For decades, workplace comedies have been a popular genre. Hundreds of vocations have been represented on television, ranging from office life to medical shows to the restaurant and bar scene. Many of these shows prioritize humour and satire above realism. Their objective is not to be relatable, but to make audiences laugh. Other workplace comedies, on the other hand, strive to represent the job as accurately as possible. Sure, they add zany activities and over-the-top personalities, but the sitcom is ultimately realistic and has the potential to make viewers remark, “this is absolutely me at work.” So we at Animated Times thought, why not show fans what these Accurate Workplaces are? Sounds interesting? If yes, then let’s hop into the list and find out about these workplace portrayals.
6. Accurate: Scrubs:
Doctors and nurses ranked 10 popular medical programs for accuracy and entertainment value in an interview with Insider Magazine. Surprisingly, one of the highest-rated shows on the list was Scrubs, a medical comedy/drama. According to Dr. Ross Kopelman, “while it’s a comedy, for the most part, it properly reflects the life of a resident doctor.” Other medical series on the list, such as Grey’s Anatomy and Nip/Tuck, performed poorly in terms of accuracy. “Scrubs is one of the few medical shows that I can watch without cringing because something is grossly overdone or incorrect,” Dr. Cherlyn Cecchini told Insider. In fact, Scrubs is the most relatable medical drama I’ve ever seen. ”
5. Inaccurate: Brooklyn Nine-Nine:
Although certain parts of Brooklyn Nine-Nine have been highlighted as realistic, it appears that the show is not an authentic portrayal of the NYPD. According to one NYPD investigator on Reddit, the series is “Almost entirely incorrect. Administratively, everything from rank and file organization to processes. Even the way the precinct operates is different. ” This is not really surprising. In any case, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is best enjoyed as a silly comedy than as a serious “police show.”
4. Accurate: Parks And Recreation:
Parks and Rec sees government jobs through rose-colored glasses, and no workplace is always a “treat yo self day.” However, the series gets a lot of things right when it comes to municipal governance. Parks and Recreation correctly reflects municipal government concerns such as park access, water privatization, and zoning and incorporation, according to Next City writer Rachel Dovey. Other concerns, like government shutdowns and the often absurd complaints of Pawnee residents, apply to government personnel as well.
3. Inaccurate: Workaholics:
Even if you’ve never worked in a telemarketing firm, it’s clear that workaholics aren’t realistic. Blake, Adam, and Anders’ shenanigans on a daily basis would have gotten them fired a hundred times over. They take drugs at work, act inappropriately with coworkers, and never seem to get any work done. Workaholics, on the other hand, make for entertaining television.
2. Accurate: The Office:
The Office is one of the most well-known and adored office comedies of all time. Of course, as with most sitcoms, there are some things that happen in the series that would never happen in a real workplace. Michael makes inappropriate jokes all the time and never seems to get any actual work done. The amusing activities of the staff certainly make an office job appear more enjoyable than it is. The Office, on the other hand, covers real-life challenges in the workplace. It depicts the monotony of the job, the tedious, meaningless meetings, and even talks about downsizing and the concern that the paper business would become outdated. Despite the fact that the show is satirical, many corporate Americans have found it to be relevant.
1. Inaccurate: Bob’s Burgers:
The number of workers required to manage a restaurant is Bob’s Burgers’ major fault in its representation of food service life. The fact that Bob, Linda, and their children are the sole workers. Even on quiet days, everyone who works in a restaurant understands that it takes more than two staff (and three children) to keep things going smoothly. Tina, Gene, and Louise are all under the age of 14, therefore their ability to assist at work must be limited. The fact that the children work at all at the restaurant raises some concerns regarding child labour rules. While Bob’s Burgers is a great show, a real restaurant could not run without additional staff.
So there you have it: 3 Workplace Comedies That Are An Exact Representation Of The Occupation (And 3 That Aren’t).
