Start of a good thing

This Canadian situation comedy is set in a 1920s Montreal speak-easy. Susan Roman plays the owner of the establishment who, faced with police and government corruption and rival gangsters, struggles to keep her night club open.

While it did not last for very long, the series did have the virtue of an exotic time and setting - Montreal in the 1920s.

It was fresh, from a Canadian stand-point, in that there were very few shows being made in the American sitcom genre, and even fewer that had any good jokes to speak of. For home grown fare we Canadians had to deal with "Excuse My French" or "King of Kensington". Blah.

So while a rating of 5 out of ten may not seem very high, it tells the story. The writing on this was not very good and a lot of the acting was ape-ish, I was still glad to see some Canadian content somewhere on the air.

Later, Canadian producers would find a more understated tone and a voice that was much more in keeping with our national character with "Made In Canada", "Due South", or "The Newsroom". These examples represent best the wry humour that characterizes the Great White North.
