Premise: An edgy lampoon of 1950s optimism in the saga of two small-time businessmen who try to strike it rich in Pittsburgh. Produced by David Letterman, it follows the moneymaking misadventures of the owners of Paradise Storage: naive Emmett and his opportunistic partner, Earl, who never met a sweetheart deal that didn't turn sour. Frenetically paced, and filmed in black and white, it goes beneath the benign sitcom-driven images of that decade to serve up dark, biting visions with humor.
