Workaholics is a Comedy Central series about three young guys who work together and live together, and get into some ridiculous situations together, often involving one of my personal favorite items in the world, alcohol.  This two-disc set includes the ten episodes from the show's second season, all with optional commentary tracks (called, not very cleverly, "drunkmentary" tracks). The bonus features on the second disc include a blooper reel, alternate takes and deleted scenes (the hamster line from the deleted bit from "Temp-Tress" is hilarious, and should have been left in), and a 15-minute behind-the-scenes feature (which is mostly just the guys screwing around in the writers room).

Workaholics stars Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm (who are also three of the show's six creators).  The show also features some very funny supporting roles (particularly that of Jillian played by Jillian Bell, and Alice played by Maribeth Monroe).

Here is a brief rundown on the second season's episodes:

Episode 1: "Heist School" - The guys take a cool dragon statue from a park to put on their lawn after realizing that as tax payers the dragon sort of belongs to them anyway. But then it's stolen from them by some high school kids, so they go undercover at the school in order to reclaim the statue.  It's weird, because even though they're kind of losers (particularly in this episode), you end up identifying with them. After all, they're the characters driving the show. And because of that, it's frustrating watching them putting up with stuff that I would never put up with.  They're bullied and manipulated by teenagers.

Episode 2: "Dry Guys" - The guys wake up and discover that their house and yard have been trashed by teenagers. They decide not to drink, a promise one of them quickly points out they'd made last week too.  But they swear they'll remain sober for a week. After fighting at work, they have to go to an addiction class, and that's where the episode's funniest moments occur.  The sock puppet bit is great, mostly because the camera stays on the puppets rather than on the guys too.

Episode 3: "Temp-Tress" - There are two things I hate seeing destroyed even for the sake of comedy: musical instruments (that acoustic guitar in Animal House, for example) and books. At the beginning of this episode they destroy a lot of books when their television stops working.  That aside, this episode is seriously hilarious, and is probably my favorite of the season.  A hot temp from Australia makes it impossible for the guys to concentrate, and they realize they need release. My favorite line is this: "It reminds me of like when you were a kid and you masturbated in the car on the way to church."  This episode also has references to This Is Spinal Tap (one of my favorite films).  Anders Holm wrote this one.

Episode 4: "Model Kombat" - Blake spends his free time playing video games, while Adam decides to become a male model.  This episode actually has a Shakespeare reference.  Adam is upset because Anders was chosen to be the company model instead of him. So as Anders sleeps, Adam puts pepperoni on his face, hoping it will cause him to break out. While doing this, Adam whispers, "Good night, sweet prince" (a line from the end of Hamlet).

Episode 5: "Old Man Ders" - Ders turns twenty-five, and tries to deal with aging by acting younger. Damn, I feel old watching this show. I love the line, "Legitimately scary, too drunk to care."

Episode 6: "Stop! Pajama Time" - Their boss goes home sick, so everyone at the office has a good time.  This line totally cracked me up: "I'm fired because of some stupid Earth law?" Blake Anderson wrote this one.

Episode 7: "Teenage Mutant Ninja Roommates"  -  While trying to escape from one of those silly neighborhood security guys, the fellows end up in the sewer. I've never seen Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so I didn't get any of the references, and the long argument about which turtle Anders is was consequently dull to me.

Episode 8: "Karl's Wedding" - Their friendly neighborhood drug dealer changes his entire world in order to marry the girl he loves.  The wedding is held at the guys' house.  My favorite bit in this episode is when Adam goes looking for a date, deciding on a young girl who'd promised to marry him when they were kids. Rachel, the girl he ends up with is wonderful (she's played by Katee Sackhoff).  Karl, by the way, is played by Kyle Newacheck, one of the show's creators who also directed many of the episodes.

Episode 9: "Man Up" - At a karaoke bar (something I've never understood the appeal of), some bonehead deliberately pours a beer on Adam. So the guys decide to buy guns. At the gun store, Adam argues, "If a man disrespects you in a bar and pours a beer on your head, you have a right to shoot that man."  But instead of shooting that man (which he probably deserves), they end up acting more like him, trying to be Men.  Anders Holm wrote this episode.

Episode 10: "6 Hours Till Hedonism II" - The guys are off on a trip to a big party called Hedonism II, but Blake has no passport.  Adam Devine wrote this episode.

Workaholics Season Two was released on DVD and Blu-ray on June 5, 2012.
