Workaholics Series Finale Recap

Workaholics Series Finale: Did the Guys Go Out in a Blaze of Glory?

What began as just another “Saturday” morning for the Workaholics (get high, watch cartoons, repeat) led to an unforgettable series finale adventure — which, let’s be real, they’ll all probably forget.

With but a small nugget to split betwixt them, Adam, Anders and Blake were forced to get creative, fashioning a glorious creation known as the Bermu-dope High-angle, a gadget that would optimize highness for all.

The guys were a little disappointed to then learn that it was actually Friday — Adam, naturally, was more upset about having to wait another day to watch PAW Patrol than he was about accidentally skipping work — but an impromptu rager eventually put him back in the right mood.

Impressed by the response to the guys’ party on social media, the marketing director of Bango energy drinks approached them the next morning, hoping to capitalize on “that tight butthole life” by sponsoring all future parties. (I know, I’m just as surprised as you are that the guys finally managed to throw a party people actually wanted to attend.)

As you’d expect, the instant fame that came along with being dubbed “Party Gawds” immediately spun out of control, especially when Bango decided to turn the guys’ parties into a web series; Adam became an entitled diva who paid someone to wipe his butt, Blake shaved his head to keep his “look” from being mass-produced, and Anders just sort of devolved into an all-around suicidal creep.

Fortunately, the Party Gawds Workaholics eventually came to their senses — following a few embarrassing post-Bango gigs (all of which included the smooth sounds of Asher Roth) and a dramatic confrontation in the TelAmeriCorp break room — and things went back to normal. Well, as normal as this show has ever been.

    They left out some of the best co-stars that were big part of the show. The blonde best friend, the hot boss, their dealer. For a series centered around them being at work and avoiding working they missed an important set, their tri-cubcie which was in most of the series.

    When Blake was cutting his hair I was just like noooooooooo

    I was bummed to not see Karl or any of the others, but I loved the last shot of them on the roof as the camera pulled away. That was a fitting last shot. Too bad Adam didn’t get to hook up with Alice though.

    Uninspired and not very funny closer. Actually, really unfunny.

    Depressing, all I know is Adam can’t live on pizza Steve money forever and Blake and Ders don’t seem to have anything else going on. They’ll be back!

      Adam Devine has been in a ton of movies lately and uncle grandpa was cancelled plus he has still his own stand up series on Comedy Central

    This was a really good Workaholics episode. That said I wanted something a little different for the series finale. It was great juxtaposition for them to actually throw a party that people were into but I just felt they needed to send this show out in a bigger way.

  7. I thought this was actually perfect commentary on each of their success in real life. Blake is basically know from the show as the “weird guy with the hair” from Workaholics. Anders had been more of writer/behind-the-scenes guy… (a brooding writer?) and thus cares less about the cameras and fame… and Adam became a “star” being featured in several movies and TV shows, thus establishing his brand. I know some the connections are week, but it was all very “meta” to me. Even the shots of the partying, the house, the roof hangouts, the music… was basically an extended version of the shows intro. Neat.
