Arli$$: the Best of Arli$$, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Comedic actor Robert Wuhl sends up the high-profile world of professional athletes and their agents in HBO's long-running comedy Arliss, a serialized Jerry Maguire with an emphasis on show-me-the-money greed and absolutely none of the mushy stuff. The fun is always lighthearted; and Wuhl -- as "sports Super Agent" Arliss Michaels -- offers a well-balanced mix of win-at-any-cost avarice and old-fashioned sports idealism, with able support from office mates Jim Turner, Michael ...

Barnes & Noble
Comedic actor Robert Wuhl sends up the high-profile world of professional athletes and their agents in HBO's long-running comedy Arliss, a serialized Jerry Maguire with an emphasis on show-me-the-money greed and absolutely none of the mushy stuff. The fun is always lighthearted; and Wuhl -- as "sports Super Agent" Arliss Michaels -- offers a well-balanced mix of win-at-any-cost avarice and old-fashioned sports idealism, with able support from office mates Jim Turner, Michael Boatman, and Sandra Oh. Arliss always scores most effectively when its guest cameos click, and the 13 "Best" episodes included in this collection truly represent the show's A team. The luminaries woven into the stories here include Marcus Allen, Ernie Banks, Yogi Berra, Roger Clemens, Tonya Harding, Juwan Howard, Roy Jones Jr., Tara Lipinski, Tommy Lasorda, Cheryl Miller, Pete Sampras, George Steinbrenner, and Dave Winfield. Although the "acting" in these cameos varies widely, the walk-ons lend an air of believability to Arliss's often surreal world and will only enhance the collection's charm in years to come.
