The band of corporate techno-geeks at Veridian Dynamics is back for another season of off-the-wall inventions and crazy schemes. With a solid cast and goofy storylines, Better Off Ted is one of the better new comedies on TV. Think Scrubs-style humor at a technology conglomerate instead of a hospital and you’d be getting warm.

Season two starts out with “Love Blurts,” wherein Veridian decides that it’s in the company’s best interest to help all the single employees meet their perfect match from among the coworker pool. And by perfect match, Veridian means the couples that are best suited for each other genetically, so as to ensure that their children will be as healthy as possible (and thus lower healthcare costs for the company). These sorts of diabolical ethics run throughout the show, but they’re completely subverted by the hilarious cast.

My favorite guys on the show are Jonathan Slavin and Malcolm Barrett. They play the scientist duo Phil Myman and Lem Hewitt, respectively. Their chemistry is terrific, even as they play the nerdy genius clichés to the hilt. Watching them is a hoot and they are collectively definitely one of the best parts of the show.

If you’ve never seen Better Off Ted, you ought to check it out. It’s snappy comedy with an absurdist twist. Season two premieres Tuesday at 9:30pm on ABC.
