While I’ll begrudgingly admit it’s one of the many television shows that will eventually be lost to time, Workaholics will always hold a special place in my heart. I first stumbled upon it when I was a college student figuring out how to strike a delicate balance between my studies and degeneracy, and it only became more #relateable as I underwent the slow transition from shithead to a semi-functioning member of society.
Workaholics might have fallen off a bit in the last couple of seasons, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little disappointed when its final episode aired last year. As a result, I was pretty pumped when I heard Netflix had given the green light to a movie from the show’s creators.
We got our first look at Game Over, Man! when a teaser dropped last May, and now we’ve been given a belated Christmas present in the form of an extended red band trailer for the upcoming film that sure to be a hit with anyone who’s a fan of the original series, Die Hard, and the musical stylings of Shaggy.
I don’t think anyone is expecting this to be a critical masterpiece, and I’d honestly be disappointed if it was. All I’m really asking for is an hour and a half filled with superfluous pop culture references, slapstick violence, and at least one more cameo appearance by a celebrity who’s been forgotten by the world. Anything else is really just a bonus.
I’ll find out if my needs will be satisfied when the movie hits Netflix on March 23rd.
