Disliked It
12 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought this show was really boring and the comedy was not up to snuff.

I remember it well because at the time I was dating a girl who really enjoyed the show or maybe she just pretended she did for the sake of her friend, a girl who was in the show who I remember and see in the cast list but will not name her because I don't want to single her out in my review.... mostly because my review is definitely not going to be a good one, and even though I met her a long time ago she seemed nice and actually seems like she is actually a talented performer who I'm sure has done much better work on much better shows since this one. I'm assuming.

The acting on this show was not very good, the stories and plot lines were terrible. The comedy they do on the show is not funny at all and again is totally predictable, what is the point of doing jokes that are so obvious that everyone watching has already thought of them anyway?

This show is better than MVP, another Canadian hockey series that was on CBC a few years later, but that's not saying much since MVP was awful.
