Storyline

Robson Arms is an older Tudor styled two-story walk up apartment building located in the west end of Vancouver. The building is inhabited by a variety of tenants, who interact with each other, and who interact with the mainstays of the building, namely the womanizing superintendent Yuri Kukov, and the Tans, the owner/managers of Pendrell Market, the corner grocery store attached to the building. On a week to week basis, The Troubadours comment on the state of the building's tenants through song over the opening credits. Written by Huggo

yes, it was a good show
8 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't know this for a fact, but I think it was always intended as a limited series. But I could be wrong.

Overall, it was a show about the tenants in the building (Robson Arms) and the lives they lived. Each episode had good quality actors and comedians. All the tenants got an episode or two and a chance to shine. The acting was good and each episode had a few very funny moments. I was hoping for more of the Megan Follows and Mark McKinney storyline to show up though.

I hope CTV saw what they had and tries this format again. I'd watch it again.
