Profit was ill-timed. Released today it would surely be a huge hit - people are more used to subversion, corporate machiavellian tactics and even the term 'white collar psychopath' is more widely accepted. Back in the nineties people were shocked and turned off - leading to the cancellation of this great show. Adrian Pasdars Jim Profit is very, very much like Patrick Bateman (American Psycho). Even more so than Christian Bales rendition. What really makes this show involving and interesting is the excellent use of dynamics - the characters weaknesses, strengths, intentions, motives, fears and histories are all used and played with like toys against one another. To me this is what makes for great viewing - not endless shoot-outs and explosions. The end of every episode is so interesting - Profit sums up his deceitful games and then climbs into a cardbox box in the middle of his luxury apartment to sleep.
