Thanks for the review Michael.  I live a sheltered life and have to admit I have never seen (or heard of) this show, but It sounds pretty funny.  Does it have re-watching potential?

The show easily holds up to multiple viewings. I've seen seasons 1 and 2 numerous times, and there are always exchanges or bits of business that I either missed or have forgotten. I bought the season 3 DVDs when they came out, but never got around to watching them, because in my memory it wasn't as funny as the first two -- and I was so wrong! Yes, it's dark, but there's some truly wild stuff in there.


As for being "sheltered", you're not. The U.S. broadcasts were on the Sundance Channel, and the show was initially a cult item. Its audience has gradually expanded, because there aren't many shows that are smart, adult and funny.

Now you are REALLY making me look bad as I'm not familiar with that show either.  Would it be like The Office or Party Down except with a theater company instead of paper or catering?

well it's more like Six Feet Under set in a Shakespeare company.


You should at least see the first season of Trailer Park Boys - it aired on the same Canadian channel.

Review updated to make note of a fix to one of the issues reported under "Mastering" and a "missing" extra that's been found.
