A single-camera comedy about coming home again - when home is a comic book store in a suburban strip mall. Warring brothers Terry and Peter are forced to take over the reins of their father's failing comic book store after his untimely death. While Peter remained at home working alongside his father and emulating all of his nerdy ways, Terry escaped his youth as the high school punching bag and went to Harvard business school, never looking back. Now Terry must confront the family and friends he abandoned and the geek culture he has fought so hard to forget. The brothers try to put the past behind them, keep dad's dream alive and not kill each other in the process. Written by
I really wish this show hadn't been canceled. I guessed it was Canadian before I even looked it up. The humor is priceless, and typically Canadian, with lots of dry wit and slapstick elements: a good meld of Corner Gas (humor type) and Big Bang Theory (geeky subject matter). I actually like it more than Corner Gas, though my husband might disagree with me. But we both agree on this: too bad it wasn't given more of a chance.
The characters are lovable and zany (and yes, not very believable, but very fun). We are really enjoying the few episodes, and are disappointed that we'll have to look elsewhere when they're done. Overall, a great laugh.
