Storyline

In the small town of Shuckton, Ontario, which has just placed a bid to host the 2028 Summer Olympics, its mayor, Larry Bowman, is found murdered. As the authorities investigate, other townsfolk with a personal history to the deceased mayor conduct their own unofficial investigations to see if they can discover who committed the murder. Life in Shuckton continues under the leadership of the new mayor who has her own agenda, and under the watchful eye of the local news team, who not only have more news to cover than usual but who are dealing with their own internal issues. But as life continues, so does Death, he who has some more names on his list and some old scores to settle. Written by Huggo

Must See For Any KITH Fan
10 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, I finally managed to get my hands on this mini-series (thanks, Netflix!) and I couldn't be more pleased.

I had my concerns that this would be some crappy half-hearted plot with a bunch of cameos from Kids in the Hall characters no one had seen for 15 years. Sure, a couple characters make cameos and I did roll my eyes at them, but the show still had a very fresh feel to it.

There's no point in me trying to dissect the series here, to be honest. If you're a KITH fan and you just found out this thing even existed (especially if you're in the States like me and it took you 4 years to stumble across it) then you need to watch this. The guys (especially McKinney) are in their old form. While there aren't a lot of laugh-out- loud moments, I sat through 4 episodes in a viewing without getting bored or feeling like the show was wearing thin.

If you've never seen KITH, you should probably watch the original show first or this might put you off. Personally, I felt the guys aged well. It didn't feel like a bunch of tired old has-beens trying to make a come back. It felt like a group of friends and talented comedians doing their best to keep putting their work out there.

Kudos to the guys and here's hoping they keep making more!
