Get A Life
    #1049562 - 11/13/02 03:57 PM (14 years, 30 days ago)

Any fans of that t.v. show?  I loved it.  It was only on for what? a couple seasons though.  I saw maybe 5-6 episodes.  Most were pretty funny.  One of the best is when Chris is outraged by the ants he sees in his neighbors' take-out Chinese food (and the dead rat that falls out of his milk carton into his corn flakes) so he takes it upon himself to become a food inspector.  He gets caught up in corruption in the industry --turns a blind eye to the puppies being born in restaurant kitchens (because he is paid off 5 dollars).  Finally, sickened by the corruption, he breaks down and testifies before a senate subcommitee putting himself at risk --ala Meryl Streep in that movie about the chick who testifies against the nuclear industry.  The show usually had weird plots like that but they  worked because that dude Chris was so fuckin' bizarre. :laugh:

That show was sick hysterical. I like the scene where the guy falls out of something really high landing on the middle of the street, and somehow he lands on a mattress in the street and is safe. He's all grinning, but as the camera pans away you see a sign that says the mattress is full of TNT. HAhaha the irony
