Although Better Off Ted only ran for a short two seasons, the series is a repeated slot-holder on many gone-too-soon lists. Created by Victor Fresco (Andy Richter Controls the Universe) the show follows Ted Crisp, a kindhearted single dad trying to stay moral and set a good example while working as head of Research and Development for a malicious company. The corporation in question, Veridian Dynamics, is vapid and soulless, stopping at nothing to achieve its goals no matter how evil. Veridian has swayed presidential elections (#awkward), created killer robots and even weaponized pumpkins! There are only three governments in the world more powerful (was this how Skynet began!?) The company even experiments on its own employees—that’s a lot for Ted to contend with!
The show is filled with quirky characters like Ted’s supervisor Veronica Palmer (Portia de Rossi), co-worker and love interest Linda Zwordling (Andrea Anders), and laboratory scientists Phillip Myman (Jonathan Slavin) and Lem Hewitt (Malcolm Barrett). Known for its witty satire and 30 Rock-esque tone, Ted carries us with him as he narrates the plot and periodically breaks the fourth wall to talk directly with the audience. Its left of center approach won it the acclaim of critics, but its low ratings prevented it from continuing past its second season.
If you’re looking for a sharp comedy that could’ve potentially become Liz Lemon’s successor, here’s how to watch Better Off Ted streaming online.
