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

I Like It, Please Don't Cancel Another Brilliant Series
19 March 2006 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

I'd like to see this show get a lot more respect from the CTV network. It would change my opinion on how they manage to skew shows into oblivion. It took a long time for it to finally get aired. Don't kid yourselves by thinking we the public don't pay-no-never-mind on how to read them-there newspapers. (also see below links)

The episodes were scattered all over to begin with. Who knew when to watch or find it? Please find a regular night for Robson Arms, give it a prime time slot, and keep it there. It's worth it, we like it, please don't compromise anything anymore with the show.

The episodes are great to watch. There are enough identifiably Canadian characters to find a niche with more viewers.The actors are top notch, the scripts are unique, and the opening songs with an acoustic guitar and voice, etc are quirky attention grabbers.
