Product Description

Handsome, substance-abusing used car salesman Richard "Fitz" Fitzpatrick torments his naïve co-workers, sleeps with any woman who has a pulse, and thinks nothing of it. Then one day, after a stunt that puts his customer in a hospital, he finally meets his conscience – in the flesh! Don’t miss this hilarious new comedy about a man who is literally forced to battle with his inner conscience – and share a desk with him.


Vendeur de voitures connu pour ses fréquents écarts de conduite, Richard « Fitz » Fitzpatrick se voit contraint de travailler avec un nouveau partenaire d’affaires, Larry, un homme profondément gentil qui n’est rien de moins que sa propre conscience. Et il est déterminé à corriger le comportement délinquant de Fitz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crass, rude, inappropriate and immensely funny! Aug. 20 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With foul mouth characters and ridiculous plots, this show is hilarious.

For Canadians: it's a raunchy and vulgar version of Trailer Park Boys meets Corner Gas

4.0 out of 5 stars A Family Comedy Of Bad Behavior, Used Cars, And A Conscience Named Larry Sept. 25 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
With the proliferation of cable television, traditional sitcoms have become fewer and farther between. It seems like everyone is racing to the airwaves with the rudest, most obnoxious stories possible! While some might be distressed by this phenomenon, the liberation has created some of the boldest and funniest shows imaginable. From the FX stable (It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Archer, The League, Louie), to Comedy Central (South Park, Workaholics), to premium channels like HBO and Showtime--the choices are really endless. And it's a constant game of one-upsmanship as shows consistently push the boundaries of good taste and oftentimes walk right over them. "Call Me Fitz" is a Canadian series (airing in the States on DirectTV) that aspires to join this notorious brood of ill-mannered television comedy.

"Call Me Fitz" is set in the always amusing world of used car sales. Jason Priestly plays an unscrupulous salesman working at his father's dealership. Priestly has just about every vice imaginable from booze, to ladies, to drugs, to larceny. Priestly is clearly having a field day exhibiting this plethora of bad behavior (a far cry from Brandon Walsh days), and the show asks us to revel in these unpleasant acts. The first couple of episodes set up a continuing story thread as Priestly is responsible for an accident that puts a potential buyer in a coma. As he does everything to evade culpability, the injured woman's daughter and a creepy little girl (just watch, I can't explain) try to uncover the truth. Simultaneously, a new partner joins the dealership who claims to be Priestly's conscience (or maybe his brother or maybe just a guy who likes bunny suits). Both of these developments have long range repercussions throughout this season's episodes.

After watching these initial two episodes, I honestly wasn't sure that I liked "Call Me Fitz." The jury was still out. Although Priestly was gung-ho, I felt like the writers pushed a little too hard for shock value as opposed to organic humor. But by the third episode, it suddenly all made sense. The characters started to be drawn in more detail and with the introduction of the great Joanna Cassidy (for a pivotal two episode arc as Priestly's unorthodox and absentee mother), "Fitz" established itself as a dysfunctional family sitcom. There is still plenty of workplace humor, especially with a rival dealership, but the heart of the show comes from the awkward interactions between father and son, brother and sister, and other familial combinations. Priestly's conscience Larry does, in fact, become a de facto family member and his innocent ways contradict everyone else's more outrageous behavior. His mission to redeem Priestly will not be an easy one. Ultimately, I really found much of this show to be laugh-out-loud funny. There is nudity and foul language, to be sure, and this is not for sensitive viewers.

The three disc DVD set includes all 13 episodes of Season One. Bonus features include behind-the-scene footage, cast interviews, and a gag reel. Again, if you like darker and more aggressive humor--"Call Me Fitz" is an easy recommendation. It took me a couple of show to warm up, but I've become a fan. KGHarris, 9/11.

