Down the Drain
1 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show used to be good and had a bit of a resurgence in the early 2000s but it has steadily been declining for almost 10 years, it is time to mercy kill this show by pulling the plug. Not funny or relevant any more the cast is not as good as they used to be, the new cast members are not up to snuff, the writing is totally hack now. I don't know why CBC keeps dragging out the same awful 'comedy' year after year after year long after it is time to put this show out of it's misery and bury it in the nearest ditch. The badness of recent years has completely tarnished what this show used to be. It's a huge mistake they didn't let this show die gracefully instead of putting it on TV year after year without obviously caring about any quality.
