Storyline

Red Green is a bearded Canadian carpenter who's really handy with his hands, and can find great uses for duct tape. He hosts "The Red Green Show", where he and his nerdy nephew, Harold, teach the viewers how to make excellent and useful crafts, as well as give marriage advice, from their home at Possum Lodge. Also, he plays games with Dalton Humphries where he must try to get him to guess a word by giving examples of it or saying a sentence it would be used in. Red also appears in a black-and-white series with the bungling Bill Smith were they show young viewers things like how to hunt and the existence of gravity. Other characters who frequently appear are the deprived Ranger Gord, who lives on top of a 100-foot tower on top of a 200-foot hill, has been guarding the watch tower for 16 years without a vacation and has no friends; the golf-obsessed loser Bob Stuyvestant who knows nothing about women; Buzz Sherwood, a daredevil pilot; and Winston Rothschild III, a loyal!

Quotes

Red Green: Pretty soon, you're going to find yourself going on and on about every topic under the sun, and you're going to wonder, "Why am I suddenly the Encyclopedia Britannica in shorts and a T-shirt? And why this urge to tell anyone with ears?" Well, you're a middle-aged man now. And middle-aged men know everything. Oh, yeah. Middle-aged men know the best route on any highway from one place to another place. We know how to fix stuff. We know how to cut the lawn properly. We know everything. But you got...

The Red Green Show is pure comedy genius!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
31 October 2005 | by (Michigan, United States) – See all my reviews

I have been watching for a few years now, I accidentally tuned into the show while in a cabin with my wife. She was not thrilled... My wife only finds small bits of humor in this show. (No accounting for taste =) ). I have heard her crack up a few times watching it though...

I think it is a great show and I enjoy cracking up to it each time I watch it. I enjoy handyman corner and the vintage film look of the narrative portions where Red tells a story to what is going on in the silent video. How do they come up with the inventions they show off on the show? I was fortunate enough to visit Toronto to see a live taping of the show this year. I was sad to learn the show is ending after fifteen seasons! It was a great treat to see how a television show is made. I would be anxious to get in line to buy a box set or seasons of this show on DVD. I would buy them all!!! Silly humor like this is priceless! Thanks Steve and crew for 15 great seasons!!!!!
