Seeing as quality Canadian TV shows are an utter rarity (comedies being no exception)one has to appreciate the extraordinary quality of this show. It rivals even the biggest budget American comedies and surpasses many in both outright hilarity and uniqueness. Each of the characters are so uniquely absurd but only marginally outside the realm of believability.
The clever allusions to real life Toronto events (the opening events of S2E1 is based on a real occurrence). The main characters complete and utter amorality becomes such an endearing trait that I've come to wish I had more friends that would mess with me on a daily basis (to keep things interesting). The dark comedy with it's sensitive subjects and pervasive ennui made this show a hilariously endearing one.
