Another great show canceled!
26 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

Blackfly was a great, under-rated Canadian comedy. It was as funny as anything on TV at the time, and if it had been an American show, we'd still be watching it. It had that dark anything goes underdog's point of view, sort of like a period version of Trailer Park Boys, another hilarious Canadian TV series. The big difference? Blackfly was set in the 1700s, and maybe TV viewers just can't wrap their heads around the concept of a historical comedy. But the jokes and situations in Blackfly were totally fresh and contemporary. The creator of the show, Ron James is a terrific standup comedian, and he did a good job of translating his stand-up persona into a sitcom context. Shauna Black, as Lady Hammond, a reluctant pioneer with a very active libido, was hilarious; James Kees was sharp and funny as the fort manager; Sherie Maracle (Misty Moon) and Lorne Cardinal (Chief Smack Your Face In) did an amazing job playing 1700s' Natives as bewildered suburbanites; Richard Donat, the fort commander, was as loony as anything you could imagine on TV; Marcel Jeanin, as a voyageur, stole every scene he was in; and Colin Mochrie (Colin Mochrie!) was totally endearing and hilarious as a hapless British officer. They should play re-runs of this show, endlessly, until viewers finally get it!
