awful
7 June 2009 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

I was bored and flipping through the channel guide one day and saw this show was set in Winnipeg, so I gave it a try. Went online to read more about it while I was watching it. Was shocked when I saw online that this was supposed to be a comedy. Shocked because I didn't detect any moments where the show was even trying for a laugh, let alone trying and failing. I know Mark McKinney has said his style is similar to Weeds, which at least has a variety of sources of its humour. Character-driven stuff only regular viewers will pick up on, snappy one-liners, and physical comedy. This show, on the other hand, plays like a bad indie movie where the writer is so satisfied with himself for having created a family of wacky characters, he doesn't feel the need to put them in situations or make them do anything that is particularly entertaining. After Malcolm In The Middle became a hit, I remember there were a bunch of rip-off shows in the U.S. that all failed for this same reason. This show is just 8 years too late. It's possible I just happened to tune into a very sub-par episode, but I get the impression this is one of those shows Canadians embrace, but would rightly dismiss if it filmed in LA and aired on Fox.
