Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist John Callahan presents this dark but humourous tale featuring a quadriplegic, a blind man, a man with hooks for hands and one guy who's just a head on a skateboard. It's dark, it's cynical, it's twisted and it's definitely a comedy. Starring Reilly, a foul-mouthed drunk who is paralyzed after being run over by a Rolls Royce and then given a mansion by the guilt-ridden driver, we get a first-hand account of a quadriplegic and his assortment of other differently-abled friends who live under the same roof. Quads is the world's first broadcast television series produced entirely in Macromedia Flash animation.

Paralysed for life
29 January 2002 | by bjerhoSee all my reviews

The series is about the alcoholic Reilly O'Reilly. It all begins when Reilly gets run over by a millionarie. The accident cripples him (he becomes a quadriplegic). The millionarie gives him a mansion in which he lives with his other handicapped friends, his girlfriend Franny, the alcoholic pub owner Griz and his gay australian physical therapist Spalding.

There are no heroes in these series. Everyone behaves very bad and no one acts politically correct. Jokes about disability is the main thing in this show. That makes it so funny to watch.
