Three 40-something best friends from Los Angeles are flying to Paris when their plane makes an emergency landing in Cleveland. Realizing that all the norms from Los Angeles don't apply anymore, they decide to celebrate a city that values real women and stay where they're still considered hot.
This show is really unfunny. From what I read it's by a super amazing producer in the U.S. but maybe he just mailed it in for this so he could collect a big bag of money. Typical. I just wrote a review for Satisfaction which is also awful and I am so sad for the state of Canadian TV and films. I am very disappointed by how unfunny these shows are.
Where to begin for Package Deal? The writing just stinks. It is about 10-15 years behind the times. Maybe the producer of this is doing this because he was successful in the U.S. 10 years ago and just can't move with the times. It is like watching someone do a show with the same jokes in a sitcom that would have been maybe a little funny in the 90's.
The premise is a stretch because what guy has two brothers about his same age (all in their freaking 40's) who control his life and get worried about him dating a girl and by the way the girl is hot and successful.... oh obviously they wouldn't want that! What the hell? The actors are bad. The main actor and his girlfriend are very unfunny, not sure why but it's typical and sad that Canadian comedy shows cast OK to look at people to have their own comedy shows but that can't do comedy at all! It's terrible. The other two guys are both comedians, I guess they figured they could lift the show up. Harland Williams is amazing and I love his comedy and he is OK in this but the writing again is so terrible he has nothing to work with. The other guy is a huge nerd of a character and super annoying but I can't tell how much of that is that he sucks and how much of it is that the writing stinks so much.
The other reviewer is right, skip this show because it's 30 minutes you'll just wish you had back and you'll just feel depressed about Canadian TV like me. Ugh this sucks.
