Storyline

Vic Morgenstein (formerly Vic Morgan) has been distributing gruesome Asian horror schlock and soft-core smut for years. His flagship video series, "Drunk Chicks" 1 through 6, consists entirely of inebriated young women exposing their breasts. These low rent titles have earned Vic a comfortable living, and a less-than savory reputation; everywhere he goes, young men recognize his face from the DVD cases and lift their shirts to him in salute. Vic was willing to accept his complete lack of respectability so long as the money kept rolling in. But that all changed when picked up a low budget, art-house movie called The Unreasonable Truth About Butterflies at a second rate film festival. Butterflies, directed by total unknown Rufus Marquez, went on to become something of darling on the indie festival circuit. Vic got hooked on respectability and came to realize his new dream: to produce and distribute "respectable" indie films. The only snag is Vic is bereft of things like taste and vision...

best IFC show ever
11 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i have never laughed more than the "TO KOENJI" scene in this TV comedy. i highly recommend this series for anyone who liked arrested 90210 development, or any other slightly off-the-wall comedy. best ever. since i have to write more, i will let you know that the claire character from 90210 appears as the co-producer of the independent film in this zany comedy. i enjoyed her on 90210 and i've really liked her in this TV show as well. the main man, vick morganstein, is also an excellent actor, and i would say, for the most part that all the actors are cast really well. i really hope you'll give this show a try, as i don't think enough really great shows like this exist.
