The Loop - Season 1

The supporting players are actually more likeable and enjoyable to watch than the four stars. As Sam's overeducated personal assistant Darcy, Joy Osmanski delivers her lines with deadpan sarcasm similar to Janeane Garafalo's speech pattern. And Mimi Rogers is wonderful in her role as Meryl, a cougar continually on the prowl for Sam. The juicy part takes advantage of the former Mrs. Tom Cruise's beauty, as well as her surprisingly spot-on comedic timing. But the viewer is left wondering why she'd ever be attracted to Sam, who's a mere whelp of a boy, and a bumbling one at that. Still, she covers for him at work, advising him to "act like you've had uncontrollable diarrhea" when he returns from bailing out one of his friends. Also, look for entertaining guest appearances by Adam Brody (The O.C.) as the gay son of Sam's boss, and Masi Oka Heroes as a Chinese interpreter for a potential client. Though Piper is supposed to be the smart one (she's planning on going to medical school) who views an A-minus as a hideous failure, she is on Sully's level when it comes to common sense. She continually takes back her scummy boyfriend and is completely clueless about Sam's feelings for her, even though his longings would be obvious to Helen Keller. It's difficult to root for a couple when you don't really like either one of them. The better coupling would be Sully and ditzy Lizzy. While neither character is particularly well thought out, they can at least be fun to watch. --Jae-Ha Kim

I hoped and prayed that it would find an audience and a home. Alas it did not. However, one can now view all 17 episodes (7 in season 1 and 10 in season 2).
In short the story revolves around a young executive (Sam) at an airline company and his struggle to balance work and play.
As a young man in the world he lives with His slacker brother. A brunette who is a seemingly unavailable love interest and a blond who is an attractive bartender. As one would expect hi-jinx ensues. Comedy abounds in this environment. However, in my opinion, it is the situations at work which fuel the most laughs and for me is very reminiscent of the type of outrages comedy one would see in shows such as "Soap", "Police Squad" and much later "30 Rock" and "Community".
I cannot recommend this more. Give it a try. You will enjoy it.
I personally liked, and still do like it. It's definitely relate-able and also funny. Uses a similar formula that romantic comedies do: the main character can't seem to get the one they love cos there's a constant misunderstanding between the two of em'.
Definitely gets kinda' upsetting, but hey *shrug* !
Gotta' love The Loop !
just terrible. did not age well.
