Get a Life
Get a Life was a demented, surreal 1990 sitcom that aired on Fox. It starred Chris Elliott as Chris Peterson, a friendly yet slightly psychotic 30 year old paperboy and all-around loser. The show followed Chris' strange adventures, which included becoming a male model, stalking beautiful women and rescuing vomiting aliens. Needless to say, the darkness and weirdness of the show got it cancelled after two seasons.

The show gained a cult following, and after years of DVD sets for the show being stuck in Development Hell (due to Show-runner David Mirkin's insistence that all episodes be released uncut, including the music), a complete series set was finally released on September 18, 2012.
