Trivia:
The second aired episode is a parody of clip show episodes, meant to reflect back on the first episode that was produced. The first episode never aired, so the entire episode was filled with flashbacks to an unaired episode.See more »
Quotes:
Randal Graves:[Randal's opening argument to the all-black jury of NBA players] Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Dante Hicks is just like you. He lurves grape soda. He knows what it's like when the guy at the supermarket won't take your "food stamps". Or how it feels to wait all month for your "welfare check".
[waving his arms from side to side]
Randal Graves:Hey! Ho! Hey! Ho! Thank you.
Judge Reinhold:Wow...
Dante Hicks:Great... now the jury hates us.
Randal Graves:Nonsense. I've got them eating out of my hand.

FAQ

What happened to the Clerks animated movie? Why don't they bring back the TV show?

4 out of 4 people found the following review useful.
Hilarious, but disjointed., 8 July 2000
Author: Robert Morgan from Indianapolis

It's really too bad that Clerks was up against the two highest rated events of the summer season- Survivor on CBS and the NBA Finals on NBC. I'm sure that the unfortunate scheduling contributed heavily to the lack of ratings; in some markets, including mine, the second episode wasn't even shown, because of the heavyweight competition. (Luckily, my local station sent me a videocassette of ep. 2.)

Both episodes of Clerks were hilarious, but not uniformly so. There are parts of both episodes that dragged, and parts of both that actually kind of shocked me. (Randall explaining to the jury how alike they and Dante are; the Indian convenience store). My friends and I, while enjoying the show immensely, realized there was no way the average viewer would even understand much of the cartoon, let alone appreciate the in-jokes and find the whole affair funny- in fact, there are parts of each that many would find downright offensive. While we wish the show would have continued (and perhaps with more equal competition, the show could have matured into something really good), perhaps it's best that the shows just come out on video for the benefit of the converted.

My main problem with the show was the stylistic similarity to "The Critic"- most of the jokes were not only pop-culture based, but they were essentially non-sequiters, contributing nothing to the story. Their use in the original movie fit in with the feel of the film- that of bored coworkers who are just killing time. They felt awkward, though, nestled in the sitcom-like plot of the cartoon.

All in all- recommended for the Clerks fans out there; everyone else may want to see the movies before seeing the cartoon.
