Better Off Ted

ABC 2009

Ted, a successful but morally conscious man, runs a research and development department at a morally questionable corporation, Veridian Technologies. No achievement is too far fetched and no invention too unorthodox for Veridian. Ted loves his seemingly perfect job; he loves his superhuman boss, Veronica, and colleagues Lem, Phil and Linda, but he's starting to take a closer look at the company's extremely questionable practices... especially when they try to cryogenically freeze one of Ted's scientists for testing purposes.

This show is a GEM. It's so funny! If you haven't seen it you should give it a try.

Fun little show. Can't get enough of the Viridian Dynamics adverts. Nice and witty, with engaging characters.

I feel like if this show wasn't on ABC it would do a lot better. Or if it were made today. They should reboot.

This was an interesting one for me. Something about it just rubbed me the wrong way. I love surrealism and social commentary, and this show lacks neither, believe me. The humor just rarely hit the mark for me, and the weirdness rarely feels natural, neither does the humor for that matter. It's not a very funny show. And yet I still found myself wrapped up in the ridiculously absurd world the writers have built, and even found myself quite invested in some of the characters. It was definitely unlike anything I've seen before though, and I haven't seen anything like it since. I wouldn't ever watch it again, but it was an odd show that had its own charm and a very unique identity even if it was crafted in an overly blatant hamfisted manner. If you like weird stuff, watch it. I can't say you'll love it, but I think you'll enjoy how over the top this show can be. If you aren't a fan of surrealism, you'll likely find yourself shutting this off within the first five minutes of the pilot.

This show was clearly ahead of it's time. ABC should bring this back it's a great on it's face satirical comedy. Viridian Dynamics "Corporate Adverts" are witty bring it together.

This was such a fun sitcom, I hope they hadn't had cancelled it.

This show has to be one of the best comedy's that was on TV. To bad it only ran for 2 seasons which I blame ABC for not advertising it. This show could have been a hit. The characters, actors, writers all did a great job on this one, it's worth watching (even multiple times). There are some episodes that you will laugh so hard on you'll cry, it's that funny!

Amazing show, so sad it only had two seasons.

Excellent show. A pitty it died so early :(

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
