    Dilbert

    UPN (ended 2000)
    Dilbert is a cubicle dwelling employee for a large soulless corporation. Each episode the show goes on many adventures that will leave you waiting for more. One simple phrase to describe Dilbert would be laugh out loud. The comical adventures that each story have are very well written by expert writers and voiced by an astonishing cast. The series is mainly about the main character Dilbertand his daily life at work. Although it is not always your typical days events that happens at the office. One of the many features this office has are little people living in the basement who apparently steal the company's markers and uses them to get high. Story lines expand from the world coming to an end for Y2K to the Dogbert trying to enslave the world! Dilbert truly is a show that you only see once in every 30 channels! Characters: Dilbert: Dilbert is your average "tech buff." He has a dog named Dogbert who frequently out-wits him. When push comes to shove you will most likely see Dilbert on the ground. He is an engineer, but often questions if he was meant to have that career. Often he tries to get his own office away from the fellow employees, but every scheme fails for one reason or another. Dilbert is the average struggling guy trying to get by at work one day at a time. Dogbert: Dogbert is not your average dog. In fact he is nothing like a dog at all. On the outside he may look like "man's best friend", but on the inside he wants to rule man. In many episodes Dogbert tries to control the world, but in each episode his scheme fails for one reason or another. Although Dogbert may seem cute and fuzzy he is far from it. The relationship is basically the opposite between Dilbert and Dogbert. Though these two often disagree on many matters they always have each other's back….or at least most of the time. Pointy-Haired Boss: He's every employee's worst nightmare. He has the laziness of Homer Simpson and the wacky comments of Peter Griffin. When those two are mixed watch out! Although he is often away from work he is the boss and as the boss he has the most power at the office. Now stupidity and leadership don't always work well together so just when you thought you figured him out he will surprise you with some wacky antic! Alice: She is one of Dilbert's co-workers. Being the only female employee in the department, she puts up with a lot. Occasionally the guys at work may step out of their place, but she will always take care of that with some violence. Her cubical is located to the left of Dilbert's, but that doesn't stop her from making frequent visits. Certainly Alice is a force not to reckon with. Wally: He is every employee's worst nightmare! He is very lazy and only goes to work just to be there thus receiving his pay check. He tries to use schemes to receive quick cash, but usually they don't work. He later learned in the series that trying to save up sick days for early retirement doesn't always work. The lesson learned in that was that over a period of time those days expire. Over all Wally is pretty much a small guy with a big mouth that frequently gets him in trouble. Broadcast history: Mon: 8:00 PM - 8:30 PM Tue: 8:30 PM - 9:00 PM Like many great shows Dilbert was short lived, but its memory lives on in eternity. Now, many are able to watch Dilbert on DVD and relive every wacky memory that the show has to offer. Not only has Dilbert become one of the most famous comic strips like Garfield, Peanuts, Blondie, etc. etc. but has become somewhat of a "hope symbol" to the daily working person. So pop the DVD in and let your bones ache from laughter! Dilbert is based off of the hit comic strip series of the same name created by Scott Adams.moreless

    The Apprentice is a business reality show, where candidates compete in two teams to perform the best during business-related tasks, set by Lord Alan Sugar. Each week, the teams must appoint a Project Manager to lead them for the duration of the task, overseen by a trusted aide to Lord Sugar. In seasons 1-5, these were Margaret and Nick. From season 6 onwards, Margaret was replaced by Karren Brady. The team that performs the best will receive a reward, whilst the losing team will be summoned back to the boardroom and interrogated over their failure. Their project manager will be forced to pick two team-mates to face a final encounter, one of whom will be fired. In the first six seasons, the overall goal was a position working for Lord Sugar, with a £100,000 salary; this changed to be a £250,000 investment to start up a business of the winner's choice, with Lord Sugar as a partner.moreless

    PBS (Mini-Series 2000)
    The American President is a 2000 PBS documentary series about all the men (up to President Clinton) to hold the highest office in the United States Government. The series is broken into 41 fifteen minute chunks, each one on the life of one of America's presidents. Rather than go the obvious route and sort the episodes chronologically, the presidents are grouped thematically. For example, one episode features five presidents who achieved the office by being the Vice President when the previous President died, such as Lyndon Johnson and Teddy Roosevelt. Another deals with four that achieved the office through military heroism, such as Washington and Eisenhower. The presidents still living at the time of the documentary's production were interviewed and provided vocal narration for their segments, and celebrities such as Walter Cronkite were brought onboard to lend their voice to those who were not. Anyone interested in the history of the presidency will find something to like about The American President.moreless
