Not sure if anyone else saw this, but NBC.com has posted the first 6 episodes of this series for our viewing pleasure right here

The series, co-created by Conan O'Brien, is about an accountant who stumbles into a life of private investigating.

I watched the first six episodes and it is actually pretty funny. I hope it does well because the show has promise. Andy Richter is hilarious and the supporting cast is great as well. Buster from Arrested Development is in it!

I had several problems loading some of the episodes though...so just be warned.

A great show that should not have been cancelled.

Everyone kept talking about how funny the show was. I like Andy Richter and I watched a few eps...but it just didn't click with me. Didn't laugh once. :-(

If you guys haven't seen Andy Barker yet, you should! Including you Dennis! *shakes fist*

Seriously though, it's hilarious... despite the fact that it was cancelled before a single episode ever aired. It's on DVD, but I'm pretty sure all 6 episodes are on Hulu for free. So get on that!

Somewhere in hell, some lucky guy's putting the wood to a quality broad.

To be honest it's probably not a great bargain, episodes per dollar-wise, especially since they're all available on Hulu for free. However they did make sure to load it with extras, including commentaries for each episode, a retrospective and several making-of docs (including one inside the writers room). But whatever form you watch it in I heartily endorse the show.

that's kind of why I've held off at the moment, but I do want to support companies that put unsuccessful but good shows on DVD

I feel you on that one. Shout! Factory is the king of cancelled TV shows, also helping put My So-Called Life and Freaks and Geeks on DVD a year or two back (and of course Max Headroom).

you know, I don't think I ever saw an episode of My So-Called Life, which is odd considering my age.

You totally should. For my money, My So-Called Life is a fantastic show. A lot of people hovering around the fanboy demographic tend to prefer Freaks & Geeks (also great), which is the less "wussy" version of the same premise, I suppose. But each episode of MSCL is so thematically rich, so tightly-scripted and emotionally raw that I can't help but love it. Plus Claire Danes gives one of the best "voice-over performances" ever.

Translation: Ribbons couldn't look away from Jordan Catalano's dreamy eyes.

Jared Leto has never been dreamier. Except for that movie where he shot John Lennon.
