Quotes

Richard Strong: [first line of the series] All my life I wanted to make movies. A good movie can change lives. A great movie can change the world. But television, it's different. It's not about making a difference. Television's about making one thing only. Money. I work in television; I can get behind anything.

Doesn't get much better...
19 February 2004 | by (Windsor, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This show deserves any and all the recognition that it gets as television doesn't get much better than this show.

Yes, Made In Canada is a biting satire, nicely set up by its placement: Canadian television production. But at the same time, it is so undeniably quirky that I'm always left in stitches. Constant running gags like that of "Network Brian" always wearing white running shoes with his suits, one cast member at the end of almost every episode saying either "I think that went well" or "This is not good", the references to 'Prom Night At Horny High' and the fun looks that Rick Mercer (Richard Strong) will occasionally give the camera.

Typically Canadian and truly awe inspiring, Made In Canada is show I watch now in reruns whenever possible, and without fail. There isn't an episode not worthy of a multiple viewing and thankfully both Showcase and CBC run it daily.

If you've never seen this show, you are incredibly disadvantaged as a television viewer; nothing comes close to this calibur. If I were you I would find a way to watch it.

My only hope is that eventually this show's five seasons will come out on DVD. Keeping my fingers crossed!!!

***** out of *****
