An earnest young outdoors-man goes out into the barren desert for some hiking and yoga. But his serenity is brought to a grinding halt when a strange man appears from out of nowhere and tempts him with hookers.
This show was something I actually wanted to see, there were a lot of billboards and hype and I thought it would be really funny. Finally I thought Canadian TV had maybe made something that was actually good. Corner Gas was OK but not since Kids in the Hall or Twitch City or Newsroom had I seen a Canadian show that I really loved watching. So I was hoping. Then it all came crashing down. I hoped it was just a bad episode but I made myself watch several and they didn't get any better. Why is Gerry Dee supposed to be funny? He's a jerk but that doesn't automatically make him funny. For example, Michael in The Office (or Ricky Gervais in the UK version) is a jerk but he's hilarious. It comes down to writing and this show is just awfully unfunny. The actors are not great as well. I like Mark Little from Picnicface, everyone else is pretty bad. Some of the kids are OK. This show is not worth seeing. I'm so sick and tired of awful unfunny Canadian shows like this and Ron James, what is CBC thinking?
