Talented cast,interesting premise,doomed from the outset.

If Hiccups was handled differently it could have been a success. The cast are all superb, and the writing whilst not rib crackling funny is whimsical and heartwarming enough to make it more than watchable. However, it suffers from the weight of expectation and its gestation time was far too short.

After the mega success of Corner Gas, and much to the disappointment of its millions of adoring fans to its much to early demise, Brent Butt et el wrote produced and aired the first season of Hiccups less than a year from the CG series finale.

Not enough time had past to allow the general public to move on from it's beloved sitcom. All eyes were on Brent Butt to repeat the success of CG and a lot of it's former fans were still hurt from it's passing to give the new show a chance.

The other problem is it's accessibility. One of the main reasons of Corner Gas' success was that it was relatable. For the majority of it's audience they identified and loved small town Canada with its collection of adorable eccentric locals. Dog River was a place where most people grew up in or wanted to live in. Hiccups is a world of millionaire authors,publishers and slick slimy agents - High flying City Dwellers. The first episode of the long delayed second season takes place partly in LA. How many average Canadians can identify with that?

The show could still be a moderate success, however it needs to ground itself firmer in reality, tone down the central character of Millie who at the moment is still far too unstable to make a connection with the audience and for CTV to show it some love and to not pre-empt it on a whim, and recommission the show early to allow Brent Butt & the writers the time to create stronger more 3 dimensional characters.

Though in reality what the people are truly waiting for is not a third season of Hiccups or more projects from former Corner Gas alumni but a Corner Gas movie, or even better a full seventh season of Canada's greatest sitcom of all time.
