Call Me Fitz

Currently my latest obsession is “Call Me Fitz”, my “new” favorite TV Show. Watched the first four episodes one after the other and thoroughly enjoyed this rather adult, quirky, dark comedy. Starring Jason Priestley who is great as Richard Fitzpatrick - or Fitz; most of you probably know him best as Brandon Walsh from “Beverly Hills, 90210”.

He plays morally bankrupt car salesman, who is forced to become business partners with his inner conscience, an off-beat do gooder intent on healing Fitz’s mangled psyche, played by Ernie Grunwald, one hilarious disaster at a time.

This two have a great chemistry, the other characters, all weird in their own little ways, blend together nicely with him into a working but dysfunctional family of colleagues in a car sales lot. I think the whole concept is original and very well implemented. It’s funny, (the whole 25 minutes long!), the character are likable and the stories are varying.
