A spy does spy stuff, drinks, hits on women and makes a jackass of himself while being surprisingly competent.

A fun, light, series which has a whole lot of laugh-out-loud moments.

  • Though I've seen it all, I didn't begin taking notes until later on.

Stuck at a dead-end job, a guy ignores his girlfriend's nagging until she uses an old high school enemy to push his buttons.

I'm really really happy this series didn't get approval. This pilot is a steaming pile of shit. It has nothing to do with Clerks (1994) and so it cannot build on its mystique, and it isn't even particularly original or interesting on its own.

A failure of a delivery boy is frozen for a thousand years, where in the year 3,000 he's an interstellar delivery boy who continues to fail a lot.

A hilarious and intelligent show, with many subtleties. Watch an episode or three, and if you're interested then you'll enjoy the rest. Highly recommended.

I watched a couple of seasons before my interest petered out. I want to do other things with my time.