5.0 out of 5 stars What does the Fitz say? "Ring-A-Ding-Ding." Jan. 18 2014
By Allen Smalling - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The risqué genre tagged the "dirtbag comedy" sitcom has typically been set in regrettable American venues: the trailer-trashiest hangouts of Southern California (MY NAME IS EARL), say, or a piece of suburbia unaccountably relocated to Colorado's Western Slope (SOUTH PARK), or the parts of Philadelphia's South Side from which tourists are vigorously warned away (IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA). But that changed in 2010, when one of the rudest, most scabrous, profane, -- and funny -- of the dirtbag lot started production in Canada. The lead character? Not an economic also-ran but the self-described "best used-car salesman this side of Detroit" and his more-than-dysfunctional family. Played by Jason Priestley, who heretofore offered us one of TV-land's most virtuous characters on Fox's long-running BEVERLY HILLS 90210, Richard Fitzpatrick is a strutting, arrogant, sharp-suited, moderately intelligent but almost unconsciously seductive playboy who casts himself in the Frank Sinatra mold, Rat Pack "Ring-a-Ding-Ding" and all. His career gives him ample access to vintage GTOs and Eldo's, as well as the more generic cheapsters he is forever pushing at "thousands over book" with business ethics that would make Bernie Madoff blush.

CALL ME FITZ opens when Fitz and a more-than-willing female customer are out for a test-drive in one of his swank convertibles. Fitz swerves to avoid a rabbit and the car crashes, leaving his intended customer dying but Fitz barely bruised. In the immediate aftermath, a tall, awkward man appears at the crash site: he introduces himself as "Larry" (Ernie Grunwald) and explains that he is Fitz's conscience who has been liberated by the crash and is out to save Fitz's soul. Since Larry is heir to Fitz's knowledge and experience, he raids Fitz's secret stash of cash, buys into the family car lot, and pesters Fitz at every opportunity to be less cynical, avaricious, suspicious, and libidinous, reforms which Fitz isn't the least interested in having, especially since they interfere with his plans to build a Rat Pack-retro bar called "The Summer Wind" on the edge of town. The Fitz - Larry struggle becomes the motivation for the series, something like the apology list for the title character in MY NAME IS EARL. In the first year we are introduced to Fitz's equally dysfunctional family, which include a profane patriarch, a sniveling divorcee of a sister and a gleefully malicious mommy played by Joanna Cassidy, the "snake lady" in the movie BLADE RUNNER, who was so delightful in a one-off in this first year that she became a regular in later seasons. In this tortured family dynamic, the show's writers and producers more than achieved their goal of creating some sympathy for the preening Fitz, the boy who can't and certainly never wants, to say no.

If you are repelled by vulgar language, kindly stay away from CALL ME FITZ. Insults and profanity are to this series what a cleverly turned phrase was to Restoration comedy. Most of the name-calling I can't repeat here; a couple of the less dirty ones in the series are "buttmunch" aimed at anyone who gets in the way, usually Larry, and "tard card" to indicate a handicap parking permit. The satire in CALL ME FITZ is free-ranging and generally vicious: like SOUTH PARK it often swings at vacuous liberals but the targets also include snobs, media mavens, the unctuous and avaricious Pakistanis who own the competing used-car dealership across the road, and (especially in this first year) the tortured family dynamic.

If you like this kind of thing, as I do, you are apt to find CALL ME FITZ very funny. Each DVD set contains a year's worth of episodes, generally 13, and some supplemental material at the end. The price is right, enabling CALL ME FITZ to be enjoyed not only in Canada and on the USA's DirecTV, but by anyone who wants to take a chance on the series and has a DVD player.

FASCINATING FACTOID: Most of CALL ME FITZ, exteriors and interiors both, is filmed along the commercial strip of little (5,100 pop.) New Minas, Nova Scotia.

Awesome show! Great writing! Great acting! Very unsuitable for young children and religious families! This show is going to be an Arrested Development in five years. People will discover it and wonder why the hell it never caught on. There will be enough interest to put together another season only available on Netflix. Similar genre to Wilfred. Some of this stuff is just a little bit beyond the reach of your everyday TV watcher.

I've watched this show since it's debut on the DirecTv channel a year ago. I find it entertaining and unusual. I'm sure it's not for everyone but I enjoy it.

After watching this morally depraved first season, I quickly bought the other two. I can't wait for season four on DVD(since I don't know what channel it comes on). Jason priestly finally found a show that his overacting isn't apparent.
