ABC has refused to air those elusive final two new episodes of their canceled cult-hit "Better Off Ted" (that might cut into their "Bachelor Pad" time!), but at last, there's a way we see them.
The second and final season of "Better Off Ted" was released last week on iTunes and on Netflix Instant Watch (but not yet on dvd). That means you can purchase the episodes on iTunes or if you're already a Netflix subscriber, you can stream the episodes for free over your computer or Wii or however you watch your Netflix Instant shows.
"Better Off Ted" starred Jay Harrington as Ted, the R&D director at Veridian Dynamics, a powerful corporation that did experiments on its own employees, invented some truly evil products, and enforced twisted company policies. Their motto was "Money before People." The show also starred Portia de Rossi as Veronica, Ted's cold-hearted but hilarious boss. Jonathan Slavin and Malcolm Barrett were Phil and Lem, two laboratory scientists who worked for Ted and were justifiably terrified of Veronica.
Season One is also available to stream, and I encourage you to do that.
"Better Off Ted" was a great sitcom that really deserved better from ABC. The network's track record with this sitcom and with "Samantha Who" and a few others makes me nervous about the fates of some of the stronger comedies on their upcoming fall schedule (like "Happy Endings" and "Mr. Sunshine").
By the way, Netflix has a lot of great television shows available to stream for subscribers for free -- like Weeds, The Tudors, Lost, Friday Night Lights, Nurse Jackie, Breaking Bad, St. Elsewhere, Hill Street Blues, and many, many more.
