the concept behind this show resembles Honey, I shrunk the kids, the TV Show
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this show but the concept behind it bears an amazing resemblance to a running character on Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, the TV Show. Like most TV shows, Honey was filmed in Canada and the shows writer's spoofed this by introducing a character from the Canadian Secret Service who would show up occasionally and give the Zalinkis a spy assignment which was always filled with plenty of gag take offs of James Bond. One of the jokes was, "Yes, Canada has a secret service, too." Underfunded has the exact same concept. A spoof of James Bond using the Canadian Secret Service and yes, they actually use the same joke. Canada has a secret service, too. The humor is not quite as broad as Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, the TV Show but it definitely mines the same vein.

I liked the episode I saw. Although I wonder if the writers were fans of Honey, I Shrunk the TV Show or they just came up with the same idea. Some countries are just funny like the letter K. Canada is one of them.
