Storyline

The world needs more Gunter Vogler. The world needs more Alan Spencer.

I'm writing this 8 years after the show came out. I recently decided to watch/enjoy it again and realized I never wrote a proper review, so here it is.

One short season of six incredible episodes is such a shame. This show should be on season eight by now. The dark, sarcastic, and anti-PC humor are a delight. The dialog is snappy and filled with great one-liners which I will not spoil.

The low-star reviews are for people that have sticks firmly lodged up their backsides.
