Series Return: The Knights of Prosperity

The Knights of Prosperity: Season 1, Episodes 10 & 11 "Operation: Rent Money"/"Operation: Steal the Safe" (B)

I was in for a pleasant suprise when I turned on the first two of the remaining filmed episodes of this uneven comedy series that was cancelled a few months ago. These episodes are flat-out hilarious, and while their hilarity does not quite make up for the inane nature of the plotlines (unlike, say, "Two and a Half Men"), it comes pretty close. Maz Jobrani is so funny as Gary, especially his torture techniques which he quotes directly from Sayid from "Lost". I like that they are now robbing Ray Ramano is great, and he does a fine job playing a washed-out, depressed version of himself. Only two more episodes of this show, but it looks like it may go out in a knee-slapping blaze of glory. Do not expect too much logic when tuning in to this show, but prepare yourself for more than a few laughs.
