After hosting three awkward seasons of Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule, television’s most bizarre investigative reporter, Steve Brule, recently released an unaired sitcom pilot entitled Bagboy. Originally shot (and shelved) before the dubious doctor created his own infamous spin-off from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, the pilot features Brule in his acting debut (and finale) as a bagger at the subpar supermarket Myer’s Super Foods. John C. Reilly, Tim Heidecker, and Eric Wareheim initially served as the show’s executive producers and were pivotal to its resurrection as a special on Adult Swim. When asked about his desire to create a second episode, Brule replies, “I hope and pray that their [sic] will. Do you hope and pray? You should. Gord is listening. Right now. Told you...” And with regard to another season of Check It Out!, Brule claims that he and his trusty cameraman Denny are currently “trying to get enough tapes of everything that is important for the viewers,” including “candy,” “time,” and “egg rolls.” But for now, the oft-blundering anchorman gives us the reasoning behind his sartorial signatures and advice on how to identify a hunk as opposed to a dingus.
