SUMMARY: When the last worshipper of the Greek gods
dies, Mr. Black of the Global Order of Deities informs a
resistant pantheon that in order to get their believers back -
and therefore their waning powers - they're going to have to
change their ways, cutting down on the unwieldy number of gods
and getting in touch with modern humans - and taking human jobs.
The gods are even less impressed when they meet their
caseworker, nebbishy Mr. Corgi, who is on his first case -
nobody else wanted to touch a pantheism. After a brief
visit from Zeus, who the others are hiding the situation from in
fear of his reaction, Mr. Corgi informs them that to rebuild
their religion, they'll be going to a place full of people who
have lost their way... Los Angeles, California.
SUMMARY: The gods are none too pleased with their
new Los Angeles digs, a small house called "Chez Olympus."
They're also not thrilled that they have to take human jobs in
order to reconnect with and assimilate into modern society. And
they're furious when they find that Athena signed a contract
without reading it... a contract that obligates them to
participate in a reality show arranged by Mr. Black.
Meanwhile, Aphrodite starts her new job as a phone sex operator,
while Dionysus must deal with working in a liquor store but
being forbidden to drink by his boss, Mrs. Barushnigash.
However, things look up for "Dion" when Marty, a college kid,
invites him to a frat party. Back at the house, the gods
are fighting with each other, and Mr. Corgi, after finding that
Mr. Black doesn't seem to care how badly it's going, swears that
he's going to save their religion anyway.
SUMMARY: As the reality show gets underway, the
gods begin to bicker. Meanwhile, Dionysus gets into
drunken trouble with the goats at a petting zoo, while Artemis
sets out on her ill-suited job attempting to sell "Mary Kay
Circle R Products" and ends up making new friends who want to
give her a makeover. And an increasingly dispirited
Apollo, having rejected taking a human job, tries to hit up
Jesus and Buddha for work. Although he's turned down, the
proud Sun God's fortunes change when meets a couple of girls on
the beach who describe themselves as sun worshippers.
