We here at theTVaddict.com thoroughly enjoyed Wednesday’s premiere of ABC’s new comedy THE KNIGHTS OF PROSPERITY. Not only did the show have that smart/funny vibe of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, but its predominant colour [orange] perfectly matches theTVaddict.com’s colour palette!
In the premiere episode, Eugene Gurkin’s (Donal Logue) dreams always have exceeded his means. In fact his dead end job on the late, late janitorial shift won’t even fund a bottle of premium booze. In a serendipitous moment, he catches an episode of an entertainment news show and his passion is ignited. Soon he excitedly recruits a group of “average joes” into his “gang” — “The Knights of Prosperity” — to plan the celebrity heist. The first order of business is to get a copy of the key to Jagger’s apartment. And, as usual for this group of “Ocean’s idiots,” nothing comes easily.
If you missed the series premiere, ABC is re-airing it tonight (Friday January 5) at 9PM. You can also catch it for free online by clicking here.

I’ll get the ball rolling: This TV Addict would like to rob Veronica Mars — I’ll go to any lengths to get the attention of Neptune’s coolest detective. That or Paris Hilton, let’s face it — that girl has far too much time and money on her hands.
