Storyline

Live action unaired pilot based on the cult movie of the same name. Convenience store clerk Dante has to deal with his disappointed but caring father who once again tries to convince him to make something out of his life and get a "real" job, his serious girlfriend Veronica who wants them to spend a romantic evening together but he just can't find the time, as well as the store's regular friendly underage pathological shoplifter Ray. Dante's priorities change however when Cliff, an old acquaintance of his who once betrayed him when they were friends as teens, suddenly shows up to brag about his successful new career and Veronica agrees to go to his party. Dante's best friend Randal, a video store clerk who works next door to Dante and loves spoiling movies for his customers, agrees to help primarily because he's bored. They also take with them their friend Todd, the next door ice cream clerk who's obsessed with Sandra, a gorgeous friendly cool girl who sometimes likes to hang out with...

The pilot nobody wants you to see
16 June 2015 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I'm not quite sure how this would even work, but this sitcom pilot was made without prior knowledge (let alone consent) of Kevin Smith. He did write and direct the movie this is supposedly based on, but informing him about this spin-off seemed a bridge too far. In all fairness though: this barely has anything to do with the movie, which begs a lot of questions. "Clerks" was an underground hit, but is it really so famous that merely using its name gets you great ratings? And wouldn't actual fans of the movie turn this of after five minutes, noticing that the only thing it has in common is a store setting and characters named Dante and Randall (they don't even have Jay and Silent Bob)? There are really only two quite fascinating things about this pilot. The constant waves of canned laughter after lines you didn't even identify as jokes, and the fact that SNL alumnus Jim Breuer is in this playing Randall. Apart from that, this might just be the longest half hour of your life.
