    Clerks

    Follow
    ABC (ended 2000)
    This animated series, based on Kevin Smith's 1994 film of the same name, centers on Dante Hicks and Randal Graves, the clerks at The Quick Stop and RST Video. These "slackers" spend most of their time spoofing pop culture and whining about their miserable lives. Adding color to their lives are the resident "hetero-life partners" Jay and Silent Bob, who hang out and sell fireworks outside the store. Every show needs an evil villain, so to accommodate, Leonardo Leonardo was created -- a rich, gay psychopath, who was the evil foil for our heroes. Leonardo's sidekick, the menacing Plug, was a robot. NBA player Charles Barkley voiced himself in nearly every episode, playing the nemesis of Jay and Silent Bob. And Lando was created in episode 3 to address the lack of black characters in the show. Utilizing the animation, the makers inserted tons of film and television spoofs, and cameos from many stars.

    This short lived series not only set a record for the length of time it spent on the air, but for the length of the titles as well! The show was green lighted by ABC for six episodes, but the release date kept getting pushed back and after a spot on the Superbowl, they finally got around to airing the series on May 31, 2000. After playing the show for two weeks, the series was abruptly jerked off the air, even though the additional four episodes were scheduled. Plans were made to cut the episodes into a feature film, but this idea was eventually scrapped and all six episodes appeared on video and DVD the following year. Also worth noting, Leonardo Leonardo was based on (and originally voiced by) Alan Rickman (Dogma, Die Hard, Galaxy Quest), but the execs at ABC didn't want Rickman, so Alec Baldwin stepped in to do the voice.

    On the video version, the real Jay and Silent Bob come out to introduce each episode (and there's a special appearance by Randal). On the DVD, these clips appear after an animated version of Jay and Silent Bob holding up a card with the episode number. The DVD also includes an audio commentary, two featurettes, animatics, the Superbowl spot, and a long promo made for a film/comic convention. As a DVD-ROM bonus, there are script/storyboards and character profiles.

    On December 22, 2002, all six episodes premiered in a marathon on Comedy Central. Since then, the series has aired from time to time on Comedy Central, mostly during late night with the cable channel's other animated programming.moreless

    This is the story of a man who claims to be Cupid sent to Earth as a punishment. To earn his place back on Mount Olympus, he must reunite a hundred couples without the use of magic. He has been stripped of his powers and has become a normal human being for the length of his stay among us. Because of his claims, Trevor is thought to be delusional and placed under psychology study. He must attend Claire's therapy groups on a regular basis, where he usually likes to interfere and contradict her. Although the show is based on a fantasy premise, it is mostly an excuse. There has been no proof so far that Trevor really is Cupid and for all we know, he really could be just another nutcase. Yet, his ability to bring couples together, his great knowledge of Greek mythology and many other elements can only make one wonder.moreless

    Freddie Prinze, Jr. makes his television series starring debut in this offbeat family comedy from the team behind "The Drew Carey Show" and "George Lopez." Freddie Moreno (Prinze) had finally escaped from the raucous house of women with whom he grew up. Having achieved some success as head chef at a trendy Chicago restaurant, he's ready for love and everything else that single life has to offer, including hanging out with his best friend and neighbor, Chris (Brian Green, "Beverly Hills 90210"). Unfortunately, there's one slight hitch: After the death of his older brother and the collapse of his sister's (Jacqueline Obradors, "NYPD Blue") marriage, goodhearted Freddie took in his impulsive sister-in-law (Mädchen Amick, "Twin Peaks), his pragmatic sister with her 13-year-old daughter (Chloe Suazo, "The Comeback") and their irascible grandma (Jenny Gago, "Coach Carter"), who refuses to speak English and only responds in Spanish -- even though she understands every word. But while the members of this unconventional brood may test Freddie's patience endlessly, they also support and take care of one another, just as they always have. Now all Freddie has to do is figure out how to maintain his thriving bachelor lifestyle in a house overflowing with estrogen.moreless

    Life moves at a non-stop pace for Jake Phillips, a New-York based publicist-to-the-stars who's the key player at Magnum PR Agency. Handsome, incredibly well-dressed, he's on call 24/7 to meet the needs of his A-list clientele. Whether it's a macho action star caught in an embarrassing clinch, an older actress trying to dump her much-younger (and even more famous) boyfriend, or two warring teen divas - Jake is there to spin the facts and control his client's image, a task that often leads him into unexpectedly funny situations. Complicating his work life even further is his boss, Naomi (Malick), a woman in a people profession who frankly can't stand people, and who often uses Jake to act as her go-between when things get too personal with the staff or the clients. The fact that Naomi is an expectant single mom in the difficult final stretch of her first pregnancy doesn't help matters. Brooke (Bowen) is an office temp who doesn't take any of Jake's BS, and she's one of the few women who has ever said "no" to a date with him. But the drama in Jake's professional life has nothing on his personal life, as he strives to find the perfect girl to commit to, once and for all. A one-time player, he's determined to find "the one" woman to settle down with. But that's a little difficult for a guy who's so hard to pin down he can't even commit to a home - he lives out of a hotel. He came close to commitment once, but when his fiancée dumped him flat, it left Jake a little vulnerable. His friend since childhood, Adrian (Gomez), a married dentist living in the suburbs, vicariously enjoys Jake's adventures and offers him a sympathetic ear when things don't go right. Then there's Patrick (Hoffman)... he's a performance artist and David Blaine-wanna-be who crossed Jake's path when Jake dated Patrick's old girlfriend. Jake's been trying to get rid of him ever since, without much luck, and he pops up at the oddest times and most difficult moments in Jake's life.moreless

