Very Good
27 August 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a very good show!

As a Hamilton born and bred girl I grew up watching the classic shows on CHCH like Smith and Smith Comedy Mill and then Red Green and I still remember all those great campy Hilarious House of Frightenstein episodes that I am lucky to have found DVDs of in a pawn shop this summer.

This Movie Sucks is in the same tradition of great Canadian comedy shows that are great even though they have a small budget and are not in a very big city. In fact they are throwing the small budget right back in our face and reference it all the time with Ed saying how they don't have money to do things.

I love this show especially compared to how bigger budget Canadian shows try too hard to be American style with more money and just fail miserably (I can't begin to describe how much I don't like a lot of Canadian TV) so this show is a breath of fresh air.

I won't give it full marks cuz it is walking in the footsteps of one of my other fave low budget shows Mystery Science Theater but it is unique in its own way. I see others say this show got better since it started, not sure how many episodes I missed but I have seen four weeks straight and the quality seemed consistently good to me, maybe I missed some bad ones to start.
