Very enjoyable TV show
17 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Especially I really loved the episode where he tries to became math professor and he goes to the drugstore to buy the candies, just because he had to solve a problem about the price and weight of candies. "How many candies do you want?" "No, you have to tell me how many!"

Jolting hilarious!
