Hey, it's better than most American Sitcoms!
23 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

I don't necassarily disagree with the negative comments posted here, but I see where they are coming from. Blackfly lacks any real purpose or that traditional 'Canadian Genius' we find in our dramatic comedies and satire, such as the Newsroom, Made In Canada, or this Hour Has 22 Minutes, but it still has that magical optimism found in such shows as The Red Green Show and Royal Canadian Air Farce. It's a show that refuses to take itself seriously (and how many of us as Canadian really do take our Country seriously?), the writing is simple and watered down, but not necassarily predictable, and its sole theme is to poke fun of our differences as the 'Three in one Nation' we are. In the second season, Dan Redican of The Frantics was the Story Editor, bringing that old Frantics feel into some of the episodes. Although the writing still has a long ways to go in order to become a Canadian Classic, the actors are already there. I love the disfunctional relationship among Blackfly, Mactavish, and Entwhistle (James Kee and Colin Mochrie are great at their roles, as well as pretty much every role they've ever had), and I love watching Richard Donat, whether it's here or on Emily of New Moon.

But don't be expecting to roll out of your seat with laughter, it's not as hilarious as Ron James' actual stand up comedy. It's more of a once in a while I'll watch it because it's on kind of thing. I wouldn't worry if I missed it, but I'd still be glad to see what I missed when I do catch it.
