Storyline

Odd Job Jack is an animated comedy about one guy's misadventures in temporary employment and his quest to get a full-time life. In the year 2003, in an unnamed Canadian megacity, JACK RYDER (voiced by Don McKellar) searches for a way out of limbo. Twenty-five years old and fresh out of university - sporting a degree in sociology and shouldering a hefty student debt - Jack is decidedly unsure what he wants to do with the rest of his life. In fiscal desperation, Jack signs on at a temp agency - Odd Jobs Unlimited - where he finds himself placed in a variety of usual and unusual postion by Betty Styles, his ever-optimistic (and in Jack's opinion, totally attractive) career counsellor. In every episode, Jack tries out a new job, introducing him to an array of interesting characters, unique experiences, and different perspectives on the working world.

Fun!

I really enjoyed this animated show. Don McKellar is very good at comedy, the animation was on the low end but unique and fun, and it was a fun "adult oriented" comedy series.
