Sneaky, madcap, and completely addictive, Better Off Ted is a delicious lampoon of the corporate culture that puts profits over anything resembling human decency. Ted Crisp (Jay Harrington) is the breezy, confident manager of the research and development department of Veridian Dynamics--a massive multinational corporation that does everything, from growing cowless meat to weaponizing pumpkins. Crisp has already had an affair with his blissfully heartless boss, Veronica (Portia de Rossi, from the cult favorite sitcom Arrested Development), which inhibits him from having an affair with the smart, lovely, somewhat neurotic new product tester Linda (Andrea Anders, Joey), lest he be seen as a guy who sleeps around the office. He has to look after his top two research scientists, Lem and Phil (Malcolm Barrett and Jonathan Slavin), who are brilliant but socially hapless, and his precocious young daughter Rose (Isabella Acres), whose mother abandoned them to save countries in Africa. From this web of relationships are woven absurd stories about cryogenically freezing employees, motion sensors that don't detect dark skin, Medieval Fight Club, hair growth formula, and phosphorescent squirrels. Better Off Ted is that rare sitcom with a genuinely distinctive sense of humor, one that may take a few moments to catch--but once you've gotten in sync, the show is gut-bustingly funny. De Rossi has the most flamboyant role and gets to be deliriously merciless, but the whole cast is impeccable. The show was created by Victor Fresco, who previously conceived the brief-lived but much-loved Andy Richter Controls the Universe. The only flaw of The Complete First Season is the lack of any extras--a show with this much wit and imagination deserves some bonus features. --Bret Fetzer

One of the producers claimed that the reason it was cancelled is because the network desired higher ratings with little to no advertising. Also, the show was a "hit" with the wrong crowd;people who tend to be critical thinkers and are notoriously hard to sell to, meaning the little interest from advertisers.
Now it is considered a "cult classic" that will never come together again as all of the people associated with the show have moved on to other projects. Buy this now (I have it on DVD) and enjoy a fleeting wisp of glory that was "Better off Ted".
Now if they would only produce a similar show about our government. Now that would be fun!
I have worked in large corporations, manufacturing, advertising, etc. and this satire rings true and really amuses me. Highly recommend
Anyway, this show has a great cast, great writing, great (Phony) Commercials, and is only missing one thing- The laugh track! Actually, I hadn't really noticed until a friend who I turned on to the show mentioned it.....I have a high tolerence for laugh tracks, having grown up with Gilligans Island and I Love Lucy, but how refreshing to not have it in your face- Laugh when YOU want to!
Even though Veridian Dynamics is truly an evil corporation, I watch this show and can't help but want to work there- And I'm now retired....I'd let them freeze me- Aiyeeeeeeee!
