Sorry, I've got to disagree, this is far and away the best Canadian comedy on network TV today - way better than Dan for Mayor or Hiccups *shudder*! It's fresh and amusingly funny in its portrayal of small-town Canada - which is not a lame excuse for anything, but rather a genuine pulse on the heartland. I found it neither elitist nor dumbed down, but relatably funny! By touching on social trends like vegetarianism, they're using comedy and comedic ignorance to open up public discourse and understanding - not mockery. Also, the show invites characters of different races into the fray without defining those characters by their race which is so refreshing! Every character is a character, and entertaining ones too, not playing up racial difference for cheap laughs! The cast does a solid job overall and the lead, Brendan Gall, has great comic timing. He's got a definite Seth Rogen vibe going' on. And I'm totally digging Paul Gross' narration. It improves the show much in the same way Ron Howard's did for Arrested Development. The self-conscious, self-referential asides to the audience play for some of the show's best laughs! Oh, and for the record, Paul Gross hasn't lost a step haha Love that guy!
