Keep in mind I could only manage half of the first episode in Season 1, when the series is set in some idiotic conswrvative senator's office revolving around people who work there. The fact that the office is of a conservative senator is part of the contrived humor as Post plays a journalist in need of a temp job while finishing a book, and the character is as liberal as the senator (and presumably his staff) are conservative. The characters include every stereotype possible, either straightforwardly or reversed from what you'd expect, and the jokes are 100% as stereotypical as the characters. Those who recall Ritter in the late 70s/early 80s comedy Three's Company may miss his ridiculous character as the one here is more of a straight man, but the same tired old ridiculous contrived adult version (political, regional characteristics, economic class, sex, etc) of the pre-teen crowds' perennial (fart, burp, pee, and poop) equally unfunny jokes are very much in evidence in this series as well. If you like that sort of funny (I obviously don't) you will probably like this show; if it irritates you instead don't watch Hearts Afire.
