authority topped off with a soupçon of sophistication that outshines everything else on this abomination of liberal pot propaganda. One hopes that Jillian is blessed with a more appropriate leading role in the future where she can better showcase her enormous talents.
