The acting isn't bad and they have had some good guest stars on this show with a lead who is perfectly fine in the role, but I don't like this show.
I think my main problem is with the writing and/or maybe just the type of show and humour it is. I don't understand what they're doing most of the time.
It's very predictable and by that I don't just mean the story, I also mean all of the jokes they do. The story and the jokes are so predictable it actually annoys me. What's the point of watching something so poorly written and predictable that you know everything that's coming before it even happens?
And what is the CBC's fascination with producing shows with eastern Canadians? Why no prime time comedies from the Prairies or BC? Mercer, 22 and a bunch of other shows over the years haven't been enough?
This comedy is pretty lame.
