ACTION (THE COMPLETE SERIES) --  Chris Thompson, who had written for The Larry Sanders Show, created this other sly send-up of show business, this time a short-lived (13 episodes) 1999-2000 Fox series about a sarcastic Hollywood studio executive named Peter Dragon. Jay Mohr stars, and plays Dragon with a delicious mix of aggression and exasperation. Illeana Douglas plays his assistant, and guest stars include Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves, Salma Hayek and Buddy Hackett. Action has no laugh track, and plays more like a series of sharp satirical mini-movies. All 13 episodes are available from Amazon for just $9.98. – David Bianculli
