Storyline

Comedy taking place in Toronto circa 1964 about a CBC variety show called "It's Ruby and Kip" which stars married/divorced/re-married TV couple Kip Delaney, and Ruby Kendall (played by real-life husband and wife Colin Mochrie and Debra McGrath). The show was once the number one rated show in Canada, but has slipped hard in the ratings as of recent, and their producer wants the show to tank the whole way. Ruby is the focal point of the show, while Kip is merely the piano player (making them essentially a 1960s Canadian 'Captain and Tenille'). Add to it their squabbling when off the camera (while trying to maintain a positive image ON camera), and the problems others involved with the show have, and you have for one good time.

I'm getting along with Getting Along Famously
22 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

This show is so original. I am so pleased with CBC for taking on such a witty, risky, clever show. It is a show within a show, and because it is set in 1964, I felt they handled the era well. I love Ruby! I know Colin M. is a big star, but really, I think Debra McGrath nailed it as the insecure diva. And what is the deal with the human bear running through each scene? Very clever, and a bit quirky, as us Canadians do best. I wonder if this show will have some strange cult following, I could see some folks really loving Ruby (I'm telling you, she steals the show). There is one scene where she is Carmen Miranda, with a big fruit bowl on her head...lovely.

I hope CBC will pick it up again next year, we need more risk takers on the airwaves...
