The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be (Reality Show)
4 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

By far the most entertaining reality show ever produced.

Kenny and Spenny, two lifelong "best friends", battled in weekly competitions (spanning 87 episodes) with the loser having to do an act of humiliation of the winner's choosing. This aired on the Showcase network in Canada for six seasons but was never able to find a home in the U.S. as the Gameshow Network and Comedy Central each bumped it after one season.

Kenny cheats, lies and simply outwits Spenny to emerge victorious in an outstanding 70% of these competitions, resulting in Spenny's televised humiliations becoming a near weekly event. A MUST SEE for anyone with a sense of humor.

My personal favorites include "First One To Talk Loses", "Who Can Sell More Bibles?", "Who Is Funnier?", "Who does She Like Better?" and "Who Can Commit More Crime?", However the first season is a good starting point for any newcomers to the show as you can watch Kenny slowly break Spennys spirit throughout the duration of the series.
