Good show about 3 friends who are inadvertently fugitives of the law
13 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Josh Malina's deceased dad had been a baker. The dad forced Malina to eat it every day.Malina wants to get a toaster so he can toast the last piece of bread that his dad baked and sprinkle it on his grave as a form of revenge. He sends Panes to the bank to open an account and get a free toaster. Through a series of mishaps, Panes ends up robbing the bank and forcing himself, Malina and Black to become fugitives. Meanwhile the bank teller gets fired and opens up an entirely separate subplot. The rest of the show is a surprise. Some of the funniest parts are the opening sequences a la Masterpiece theater featuring various celebrities. This show is hysterical and original. The acting is phenomenal. A lot of slapstick as well. Even a little Liza Minelli in drag.
