He is Dilbert. If you don't love him, at least you know him. He's the bespectacled potato-shaped Everyman, the alter ego of office workers frustrated by annoying coworkers and idiot bosses. The deliciously surreal tone of Scott Adams' comic strip is preserved (even amplified in places) in the TV adaptation.
In the strange adventures of Dilbert (Daniel Stern) and friends... er, coworkers, they travel to the muddy, backward country of Elbonia, search for Dilbert's long-lost dad in the mall, create anthrax throat drops ("My throat is moist... and the raspiness is gone... GACK!"), try to name a product that doesn't exist, deal with a black hole, and battle tiny people who are stealing the office supplies. Their souls are sucked out by their company, and a cat rules over Human Resources. And through it all, the megalomaniac Dogbert (Chris Elliot) somehow manages to arrange things so that the disasters aren't too outstanding.
Several supporting characters have enlarged roles. There's the violent, big-haired Alice (Kathy Griffin); lazy Wally; naive, dumb Asok, the idiot pointy-haired boss (Larry Miller), and Loud Howard (who can shatter glass with his booming voice). Other favorites like Catbert (played by "Seinfeld's" Jason Alexander) crop up from time to time, as well as other cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Jeri Ryan, and others.
The animation is amusing and quite faithful to Adams' original animation (although Dilbert has a mouth here). And the humor is deliciously, delightfully twisted -- without losing the corporate edge, the scriptwriters kept in the sort of bizarre occurrances that make this so funny. Several scenarios are, however, included from the strip -- and sometimes even expanded (such as the Dadbert-in-the-mall episode).
Everyone's favorite bespectacled, pointy-tied, potato-shaped engineer is still funny on the small screen. "Dilbert: The Complete Series" is a must-have for cubicle serfs and technogeeks.
