Hotz's Triumph: Brilliant Canadian Television
2 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's not really a secret that today's Canadian television content is horrendous. Most television in general is horrible but the Canadian broadcasters have a real knack for playing the safe hand when it comes to originality. Because of this, we're given shows that don't try anything new but only try to mimic the larger budget American productions. So to see something as unique and brilliant as Kenny Hotz's Triumph of the Will slip through the cracks and make it on to television really gives one hope that someday the Canadian film and television industry will embrace the homegrown talent and stop trying to be American.

Taking a journalistic approach to his antics, Kenny Hotz throws himself against human morality and tackles some of life's problems with a unique perspective and artistic production values. Whether it be making it as an immigrant by starting off in the Nevada desert stark naked without a single penny to his name or finding true love for his widowed Mother, Kenny will entertain like none other.

The sad part to this though will be the struggle for the show to see a life past the 6 episode, first season. Already fighting an uphill battle, the show has been given a Friday time slot and is being broadcast on Action Showcase oppose to the mother channel, Showcase. But that doesn't mean it's over. If you haven't seen it already, go watch it immediately (you can find the first 4 episodes on the Action Showcase website). For those of you unsure about it, it's not Kenny vs Spenny but you would be wrong to dismiss it for that reason. People grow with time, most often moving onto greater things and in this case it's no different. Kenny Hotz's Triumph of the Will is one of many steps towards greater Canadian content and in the end, it all boils down to what people as a whole watch.
