Storyline

In this sitcom, British ex-pat Euan Pierce has it made: after brilliant studies he got a super Wall Street job which pays fabulously, so he can easily afford every luxury to appeal to the ladies, even though his natural killer charm -great looks and even smoother talk- is usually more then enough to make them line up to satisfy his healthy young appetite. He generously shares his splendid penthouse with his American college roomy, Mike Platt, who has absolutely no style, self-confidence or panache but took a dead-end altruistic job and has an even more up-tight, bossy girlfriend, Liz Lombardi. Their most frequent guest is Vietnamese deadbeat waiter Chau Presley, who never ceases boasting, especially his supposed sexual conquests, but never succeeds in anything. Euan's neighbor is the rich, popular but stupid and arrogant rap star Nathan 'Status Quo', who holds court with even dumber sycophants and a stream of groupies and reporters. Written by KGF Vissers

Off-Centre: an extremely funny comedy series
21 August 2007 | by a_takatsSee all my reviews

Off Centre has to be one of, if not the Funniest Comedies I have ever seen... You Know!

All the characters have a quirkiness about them... especially John Cho's character Chau, a Vietnamese restaurant worker / owner. The other characters are Euan an English stud, Mike an American dork (with principles) who roomed together at Oxford. As well as Status Quo an extremely sensitive and cultured gangster rapper (the mix is extremely funny). Besides the 4 guys there is the one girl who goes out with Mike but adds to the humour. There are also a mix of famous extras from Carmen Electra to Eugene Levy to Jason Biggs to Shannon Elizabeth as well as some characters who moved onto Heroes.

This show gives laughters from beginning to end and after the first couple of episodes, once you relate to the characters, you are hooked. The writers did an amazing job in finding the exact humour in each character and the actors perform them to a T (especailly John Cho). The story line / lines usually surround the premise that Euan is a stub and gets lots of girls while Mike and Chau do not. However, within this premise there are many sub stories that are just so strange and weird and that's what makes it extremely funny!

It is a pity that WB cancelled the show and didn't let them finish their 2nd season... what a waste - WB could have had high ratings, entered a new market for comedy or sold the show to another network, but apart from being their loss... it was ours too.
