PLEASE, somebody release the whole series on DVD
6 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best sitcoms I have ever seen, which I stumbled across on PBS as "The Industry". Fabulous, wicked dark humor. Great one-sided characters you love to hate set in the Canadian television industry. In one episode one of the actors goes to Mexico for cheap hair transplants and dies--there's no sadness or warmth amongst the remaining characters, only a desperate scramble to cover it up and figure out a way to write 'im out of the series. Sadly, my PBS affiliate no longer shows it, preferring to air the same old 30+ year old britcoms and RedGreen. I eventually found one disc of 5 or 6 episodes out there, but there are something like five seasons that languish in a vault somewhere. SET THEM FREE!!!!
