Holden and Banky are comic book artists. Everything's going good for them until they meet Alyssa, also a comic book artist. Holden falls for her, but his hopes are crushed when he finds out she's a lesbian.
Joey Lauren Adams,
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
Following the events of the movie 'Clerks', Dante Hicks still works at the Quick Stop, and his best friend Randall Graves still 'works' at the video store (even though he spends most of his time figuring out ways to get Dante into trouble). However, with the arrival into town of diabolical billionaire megalomaniac Leonardo Leonardo, their lives are about to get more unusual, even if their jobs remain as unsatisfying and tedious as before. Soon, Dante and Randall find themselves thrown headlong into crazy adventures involving, in no particular order, a monkey, Little League Baseball, Korean animators, Canadian exports, lesbian ex-girlfriends of Randall, Judge Reinhold, the Matrix, refridgerator door locks and numerous unwarranted 'Star Wars' references. And as always, they receive very little in the way of constructive help from slackers Jay and Silent Bob.Written by
Kevin Smith: [jaws] Twice in episode 3, when the clerks were talking about the virus outbreak, Randal compares it to Jaws, "There's water in the toilet. Sharks swim in water. I rest my case." Again later, they mention "Jaws". See more »
[Randal's opening argument to the all-black jury of NBA players]
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Dante Hicks is just like you. He lurves grape soda. He knows what it's like when the guy at the supermarket won't take your "food stamps". Or how it feels to wait all month for your "welfare check".
[waving his arms from side to side]
Hey! Ho! Hey! Ho! Thank you.
Great... now the jury hates us.
Nonsense. I've got them eating out of my hand.

Each episode begins with a tongue-in-cheek disclaimer. The joke at the end of the disclaimer changes with each episode. See more »
Episode 2 features a scene where Dante and Randal watch a film called "Flintstone's List," an obvious takeoff on "Schindler's List." While it appears on the DVD, it was cut from the TV airing. See more »
Although it would have been passable as an original television show, it had the misfortune of disgracing the best comedic movie that I've ever seen. While the movie Clerks was deep and funny on many levels, the show displayed a disgusting amount of shallowness. The characters so well conceived and portrayed in the movie were discarded and replaced with annoyingly main stream likenesses. Where Randall was an intelligent smart alec, he is now a non-caring idiot. Previously, Dante had been a guy with a bad luck streak cause by his inability to stand up for himself. While the bad luck is still there, it seems to have only a cosmic explanation. Jay and Bob were once dealers who knew where they were and were secure in it, with a sense of humor to boot. Now, they're imbecilic menaces who apparently have nothing better to do. Gone is the sophisticated humor (bet you twenty bucks you don't get that movie) which was actually funny, now replaced by pop culture references similar to the Simpsons but with worse characters. Call me a purist, but the original movie was far too deep and meaningful for this to do it any justice. Avoid especially if you love the movie clerks.
