Premise: Corporate genius and raging sociopath Jim Profit (Adrian Pasdar) wiles away the hours trying to gain control of Gracen & Gracen, and if he can destroy the lives of his rivals while doing it, all the better!
Why It's Cult: While the series' pitch-black tone and unapologetic antihero might've caught on with audiences today, back in 1996, it was good for only eight episodes. Still, the weekly image of Profit laying his head to rest inside a G&G cardboard box a leftover habit from his disturbing childhood remains emblazoned in our heads more than a decade later. Good, if grim, stuff! Michael Slezak
