"Fired Up" started off slow but like many tv shows, it got better as it went along. There were some wildly funny parodies of other shows (such as "Mission Impossible"), some hilarious send-ups of movie cliches (the "High Noon" moments in the ep entitled "Mr. New York") and a lot of funny, original notions. The series deserved better than got. The acting was excellent. Special kudos, big-time, to Leah Remini as the ultra-competent secretary, and Jonathan Banks as the mysterious bartender Guy Mann. Not to mention some outlandish guest-stars like John De Lancie. I wish the series had lasted longer.
