Let’s Get Physical (Pop) – Premieres 24th January
Comedy that follows Joe Force, the son of a famous aerobics instructor, who after failing to win a youth aerobics championship was banished by his father. After leaving his family Joe ends up becoming a singer of a band who spend their time performing in dive bars, weddings and Bar Mitzvahs. Where after a gig in a bar Joe gets a call telling him his dad is dead.
As he returns home with his band in tow for the funeral, Joe discovers that his dad has put a stipulation in place regarding his inheritance. Giving him the choice between selling the aerobics studio that has been giving to him, or running the place and winning the national aerobics championship which would get him $8million.
Joe decides on the easy option of shifting the place, where the only person interested is the guy who beat him in the youth championship, Barry, who runs a rival studio and is also married to Joes ex-girlfriend. After being constantly insulted by him Joe decides to keep the studio and challenges Barry to go against him in the championship to get his revenge.
The show is pretty similar in its set up to Dodgeball, with the plucky underdog going against an narcissistic megalomanic. Though that said it isn’t as good but it does have it’s moments and is easily the best comedy that has appeared on POP.
