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!

Goofs

Avid golfer Bob Stuyvesant claims to finally hit under par using a partial set of left-handed clubs purchased from Murray Woolworth. This is completely forgotten in Season 3 and Bob is back to never coming close to hitting par, much less under par. See more »

A sort of local specialty
10 January 2005 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I've seen many mixed responses to this show. Frankly, I think it's awesome, but that's just me. The thing is that you need to realize that this is a scripted show: it follows a set pattern, which may change with the season (e.g. some seasons don't have Ranger Gord's little cartoons), but it's still a stage production and therefore is limited somewhat by the locations it shows (we never really go outside the lodge or into Possum Lake town).

Also, for some parts of this show, you need to turn your brain off. Just do it; it's healthy in moderation. So what if most of the Handyman Corner stuff is physically impossible? Most of it works IN THEORY, and considering Possum Lodge, that's good enough.

There are parts of this show that rock and parts that are mediocre. Ranger Gord is always funny, and the Experts Portion of the Show (where men examine those three little words men find so hard to say: "I Don't Know!") is also worth a peek. My sister loves Adventures with Bill/Walter/Etc.; I think they're okay but not worthy of such high worship. That's one problem with conglomerations: you get a lot of variety, not always a good thing.

In summary, should you ever be vacationing Up North, check this out. If it's not your kettle of fish, it'll only be 22 minutes of your time wasted. You probably waste more waking up.

7/10. I would rate higher, but it IS a TV show and it may change - possibly for the worse.
