Trivia

Every episode began and ended with the lead character reading in voiceover chapters from a fictional book he had written about his life as a successful sports agent. The point of this was to show that the character did the exact opposite of what he wrote. Robert Wuhl said he got the idea to do this after seeing a book written by Donald Trump. Wuhl said he always wondered what the difference was between what was written and what was actually done. See more »

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.
