I love it when that happens..., 4 February 2002
Author: bigsleepj from Captain Nemo's Submarine

The waiter in a geeky Internet cafe describes one of the day's specials and comments that "Like Bill Gates it's way to rich."

In another scene the programmers are designing a game called "Kill everyone! 2". The main character, Carey (Farah Forke), asks "But if everybody was killed in the first game who is left to kill?" The answer comes "People who hid and dogs and cats."

Back in the internet cafe, Carey tries to meet with the boss's internet girlfriend who turns out to be a bunch of kids playing a prank. She walks over to her nerdy co-workers who are busy on the Internet. One of them presses a button and says: "I traced his on-line name (the leader of the kids). His name is Stephen (or something). Unfortunately he just flunked maths."

DWEEBS didn't have the perverse humour of FRIENDS, the absurb situations of SEINFELD, Homer Simpson, or family-comedy that made THE HOGAN FAMILY, PERFECT STRANGERS or FULL HOUSE so funny. It did have messages like EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND or the message-bashing of JUST SHOOT ME. It just wanted to make you laugh.

Those who dared watch it knows it would have been one of TVs greatest shows. It had memorable characters the boss of the company, who does his brainstorming on a trampoline. Vic, the cool macho jock, who likes programming. The list goes on.

The situation of the comedy is this: Carey, the type of outgoing person who never hang out with nerds, takes on a job at a small programming firm. Soon she discover that these guys are better people than her old friends, and that they are richer!

This show only had about eleven episodes, but it made me laugh! I looked forward to it every night! My friends and I talked about it, it was cleaner than most shows (someone say MARRIED WITH CHILDREN) while still being funny. It is something of a gem! But now it lies forgotten on a video tape somewhere!

Would I like to see it again? No. I'm afraid that I wont like it second time around. Some memories are bettetr that way...

But I would like to see a new version!
