A gentle, poignant, and funny look
17 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show, set in the Manitoba town of Gimli, has undefinable but authentic Canadian prairie air. It's the story of a boy sent to live with his uncle, his mother's twin, and his aunt, after the death of his mother.

The main characters, Eric, Johnny, AJ, and Zoe, maintain the high standards of outstanding Canadian acting, and the supporting cast is, as always, both amusing and dead-on.

My kids love to watch our tapes of this - they identify strongly with Eric. I like it myself because it's got that slight spin of Canadian insanity that makes it so different from mainstream US "pop" TV. Not every episode has a moral lesson; not every moral lesson is pounded into the ground; and sometimes, as in real life, there's no resolution to the problem.

"A Day In The Life" is probably my favourite episode. If you get a chance to watch this show, make time to do so.
