  • The pilot.

    This was the pilot for the new series Action, a comedy that would lead the way for shows like Entourage and Californication. Part of the reason Action was not a bigger success can be directly attributed to it being FOX and not pay cable like the other two shows. This series thrived on raunchy comedy and cursing, something prohibited on network television.

    Jay Mohr is funny here, but this role does not suit him very well. I cannot see him as an arrogant agent, he is more of a Joe the Plumber type, and I think viewers saw through this as well.
