Brilliant Film Noir Naive Parody
14 February 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

You'll hate it or love it. Entirely self effacing main character with no scruples beyond getting drunk and getting laid. Lawrence's dialogue is brilliantly obscene and the main focus of a show with the most threadbare of plots. Whenever you start to empathize with Butchy, Lawrence takes it away by plumbing even greater depths of debasement and depravity. The other characters are cartoonish except perhaps Blanche, but the show works. Don't expect great season enders, as the entire series is a merely vehicle for Lawrence's brilliant humour. Show ran for three seasons with at least a dozen episodes each. Pretty good for Canadian fare, you'll walk away or laugh and pour yourself a drink.
