Plot Synopsis

BENDERS is a half-hour comedy series that follows a team of friends bonded by an irrational obsession with their men's ice hockey team, Uncle Chubby's. While their hockey skills may be limited, their passion is not, as evidenced by the chaos their devotion to the game creates in their everyday lives. Paul Rosenberg is the insecure leader whose involvement with the team causes daily havoc for him and his wife Karen. Along for the ride are Paul's best friends Anthony, the charmer who schemes his way through life; Dickie, the wealthy hedge fund manager whose answer to everything is in his wallet; and Sebalos, the slacker on a misguided search for his purpose in life.
On Thursday, November 19, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, IFC premiered the season finale of BENDERS. In the season ender, "California Here We Come," Paul and Karen contemplate the future as Karen receives an exciting new job offer. The Chubbys host a farewell party. Guest stars: Steve Schirripa, Robert Kelly.
