Jon Glaser Loves Gear is a comedy television show that premiered on truTV in 2016. The show was created by Jon Glaser, who also starred in the series. The show revolves around Jon's love for various types of gear and his experiences while trying to use them in different situations.

The show follows a mockumentary-style format where Jon plays himself and interacts with various people in different settings. Each episode explores a different type of gear, ranging from camping equipment, snowboards, high-end audio equipment to niche items such as water filtration systems, tools, and various gadgets. The show's humor comes from the absurdity of Jon's obsession with gear and his over-the-top reactions to different items.

The show's pilot episode focuses on camping gear, with Jon taking a trip to the woods with his friends to test out his new gear. The group encounters problems throughout the trip, such as a raccoon stealing their snacks and a tent that refuses to stay upright. The episode's humor comes from Jon's attempts to use his camping gear in situations where it's not necessary or helpful, such as attempting to start a fire with a high-end lighter despite already having a campfire burning.

In later episodes, Jon explores snowboarding gear and high-end audio equipment. In the snowboarding episode, Jon purchases an expensive snowboard to impress his friends, but struggles to use it on the slopes. He also becomes increasingly obsessed with having the perfect snowboarding outfit, leading to further comedic moments. The audio equipment episode sees Jon trying to set up a home theater system with the help of a professional sound engineer. However, Jon's lack of technical expertise leads to numerous mishaps, including accidentally knocking over a speaker and misplacing cables.

Throughout the series, Jon's obsession with gear often leads him to spend exorbitant amounts of money on equipment he doesn't need, causing conflict with his wife and financial difficulties. He also struggles to justify his love for certain types of gear to his friends and family, who often tease him for his obsessions. The show's humor comes from the contrast between Jon's intense love for gear and the mundane situations in which he tries to use it.

Jon Glaser Loves Gear received positive reviews from critics, who praised the show's humor and Glaser's comedic performance. The National Post called the show "hilarious and charming" and praised Glaser's ability to make even the most mundane situations funny. The AV Club gave the show an A- rating and described it as "a celebration of all things niche and a hilarious take on obsessive consumerism."

Overall, Jon Glaser Loves Gear is a fun and lighthearted show that provides a unique take on the comedy genre. If you're a fan of mockumentary-style shows and offbeat humor, then Jon Glaser Loves Gear is definitely worth checking out.

Jon Glaser Loves Gear is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (20 episodes). The series first aired on October 26, 2016.
