YMMV: Profit
  • Audience-Alienating Premise: This show featured a Villain Protagonist before other shows dabbled with the concept. It didn't last a single season.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Profit's closing monologues often outlined the rather psychopathic life lessons that the viewer should take from the episode.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The show was a surprisingly big hit in France.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Jim Profit is a complete amoral sociopath but you just root for him. His only goal is to become President of Acquisitions at Grayson & Grayson and thereby control one of the most powerful economic blocks in the country. He manages to repeatedly get away with blackmail, murder and even maiming the company to frame others for it and get ahead himself. He expertly manipulates his colleagues, their families and anyone else he deals with. Any attempts to foil him often feed right into his hand, as he always has a backup plan ready and is outsmarted in one of his many plots exactly once in the entire series.
