Go To

Fresh Hell is a Web Video Series starring Brent Spiner (yes, that one) as a parody of himself. After some unspecified incident that left him more hated than O. J. 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).


  • As Himself: Brent Spiner plays a fictional version of himself here. So does LeVar Burton in one episode.
  • Berserk Button:
    • "Data! Daaaaaaata!" ... "Data, speak some Borg!!!"
    • "At least I'm not Brent Spiner!"
  • Butt-Monkey
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Valerie
  • Eccentric Millionaire: The Indian investor/venture capitalist, although he insists that he is in fact an eccentric billionaire, "With a B."
  • 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 an aspiring porn star.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Spiner and Dakota.
  • Jerkass:
    • Tommy
    • Spiner himself was apparently kind of a Jerkass to LeVar Burton back in the Trek days, something that comes back to bite him hard now.
  • The Klan: in the penultimate episode, Spiner is scheduled to appear on a talkshow along with a klansman and a spokesman of a pedophile organization.
  • 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.
  • The Shut-In: Valerie does not leave her appartment unless things get really, really serious.
  • Special Guest: LeVar Burton appears as himself in one episode.
  • Stress Vomit: It happens to Dakota during her first porn shoot.
  • The Talk Show with Host Name: Jolena in the morning!
