Goofs

In the pilot, Jack and Joanne attempt to get a background on Jim Profit by contacting the sheriff in Tulsa (mentioning repeatedly that they called and visited Tulsa). However, the county building that is shown is clearly labeled "Oklahoma - Johnson County." There is no Johnson County, Oklahoma. There is a Johnston County in south-central Oklahoma, but the city of Tulsa is in Tulsa County in northeastern Oklahoma. See more »

Quotes

Joanne Meltzer: There are ways to undelete files, Jack.
Jack Walters: Don't you need a search warrant for something like that?
Joanne Meltzer: I forgot how old fashioned you are. It's refreshing.

This show was ahead of its time
8 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I couldn't believe that a black comedy THIS black made it to television, and I loved every minute of it. I had a feeling the show wouldn't last because it was so different. The lead character wasn't someone you'd want as a friend (or enemy) and he didn't pay the anticipated consequences for his treacherous acts. The recent FX show "Damages" has a similar lead; Glenn Close's character is appealing despite her questionable ethics. Still, Profit was unique in the degree to which the lead character's behavior bordered on evil ... but his piercing, deep-set eyes and heavy lashes made up for it all. I've never forgotten the show and I've followed Andrian Pasdar's career since then because I was so taken with him in Profit.
