Trivia

One interstitial ad featured Damus of the "Famous Damus" cookies brand. He began by saying, "Taste the flour to make sure it's fresh." Then he paused, saying, "Mmm, that is good. Really good." He proceeds to scoop mounds of flour into his mouth. Time passes and the narrator shouts that the cookies are done, but the audience only sees a disheveled kitchen covered in flour with a powdery Damus licking the bag. "Don't judge me", he says.

Underrated
3 July 2007 | by smurfhaterSee all my reviews

This was one of the best TV series i've seen to date even though they're all just reruns now they still keep me entertained. THe guy who plays Marty is definitely the best actor of the lot but then again being dead lets the character be a lot more emotive as hardly anyone can see him.

Summary ----------

This show is about two friends who used to do everything together having to part ways, when Marty(the joker) is dared by Steve to eat a 6 month old hamburger from under his bed, even Marty dieing is slightly funny as the writer makes fun of the cliché walls spinning around. Marty now travels to heaven by elevator and is confronted by a Giant Head who is the cousin of God called Rod. After Marty gets past the fact that Headdy(Rod) isn't going to eat him he is assigned to be the guardian angel of his grieving friend Steve Boshamp. The series sees them getting into many wacky circumstances were Marty usually does more harm than good.

Some of the highlights in the show in my opinion are when Steve's family members would walk in on Marty doing something strange, for e.g. in one of the episodes Steve's aunt walks in and Steve is in a barber chair with a big moustache.
