Storyline

Odd Job Jack is an animated comedy about one guy's misadventures in temporary employment and his quest to get a full-time life. In the year 2003, in an unnamed Canadian megacity, JACK RYDER (voiced by Don McKellar) searches for a way out of limbo. Twenty-five years old and fresh out of university - sporting a degree in sociology and shouldering a hefty student debt - Jack is decidedly unsure what he wants to do with the rest of his life. In fiscal desperation, Jack signs on at a temp agency - Odd Jobs Unlimited - where he finds himself placed in a variety of usual and unusual postion by Betty Styles, his ever-optimistic (and in Jack's opinion, totally attractive) career counsellor. In every episode, Jack tries out a new job, introducing him to an array of interesting characters, unique experiences, and different perspectives on the working world.

One of the few watchable shows on The Comedy Network
23 August 2007 | by (toronto) – See all my reviews

Don McKellar is fantastic and in this show he is Jack, a guy who is always being given jobs that always end up driving him crazy or being completely screwed up by him. He has two friends, one more or less normal one and one who is a complete computer geek who hates leaving his house. He also has a huge crush on the job placement girl who is always giving him his new careers. This isn't a great show but it is also far from terrible. I give it a six out of ten. It is a shame that makes it one of the best shows on The Comedy Network but it is unfortunately true, they can't seem to make a decent show more than once every five or ten years. Hopefully Odd Job Jack is a step in the right direction. Puppets Who Kill was also a decent show but they took it off the air for some reason.
