Storyline

Live action unaired pilot based on the cult movie of the same name. Convenience store clerk Dante has to deal with his disappointed but caring father who once again tries to convince him to make something out of his life and get a "real" job, his serious girlfriend Veronica who wants them to spend a romantic evening together but he just can't find the time, as well as the store's regular friendly underage pathological shoplifter Ray. Dante's priorities change however when Cliff, an old acquaintance of his who once betrayed him when they were friends as teens, suddenly shows up to brag about his successful new career and Veronica agrees to go to his party. Dante's best friend Randal, a video store clerk who works next door to Dante and loves spoiling movies for his customers, agrees to help primarily because he's bored. They also take with them their friend Todd, the next door ice cream clerk who's obsessed with Sandra, a gorgeous friendly cool girl who sometimes likes to hang out with...

The Pilot Episode
2 June 2006 | by champ-2000See all my reviews

Well it was very cheap set, "Saved by the Bell" type sets (That was Brian O'Halloran quote) and was horrible.

They ditched Jay and Bob, added other reoccurring clerks like the ice cream man and took everything good out of clerks and added in plots that involved like people in the store talking about their lives and horrible lines like that.

It was awful and if your lucky you can find the 3 minutes of footage running around the net somewhere.

Well "lucky" isn't really the right word. But yeah, After Miramax sold the rights to WB, WB then sold them out again for a sitcom. The sitcom was made into a pilot that Brian, Jeff, and Marlin tried out for and got rejected. Horrible, Horrible stuff.
