I's the by who loves the show...
9 February 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

You have to appreciate the very off-kilter Newfoundland sense of humour to get this show (and if you're not used to the thick-as-molasses Newfoundland accent, turn on the captions on your TV). It helps if you're from the Rock or if you've been out there (though that's certainly not required).

Personally, I think this show is a work of genius--easily one of the best Canadian comedy creations in years. I actually have to tape it so that I can pause it every few minutes--otherwise, I miss entire sections of dialogue because I'm still laughing at something from the last scene! It's not easy to steal the show from Mary Walsh, but Susan Kent (Darlene) does it effortlessly. I personally think that Shawn Majumder (a funny, funny guy if you've ever seen him do stand-up) is underused in this show, but hey--its still early days, so who knows...

Great stuff, 'bys! More, more, more!!!
