The Knights of Prosperity

Show Summary

In this comedy from ABC, Eugene Gurkin (Donal Logue) spent years dreaming of quitting his graveyard janitorial job and opening a bar. But like a lot of people, he doesn't have enough money to make his dreams come true. So one night after watching an episode of "E! News", Eugene recruits a group of misfits to help him to carry out a plot to rob the plush celebrity apartment inhabited by Mick Jagger. When a team as special as that one is recruited, some funny things can happen.

  • And once again a great show is pulled...

    9.0
    This happens over and over... A great show is being pulled because of low ratings... It was underappreciated by most people, and I do not think it was given a decent chance..



    I enjoyed this show, and the crew cracked me up with their different personalities, especially Rockefeller, Louis and Gary.. The story looked quite ridiculous at first, but it worked very well through all the episodes. I hope another network will pick this show up, because we need some good comedy after the Friends era... I just dont get my hopes up, because I have been disappointed in the past...moreless
  • Group of guys decide to a celebrity in New York

    This show was absolutely amazing. The first time I watched it, I loved it. The plot and characters were funny and original. This show made me love wednesdays. When I heard that this show was getting cancelled, I was extremely upset. The show has been off for over a year and I still consider it one of my favorite shows. I loved every episode (though there were only 12). If abc would decide to bring it out on dvd, I would give them a hug and a cookie. I honestly miss this show very much.

    And I wish it wouldn't have gotten cancelled.

    I have yet to watch American Idol since then (it was on at the same time and I assume most people were watching it instead of The Knights).



    ABC did not give this show enough of a chance.

    Highly underrated.moreless
  • The best show's ever epitaph and little about friendship.

    9.6
    It is sad that this exremly enjoyable show is coming to a sad end in two weeks. I have fallen in love from the very first sight. Through whole 9 episodes made me lough, giggle, once I've even chocked to death. It's power lies in showing ordinary people trying in the enjoyable way - no matter what they were doing - they were trying. How many of us don't have the power to try? Or we just don't want to do something. The characters of the show were trying to make a change in their sad lives and through it they've gained real power - real friends. The show showed me that we are realy lonely in our lives and untill we make a stand to do something with it we will be lonely forever. Even if we have hundreds of people by our side and we do nothing to them they won't be our true friends -they will be only our followers, people who realy don't like us but only sees in us the way to achieve their own goals. True friendship comes from trying and sacrifices (like Eugene done it for Esperanza).

    And all of you flamers who gave this show score "1" din't learned from it at all. You saw only people trying to rob somebody and I see people who were trying to learn us how to build. To build a true frendship aroun the idea - no matter how crazy it is - it worth to try.



    Goodby Knights, I'll miss you.moreless
  • this show is horrible, I just can't make it through an etire episode.

    1.1
    Donal Logue is horrible, just like he was on that grounded for life show, the only time he has been funny was the short skits of Jimmy the cab driver or whatever he was called, those were kind of funny. I think he might be good on a skit show or something like that but not on a sit-com. I don't think the writing is all that good either. I personally made it a good portion of the show and then I finally said "OK I'm done" I had never even made it that long before, that's how much I dislike this show. ABC should take it of the air because even they have better shows than this they can put on.moreless
  • Inspired by watching the rich excesses of Mick Jagger on reality TV, Eugene Gurkin (Logue) recruits accomplices (an unlikely yet effective gestalt) to help rob the star. Sort of an "'Oceans 11' (etc) meets the characters of Westlake's Dortmunder Gang."moreless

    Online preview clips prior to the airing of the first episode already had me in stitches. Each week of its short run, Knights had me laughing so hard I'd have to rush to the bathroom to relieve myself during breaks. This was one of my favorite new shows ever in a long time. I truly miss it and can't understand why a great, well-written show with such a terrific cast as this one ended up being canned. Seeing guest star Mick Jagger having such unbridled fun at his own expense in the premiere was icing on an already delicious comedy cake.moreless
