Very funny, acting is great, and the cast is awesome.

Ultimately, I really found much of this show to be laugh-out-loud funny.
K. Harris
Very unsuitable for young children and religious families!

With the proliferation of cable television, traditional sitcoms have become fewer and farther between. It seems like everyone is racing to the airwaves with the rudest, most obnoxious stories possible! While some might be distressed by this phenomenon, the liberation has created some of the boldest and funniest shows imaginable. From the FX stable (It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Archer, The League, Louie), to Comedy Central (South Park, Workaholics), to premium channels like HBO and Showtime--the choices are really endless. And it's a constant game of one-upsmanship as shows consistently push the boundaries of good taste and oftentimes walk right over them. "Call Me Fitz" is a Canadian series (airing in the States on DirectTV) that aspires to join this notorious brood of ill-mannered television comedy.

"Call Me Fitz" is set in the always amusing world of used car sales. Jason Priestly plays an unscrupulous salesman working at his father's dealership. Priestly has just about every vice imaginable from booze, to ladies, to drugs, to larceny. Priestly is clearly having a field day exhibiting this plethora of bad behavior (a far cry from Brandon Walsh days), and the show asks us to revel in these unpleasant acts. The first couple of episodes set up a continuing story thread as Priestly is responsible for an accident that puts a potential buyer in a coma. As he does everything to evade culpability, the injured woman's daughter and a creepy little girl (just watch, I can't explain) try to uncover the truth. Simultaneously, a new partner joins the dealership who claims to be Priestly's conscience (or maybe his brother or maybe just a guy who likes bunny suits). Both of these developments have long range repercussions throughout this season's episodes.

The risqué genre tagged the "dirtbag comedy" sitcom has typically been set in regrettable American venues: the trailer-trashiest hangouts of Southern California (MY NAME IS EARL), say, or a piece of suburbia unaccountably relocated to Colorado's Western Slope (SOUTH PARK), or the parts of Philadelphia's South Side from which tourists are vigorously warned away (IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA). But that changed in 2010, when one of the rudest, most scabrous, profane, -- and funny -- of the dirtbag lot started production in Canada. The lead character? Not an economic also-ran but the self-described "best used-car salesman this side of Detroit" and his more-than-dysfunctional family. Played by Jason Priestley, who heretofore offered us one of TV-land's most virtuous characters on Fox's long-running BEVERLY HILLS 90210, Richard Fitzpatrick is a strutting, arrogant, sharp-suited, moderately intelligent but almost unconsciously seductive playboy who casts himself in the Frank Sinatra mold, Rat Pack "Ring-a-Ding-Ding" and all. His career gives him ample access to vintage GTOs and Eldo's, as well as the more generic cheapsters he is forever pushing at "thousands over book" with business ethics that would make Bernie Madoff blush.

CALL ME FITZ opens when Fitz and a more-than-willing female customer are out for a test-drive in one of his swank convertibles. Fitz swerves to avoid a rabbit and the car crashes, leaving his intended customer dying but Fitz barely bruised. In the immediate aftermath, a tall, awkward man appears at the crash site: he introduces himself as "Larry" (Ernie Grunwald) and explains that he is Fitz's conscience who has been liberated by the crash and is out to save Fitz's soul.

I think this is a pretty good show. My husband, on the other hand, loves it. He finds it hilariously entertaining. I think it's more of a guy thing. Some of the humor is too base for my taste. All in all its an entertaining show.

It's been a while since I've seen a show that I can't wait to see again.
Very funny, acting is great, and the cast is awesome. Recommend seeing both seasons. Season 3 just started.

I can't believe how tightly written this show is the first season I had to watch over and over because I was laughing so hard I missed half the jokes. This Fitz guy slings insults back and forth with such skill. The show is very much written in a style that reflects the Frank Sinatra era of speaking in films up dated to a year 2000 language. Also it's nice having really catchy Jazz music in the show. All thumbs up for this show.

Not a great comedy but watchable. If you're into this kind of comedy you'll love it. Never made me laugh out loud or anything, but if you like The League and that sort of humor, it's fine. I prefer comedy to humor.

Awesome show! Great writing! Great acting! Very unsuitable for young children and religious families! This show is going to be an Arrested Development in five years. People will discover it and wonder why the hell it never caught on. There will be enough interest to put together another season only available on Netflix. Similar genre to Wilfred. Some of this stuff is just a little bit beyond the reach of your everyday TV watcher.
