S02E09 - The Jerk, Too (1984)

This week we tackle another pilot gone wrong and this time it went REALLY wrong. The Jerk, Too is an alternate universe for - you guessed it - the Steve Martin classic The Jerk. Sadly, there is no Steve Martin here but we get all kinds of nods to the original (just not any of the funny ones). Thankfully, a Randy Newman-alike gives us a classic banger of a theme song so all is not lost.
