Storyline

Live action unaired pilot based on the cult movie of the same name. Convenience store clerk Dante has to deal with his disappointed but caring father who once again tries to convince him to make something out of his life and get a "real" job, his serious girlfriend Veronica who wants them to spend a romantic evening together but he just can't find the time, as well as the store's regular friendly underage pathological shoplifter Ray. Dante's priorities change however when Cliff, an old acquaintance of his who once betrayed him when they were friends as teens, suddenly shows up to brag about his successful new career and Veronica agrees to go to his party. Dante's best friend Randal, a video store clerk who works next door to Dante and loves spoiling movies for his customers, agrees to help primarily because he's bored. They also take with them their friend Todd, the next door ice cream clerk who's obsessed with Sandra, a gorgeous friendly cool girl who sometimes likes to hang out with...

Seen by few, and for good reason
15 August 2006 | by AnnoyingCustomer37See all my reviews

Let me start by saying that I've seen about ten seconds of this show, and that was enough for me.

The pilot episode never actually made it to television. Kevin Smith had nothing to do with it and didn't actually find out about it until about a year after it was made.

It's Clerks, "Saved by the Bell" style. There is a cameo from Keri Russel of "Felicity" fame and Jim Bruer plays Randal, but I'm sure they're erasing this off of their resumes.

The show takes place in a mall and is nothing at all like the movie of the same name. There is no Jay and Silent Bob (but there is a clumsy shoplifter who could arguably be the network's answer to Jay) and it is completely sanitized and cleaned up for television. The acting is crap and the jokes are terrible.

Stop complaining about not being able to see it. You are doing yourself a favor, and this is coming from a huge Clerks/Jim Bruer fan.
