This series was advertised in Canada for several months before it actually premiered. It was hardly worth the wait. The show is a loosely structured comedy set during the 1800s or something and follows a Mel Brooks-like format. It's kind of like Mel Brooks' 70s show "When Things Were Rotten". Apparently, no one told the producers that this style of goofball/spoof comedy isn't really popular anymore. All of the characters in "Blackfly" dress American Revolution-style and most of the gags (many of which involve outhouses) fall flat. Ron James who stars and co-wrote many of the episodes, can be funny but this is not one of his better projects and "Blackfly" is not the kind of TV series that will make Canada look good.
