Season 2

Odd Job Jack is a Canadian animated comedy television series created by Smiley Guy Studios about the eponymous character, Jack Ryder, who graduates from university with a degree in sociology and becomes a temporary employee at an agency which specialises in filling difficult and unusual positions.

The series premiered in Canada on The Comedy Network on 5 March, 2003. There are 52 half-hour episodes in four seasons to date. 

The second season of Odd Job Jack aired in South Africa on DStv's GO channel from 16 June to 2 July, 2008, from Mondays to Fridays at 22h30.

Season 2 Synopsis

In the year 2004, in an unnamed Canadian megacity, Jack Ryder continues to search for a way out of limbo. 

Twenty-five years old and recently out of university – sporting a degree in sociology and shouldering a hefty student debt – Jack is decidedly unsure what he wants to do with the rest of his life.

In fiscal desperation, Jack signs on at a temp agency – Odd Jobs Unlimited – where he finds himself placed in a variety of usual and unusual positions by Betty Styles, his ever-optimistic (and in Jack’s opinion, totally attractive) career counsellor.

In every episode, Jack tries out a new job, introducing him to an array of interesting characters, unique experiences, and different perspectives on the working world.

For his first job of Season Two, Jack works as a Dental Assistant. Operating alongside the somewhat suicidal staff and the orally-challenged patients, Jack discovers his singular talent and becomes the resident smile specialist on the children’s ward.
