Product Description

Meet twenty-something Sam Sullivan, the youngest executive at a major airline, and the first among his friends to land a real job. Half slacker, half suit, Sam precariously straddles both worlds as his desire to climb the corporate ladder is matched only by his desire - and ability - to party hardy with his wild and crazy roommates. There's Sully, Sam's hedonistic older brother who refuses to grow up, Piper, Sam's college buddy whom he secretly has a crush on, and Lizzy, the ditzy bartender who keeps the party rolling! Funny, fresh, and wildly irreverent, The Loop will have you flying high. Includes all seven Season One episodes.

Take a pair of bumbling brothers and mix in a couple of hot female roommates, and you've got The Loop, a sitcom that hopefully isn't representative of how immature the average twentysomething is these days. The seven episodes from the comedy's debut mini season--which aired from March to April 2006--focuses on the haphazard life of Sam (Bret Harrison), a brilliant, young airline executive referred to by his boss as "Thesis" because of his uncanny ability to remember everything there is to know about airplanes and the airline industry. He shares a Chicago apartment with his secret crush Piper (Amanda Loncar), their bartender buddy Lizzy (Sarah Mason), and his inept, unemployed older brother Sully (Eric Christian Olsen). That Sully has a name better suited for a household pet than a grown man is fitting, since he probably should get smacked with a newspaper every now and again to keep him in line.

The supporting players are actually more likeable and enjoyable to watch than the four stars. As Sam's overeducated personal assistant Darcy, Joy Osmanski delivers her lines with deadpan sarcasm similar to Janeane Garafalo's speech pattern. And Mimi Rogers is wonderful in her role as Meryl, a cougar continually on the prowl for Sam. The juicy part takes advantage of the former Mrs. Tom Cruise's beauty, as well as her surprisingly spot-on comedic timing. But the viewer is left wondering why she'd ever be attracted to Sam, who's a mere whelp of a boy, and a bumbling one at that. Still, she covers for him at work, advising him to "act like you've had uncontrollable diarrhea" when he returns from bailing out one of his friends. Also, look for entertaining guest appearances by Adam Brody (The O.C.) as the gay son of Sam's boss, and Masi Oka Heroes as a Chinese interpreter for a potential client. Though Piper is supposed to be the smart one (she's planning on going to medical school) who views an A-minus as a hideous failure, she is on Sully's level when it comes to common sense. She continually takes back her scummy boyfriend and is completely clueless about Sam's feelings for her, even though his longings would be obvious to Helen Keller. It's difficult to root for a couple when you don't really like either one of them. The better coupling would be Sully and ditzy Lizzy. While neither character is particularly well thought out, they can at least be fun to watch. --Jae-Ha Kim

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart and Funny March 6, 2007
This was one of our favorite shows and will be again as soon as Fox brings it back for Season 2!! Based in Chicago, "Thesis" (as his boss calls him) gets a job in upper management for an airline company right out of college (thanks to his thesis work)... he tries to be responsible, but things somehow always go awry... his friends have a few screws loose, his co-worker (an older woman) is constantly making advances toward him, and his boss... well, I guess you'll have to watch for yourself, because can't come up with a good way to describe him! Overall, this is a very smart and very funny fresh new comedy and definitely worth the money for the entire first season! I just checked the Fox website and Season 2 begins June 10th... I can't wait!

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, I'm ready for Season Two now! August 12, 2008
I watched "The Loop" when it was originally on the air and I was really happy when they brought it back for a second season. I just hope that this first season DVD sells well enough that they'll release the second season too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loop this one in before it's gone! April 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There aren't many well-scripted sitcoms on TV today, and The Loop is one of them. Not because it's not well-scripted, but because it's not on TV! Such a travesty. The Loop is one of the best television sitcoms to come around since Friends or Will & Grace. It's smart, edgy, and doesn't dumb down its comedy for viewers that would be better off watching goofy shows like According to Jim or reruns of Full House. I was fortunate enough to catch The Loop on Fox last year when it was on, and immediately purchased this DVD collection to re-watch and laugh along with the cast. I can't wait until Season Two comes out on TV in June, but I'm sad to think that nobody will catch it (or find it, for that matter) and that that will be the end of a truly fantastic sitcom written and acted by people who care about making their audience laugh out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrible intro, but great show !!! August 22, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remembered this show was on Fox and me only being in Middle School, I didn't understand most of the jokes.
I personally liked, and still do like it. It's definitely relate-able and also funny. Uses a similar formula that romantic comedies do: the main character can't seem to get the one they love cos there's a constant misunderstanding between the two of em'.
Definitely gets kinda' upsetting, but hey *shrug* !

Gotta' love The Loop !

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy! June 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Loop is something that you see about once every 10 years. It's a quirky, funny, realistic show about a guy who makes ends meet. From the weird way of cursing to the wacky stunts on the job, The Loop will keep you entertained for all 6 episodes and then the second season. Plus, the fact that the episodes are less than 25 minutes helps when you've got a time crunch.

5.0 out of 5 stars another funny show May 5, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the main guy of Loop is in the new "breaking in" show and was in "reaper". If you've seen the other shows you'll see that the love plot lines are similar but each has its own uniquely funny aspects. definitely is a show to check out. season two is okay (lost a lot of the original cast) but haven't seen it available for purchase yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY UNDER APPRECIATED August 21, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have no idea why this series was canceled so soon. It is very, very funny, makes me laugh out loud severel times per episode. Bret Harrison, and Mimi Rogers are both terrific. Also, Phillip Baker Hall is GREAT, some of you may remember him as "Bookman" the library cop on an episode of Seinfeld. This series is definitely worth checking out.
