Free for All

1 Season
Created for Colorado State University's The Collegian in 1992, Brett Merhar's cult comic strip Free for All achieved nationwide prominence when it was syndicated by King Features beginning in 1998. The TV-cartoon version of the property was every bit as hilariously tasteless and mean-spirited as the original strip, if not more so. Merhar himself provided the voice of protagonist Clay Zeeman, a twentysomething slacker who became a millionaire after suing a fast-food restaurant. The episodes focused on the friendship between Clay and his "loser" buddy, impoverished community-college student Johnny G. Jenkins (voiced by Jonathan Silverman). Others in the cast included Angus, a doped-up ferret who'd escaped from a corporate testing lab; Johnny's father, Doug, a non-charming drunk; Johnny's oversexed grandma, a character right out of Playboy; and sexy girl-next-door Paula (voiced by Juliette Lewis). Also appearing in animated form were a number of pop-culture icons, some of whom actually provided their own voices. Merriwether Williams of SpongeBob SquarePants fame served as head writer. The initial seven episodes of Free for All were animated by Film Roman (The Simpsons, King of the Hill); the series premiered July 11, 2003, on the Showtime cable network.

Dead Like Me

2 Seasons
While the cable TV dramedy Dead Like Me may resemble a bizarro version of Touched by an Angel, series creator Bryan Fuller insisted that his inspiration was Piers Anthony's novel On a Pale Horse, in which a mere mortal is forced by circumstance to replace "Mr. Death." Ellen Muth stars as Georgia "George" Lass, an 18-year-old perennial loser whose inability to stay in school or hold down a job is matched by the disdain in which she is held by her family. Given George's miserable track record, it is hardly surprising that she is killed in a stupid freak accident, crushed to death by a fragment of the Mir space station's toilet. Upon realizing that she is dead, George finds herself in the company of three other decedents: vapid actress Daisy (Laura Harris), self-styled lothario Mason (Callum Blue), and streetwise Roxy (Jasmine Guy). Assembled by the abrasive Rube (Mandy Patinkin), George and her new companions have been assigned to a post-mortem "Reaper" team, dedicated to helping other departed souls make the transition between life and death. The team's job was complicated by the fact that all of the Reapers retained the memories and emotions of their "living" days, and all of them had left behind unresolved issues that would have to be resolved in the afterlife. Dead Like Me debuted June 27, 2003, on Showtime.

8 Seasons
Produced for cable's Showtime service, the half-hour Weeds starred Mary-Louise Parker as suburban housewife Nancy Botwin, whose comfy, affluent existence was shattered by the unexpected death of her husband. With no other readily available source of income, Nancy decided to service an ever-growing consumer demand -- by selling marijuana to other white-bread suburbanites. Purchasing her pot from streetwise dealer Conrad Shepard (Romany Malco) and his aunt, supplier Heylia James (Tonye Patano), Nancy set up her new business enterprise using a bakery as a front, with the assistance of city councilman Doug Wilson (Kevin Nealon) -- all the while keeping her activities a secret from her snooty, traditionalist best friend, PTA president Celia Hodes (Elizabeth Perkins). Also in the cast were Alexander Gould and Hunter Parrish as Nancy's sons, Shane and Silas; Justin Kirk as her overgrown-slacker brother-in-law, Andy; Andy Milder as Celia's feeble husband, Dean Hodes; Allie Grant as the Hodes' overweight daughter, Isabelle; and Martin Donovan as Peter, a single dad whom Nancy fell for -- and who turned out to be a DEA agent. The series' ironic theme music was the Womenfolk's "Little Boxes," a satiric paean to split-level conformity. One of those series invariably described as "smart and sexy" by in-the-know critics, the Golden Globe-winning Weeds debuted August 7, 2005.
