Arliss Michaels is not a sports agent, he is a sports super agent. To his athletes and to the world around them he is God. He is like Jerry Maguire but without a conscience.

Can be great
4 July 2000 | by (Ann Arbor, MI) – See all my reviews

I have watched Arli$$ from the beginning, and believe that the quality has deteriorated a great deal. However, when the show deals with serious topics in a serious manner (and still manages to work in some humor) such as recent episodes dealing with domestic violence and steroid use, it is one of the most compelling comedies on television.
