  • Editorial Reviews

    Worst Week is an outrageous comedy series about a guy, a girl, her parents and a side-splitting assortment of catastrophes. Sam (Kyle Bornheimer, Jericho) and Melanie (Erinn Hayes, Kitchen Confidential) are engaged with a baby on the way – so winning over her parents is job #1 for Sam. Stern judge Dick (Kurtwood Smith, That '70s Show) and overprotective Angela (Nancy Lenehan, My Name is Earl) are willing to give this well-meaning young man the benefit of the doubt, but something utterly disastrous happens every time they get together. That won’t stop Sam from trying though and, with supportive Melanie doing damage control, he’ll just keep jumping back into the fray, hoping to charm his way into the good graces of his future in-laws. Each time he tries though the mishaps get crazier. Based on the acclaimed British sitcom The Worst Week of My Life, this madcap comedy from one of the twisted minds that brought you Scrubs boldly goes where no family misadventure has gone before.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another example of, what happened to.......? November 27, 2009
    This show was an example of, from week to week, a show that would make me cry from laughing so hard. One of those shows that you would snort, and laugh because it made you snort. Even when you absolutely knew what was coming next, to see it happen was hilarious. But then, the season ended, new season began and it was nowhere to be found on television. Whoever made the decision to cancel this show, whether it was up against a bigger hit (I don't even know what was on other channels in the same time slot), or what, ought NOT to be working in TV programming. I will have to get by watching this one season, over and over. It's that good, but I sure would have liked to have more than one season to enjoy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely funny December 2, 2009
    Verified Purchase
    I didn't expect anything from this series - nothing at all, really, I was just bored, and it was available - but what I found was one of my favorite shows ever, right up there with Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies, Coupling (UK, natch). And, you know, within shooting distance of Arrested Development (a far shooting distance, granted, but come on...) But of course it is nothing like them (but it is of course similar to the original UK series). What this is is funny, pure and simple, and, better yet, it's good-natured, with a warm heart, big laughs, and an almost innocent quality, even as it invokes shades of There's Something About Mary, and movies of that ilk.

    This is the essential quality of this show: there's no-one you can't like. Only one that's even really iffy on that subject, if that. And it's about time stories are written about love and good intentions (without overdoing it). It's the easiest thing in the world to sit there and think how you're going to cause trouble for your hero, only to say, oh, the mean father, the cruel boss, the nosy neighbor. Not here. And that's where this show has its brains, by never taking the easy way out.

    I don't want to invest this show with too many saintly qualities - it's just a sitcom, after all - but it doesn't feel forced, it makes you smile, it's compulsively entertaining. And it's about the most common condition, the one all its viewers share: we're all only human, right? This is a show about "nothing", but the nothing that means everything to the people involved in it. Not because they're snide, or bitter, or sarcastic. But because their hearts are in the right place.

    And yet not sappy! That's an achievement right there. How many good-natured sitcoms can really say that?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh Out Loud Funny October 9, 2009
    By Karlea
    I wasn't expecting much from this show - caught it once waiting for another. It was hilarious. I actually laughed out loud - which I have never done with a T.V. show before. I got several other friends hooked. I can't wait to get the show on DVD so that I can watch it start to finish, in order. Much, much better than expected.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Humorous Series November 15, 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Last season's Worst Week was an instant favorite in our house. We watched the entire season and each week we looked forward to the new episode. This turned out to be a real sleeper and a real winner. We hope to see a new season in the future.

    5.0 out of 5 stars For a change, the English version wasn't better April 1, 2011
    By seagoon
    Verified Purchase
    The English version, titled "The Worst Week of My Life" was very funny, indeed, but this American remake is absolutely hilarious. Kyle Bornheimer carries off the role of the hapless fiance with superb comic timing and the rest of the cast, some of whom you'll recognize from previous work in sitcoms, is uniformly excellent, as is the writing. And, perhaps best of all, the series tells the story of an American couple's week before the wedding...and then ends, unlike many American series which go on and on, long after we've lost interest.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Dry, British Humor July 7, 2010
    Verified Purchase
    If you're a fan of the original British sitcom "The Worst Week of my Life", you're sure to love this one-season series. It's a mix between "Meet the Parents" and Murphy's Law. Whatever can go wrong, does. One of the best short series I've seen!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Love It, Only to Lose It... December 24, 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Some series stay on way past their "expiration date." Here is a series that could have gone on for a few good, strong, hilarious seasons. I don't know why the series stopped so soon after it's conception. I don't have any info on the series at all. When it played, where it played and why it ended. I had never even heard of it until running across it listed on Amazon. A little pricey, but worth every penny. I loved every minute of every epidsode.

    Go ahead. Treat yourself to some good old fashioned laughter and invite your friends.
