Love this show. I can't understand why there isn't more hype around it.
This show has what it takes to be a huge hit. The Blundells are a
mildly dysfunctional family with a completely hilarious deadpan
approach to having been abducted by aliens and having their mother
carrying an alien baby. The father suspects that the aliens are to
blame for his daughter's lesbianism, and the son has impregnated his
teacher with an alien baby of her own.
If you like Trailer Park Boys or Curb Your Enthusiasm, you'll love this show.
Please please, don't let this show fade away!
This show is one well-kept secret that shouldn't be - it's a gem.
As a family counselor, I have had fewer pleasures surfing cable than to happen upon this hilarious west coast comedy about... you guessed it,...family dysfunction. Director Trent Carlson (Delicate Art of Parking), Mark Sawers (Kid's in the Hall) and co-writer Robert Chomiak pack one parenting conundrum after another into each episode with tear-inducing effect. Was there an alien abduction in this quiet little suburban house? Is this the cause of mysterious surges in the sexual urges of daughter, son, dad, and even grandpa? Mom seems immune, but not disinterested. The pace is calculated and the delivery is well timed. With Jonathon Whittaker playing her innocently adolescent husband, Roger, to dead-pan perfection, Sarah-Jane Redmond is a discrete and sober modern wife, responsible yet anxious, the only real adult present. My hat goes off to cast and crew. A thoroughly enjoyable treat.
A few people I was talking to have actually appeared as a guest on this show and they seem to have had a lot of fun on it. Also notice this is one of the very few TV shows that are actually filmed on Vancouver Island.. I think. I'd say it's worth the time to watch this show.