    Bosom Buddies followed the adventures of Kip Wilson (Tom Hanks) and Henry Desmond (Peter Scolari), junior ad-men at Livingston Gentry and Mishkin Advertising Agency. Kip was an illustrator, but aspired to be a painter, and Henry, a copywriter and aspiring novelist. When their building is demolished, they dress as women to stay with co-worker Amy Cassidy (Wendy Jo Sperber) in her apartment at the Susan B. Anthony Hotel, where men are forbidden anywhere above the lobby. Kip and Henry decide to invent alter egos Buffy and Hildegarde (their fictional sisters) to move into an empty (and cheap) apartment at the hotel – Henry, to write an expose about the experience, and Kip, to get closer to Amy's beautiful roommate, Sonny Lumet (Donna Dixon), nurse, and part-time dancer. Lilly Sinclair (Lucille Benson) was the manager of the hotel, and Isabelle Hammond (singer Telma Hopkins), an actress and model, was a fellow tenant of the hotel. Ruth Dunbar was Kip and Henry's shrewish boss at the ad agency. During the second season, Kip, Henry and Amy left the ad agency to start their own commercial production company. Ruth was still on hand as an investor, and less-than-silent partner. Lilly Sinclair was dropped from the series, and Isabelle became the hotel's new manager. The show originally aired for two seasons on ABC from November, 1980 to June, 1982. But after Tom Hanks began to become popular in such movies as Splash and Bachelor Party, NBC aired 8 episodes, handpicked from both seasons, during the summer of 1984.

Reasons why not to take that new job offer, reasons why not to tell a vacation fling to look you up if he's ever in Los Angeles, reasons why not to trust your crafty, back-stabbing former assistant , Glitter Cho (Smith Cho) .

Investigators working for her agency must be willing to treat the Constitution as nothing more than a flashing yellow light on the road to truth, justice or a big retainer. Manny Lott (Danny Nucci) is a whiz with a mini-cam and a mini-mic and loves a woman in a mini-skirt. But he also carries a mini-tranquilizer gun and will likely shoot you if you annoy him. Roberta Young (Paula Jai Parker) is prone to brazen deeds like stealing a deadbeat dad's toupee and holding it in "escrow" until dad forks over the child support. Glenn's newest recruit is former police detective Dana Plant (Paula Marshall). By-the-book and straightforward in approach, Dana seems an odd choice, like water to Glenn's oil. But Dana's conservative nature belies her brilliance as a sleuth, and Glenn can tell that Dana is secretly thrilled with the opportunity to "color outside the lines" for the first time in her life. Conflicts and quirks aside, the private dicks of Glenn Hall, Inc. will make sure that no one gets away with murder in the city of angels. David E.

Unfortunately for Andrew, these women are his mom, his aunt, and his three sisters. In his 15 years of life, he's never had a correct opinion, a private phone conversation or a hot shower. His mother, Julia, a busy caterer, is a widow, which makes raising her kids even more difficult as she has to act as mother, father and family provider. His Aunt Jordan, Julia's younger sister, is a booker at a modeling agency. A single woman around thirty, Jordan has a much simpler life than Julia's but manages to make it infinitely more complicated. Andrew's older, self-consumed sister, Paige is an aspiring model. She's not only intimidating to Andrew, but to most men she comes in contact with. Andrew's 14-year-old sister, Val rejects anything mainstream, including music, food, and especially Andrew. Andrew's youngest sister, 12-year-old Elizabeth, the house litigator, takes special pleasure in prying into Andrew's business. Andrew's best friend Keith is in awe of his buddy being surrounded by women, but finds himself both curious and intimidated by the opposite sex -- and frustrated that he can't seem to get a date with any of them. Though growing up surrounded by women has presented challenges for Andrew, it does have benefits. He can instantly recognize the scent of any girl's perfume, he is never at a shortage of Victoria's Secret catalogues and he has a unique sense of what women really want -- a powerful weapon in the dating world. But despite all these advantages, Andrew, like his fellow males on the planet, can never truly unravel the mystery of women. The series was filmed in Burbank, California, USA.moreless
