Web Video: Fresh Hell

Fresh Hell is a Web Original series starring Brent Spiner (yes, that one) as a parody of himself. After some unspecified incident that left him more hated than OJ Simpson, he's now washed up and all but forgotten except as an object of hatred or the butt of countless jokes.

An unconventional actress named Dakota moves in next door, and Spiner takes it upon himself to mentor her (partly because he enjoys the way she fawns over him, and partly because of some slim hope that she has sufficient contacts to help him get his career back off the ground again).


Tropes:

  • Berserk Button "Data! Daaaaaaata!"
    • "At least I'm not Brent Spiner!"
  • Butt Monkey
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Valerie
  • Granola Girl: Also Valerie
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Dakota is very sweet and cheerful and has an almost child-like wide-eyed idealistic innocence. And she's also a porn star.
  • Jerk Ass: Tommy
    • Spiner himself was apparently kind of a Jerk Ass to LeVar Burton back in the Trek days, something that comes back to bite him hard now.
  • Noodle Incident: Little is mentioned of the details that ruined Spiner's career, other than it made him more hated than OJ Simpson and worse off than a woman whose face had been ripped off by a rottweiler.
  • Please Put Some Clothes On: Tommy has unconventional methods of determining trust.
    • Most of Spiner's students, actually!
  • Rousing Speech: He gives one in episode 2 to a heckler. It doesn't work.
    • He's somewhat more successful at a children's party though, after a shaky start.
