Storyline

This comedy series stands halfway between the average sitcom and Tarantinoesque production. It focuses on Curtis, a weird couch potato who never leaves his home and watches the Rex Reilly Show (Geraldo on acid) all day long. Also of importance are his room-mates Hope and Nathan and Lucky the cat. To some extent, the show might be considered a wild satire of Generation-X life in Toronto. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

Nathan: [to a visibly annoyed Curtis] Frooty O's are NOT cat food.
Curtis: She likes them.
Nathan: She does not like them. The bowl is full. And even if she did - EVEN if she loved them, even if she ate them everyday, she would die within a week, because this CRAP has absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever.
Curtis: Yeah, but they sure taste good.
Nathan: They're not life-sustaining Curtis! Technically they're not even food!

I really don't know how to describe this show. On the one hand it's a situation comedy, with a rather odd set-up. On the other it has no laugh track, apart from a few main people the cast keeps changing, and the main character is most likely seriously agoraphobic.

Don McKellar plays Curtis, who is antisocial to the point of never leaving his apartment. And I do mean never. Roommates come and go, he just stays home and watches TV. It sounds terribly dull, but the show is shockingly addictive. It's not for everyone, but if you see one episode you won't want to miss the rest.
