Storyline

Tom Peters has just moved to the small town of Jefferton, best known for its strip malls, buffet restaurants and run-down parks. Seeking to make a name for himself, Tom begins setting up meetings with the eccentric mayor of the town. Together, they develop a number of pointless ideas that never seem to go anywhere. Sometimes they seem to make things worse. Written by Civonos

Trivia

The show is based on a short film Tom Goes to the Mayor (2002) by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim which appeared in independent film festivals as well as on Tim and Eric's website. Tim and Eric sent copies of the short to a few of their favorite comedians including Bob Odenkirk who liked it so much he showed it to David Cross. Cross later made a cameo in the sequel Tom Goes to the Mayor Returns (2003). Odenkirk later worked with Tim and Eric to develop the short into a series. See more »

Steadily Improving
13 May 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The first couple of episodes of Tom were a little slow, but the show has been steadily improving. With the demise of Sealab, it becomes the second funniest show in the Adult Swim lineup, next to Robot Chicken. It has more than its share of catchphrases. It's difficult to watch for the first time because the show is so character based. But give it a try for a few episodes, and I think you'll start to come around. I've not yet seen Tim and Eric's webcomic, but Tom Goes to the Mayor has made me want to seek it out. The visual style of the show is very unusual, but not in a bad way. In fact, after a while it becomes remarkable when they switch to live action.
