Tires

Tires

It has its moments, but this sitcom starring Shane Gillis is too flat to be funny or interesting

TLDR

There’s a joke that got a laugh out of me but I can’t seem to recall what it was, so that should tell you something about its memorability factor (or lack thereof).

What it's about

When auto shop manager Will (Steve Gerben) buys too many tires, he and his crew of mechanics, which includes his cousin Shane (Shane Gillis), have to think of ways to resell them to turn a profit.

The take

There’s something about Tires’ simplicity that can feel endearing, especially at a time when there are too many shows to keep up with. With its 20-minute runtime and almost nonexistent premise, it doesn’t ask too much from you, just that you hear out its jokes. But if only those jokes were good, and if only the characters had more to work with than what they’re given, then maybe Tires could actually be worthwhile. As it is, the humor is too juvenile, the characters too underwritten, and the plot too thin to be interesting. There is no friction nor conflict, just vibes, which makes Tires a pretty good background show to put on if you’re doing something else. But not one that’s satisfying enough to focus on and follow.

What stands out

To be fair, Gillis and Gerben share a fun and easy rapport that comes close to chemistry. It will need more time (and better writing) to develop, which they just might get in the confirmed second season.
