Working the Engels

Series Summary
"Working the Engels" is all about family and working together, literally. After the death of the father, the Engel family must come together and deal with his massive amount of debt by running his storefront law firm. All family members become co-workers with one minor difference: Daughter Jenna is the only one qualified to practice law. Joining Jenna at the law firm is her mother, widow Ceil, pill-popping sister, Sandy, and bad-boy brother, Jimmy. Forced into the position of business matriarch, Jenna tries to keep her whole, crazy family together.

  • Nothing about Engels works: the tired premise, the strained performances, the empty abyss of silence into which the groaning jokes dissipate. show more

  • Neither ["Welcome to Sweden" or Working the Engels] is awful, neither will make you cancel other plans.... A few bright ideas enliven the half-hour. But how many meddling mother jokes can they pile on before we’re weary? show more

  • The fish-out-of-water aspect intrigues but it also frustrates. show more
