The misadventures of a 30-year-old paper-boy (played by Late Night alum Chris Elliot) and his wacky parents. Such show topics included the eating of a space alien, a robotic paper-boy and numerous beheadings. Get a Life was also one of the first television shows that featured the killing of the star of the show.Written by

The episode "Spewey and Me" was intended as a parody of the science fiction films "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" (1982) and "Mac and Me" (1988), and ends with the alien being eaten. The writers were reportedly worried that the studio executives would reject the episode, but executive Peter Chernin loved the idea and fully supported them. See more »
In the Rhino DVD releases (two of them were produced), there are mastered episodes which do not contain the laugh track. However, sometimes crew members can be heard laughing in the mastered episodes. See more »
Why did this show die? I thought it was one of the funniest series on television ever. Chris Elliot is Chris Peterson, a thirty year old newspaper delivery boy who still lives with his parents.
This show should be resurrected. My favorite episode is when Chris orders a submarine via the mail and he builds it in his bathtub. Him and his father then get trapped inside and are running out of air.
