Profit is an American television series that originally aired on the Fox Broadcasting Company in 1996. The series was created by David Greenwalt and John McNamara, and stars Adrian Pasdar as the titular character.

“Profit” was all about Jim Profit, an ambitious young executive with the single creepiest backstory of any protagonist in television history, namely being forced to sleep in a box and watch TV all day before he set his father on fire, ran away, and apparently went to business school and got hired onto the major company that made the box. Which he still sleeps in.

Considered by many to be ahead of its time, the show is a precursor to more recent edgy television shows that include The Sopranos, Nip/Tuck, Dexter, Breaking Bad, and The Shield. Subversive themes stemming from the amoral actions of the central character made the show uncomfortable and unfamiliar viewing for mainstream audiences and Fox network affiliates, which ultimately led to the demise of the series.




Se isto tivesse andado para a frente, seria sem duvidas esta a melhor série de sempre, mas como os americanos são especiais, lá cancelaram esta joia. Pena só haver legendas em francês na net, nem sequer se encontra em inglês, mas para quem perceber inglês ou francês isto é daquelas séries que não se pode falhar.

Esta série serviu de inspiração para muitas outras, um exemplo recente, a primeira vez que vi o Harvey Specter pensei logo no Profit, e não consigo olhar para o Specter sem ver o Profit.

A 5 friggin' stars show.

Foi à americana, cancelaram à parva infelizmente, nem passaram todos os episódios que já tinham sido feitos. O problema da série é que o gajo que a fez era um visonário, estava pelo menos meia duzia de anos à frente, se saisse hoje metia a popularidade de Breaking Bad num cantinho, mas em 96 os telespectadores ficaram mais chocados e confusos do que outra coisa, e portanto eutanasiaram isto. Isto não tem bem um final, mas é um incontornavel na mesma.
