Storyline

This comedy series stands halfway between the average sitcom and Tarantinoesque production. It focuses on Curtis, a weird couch potato who never leaves his home and watches the Rex Reilly Show (Geraldo on acid) all day long. Also of importance are his room-mates Hope and Nathan and Lucky the cat. To some extent, the show might be considered a wild satire of Generation-X life in Toronto. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

Nathan: [to a visibly annoyed Curtis] Frooty O's are NOT cat food.
Curtis: She likes them.
Nathan: She does not like them. The bowl is full. And even if she did - EVEN if she loved them, even if she ate them everyday, she would die within a week, because this CRAP has absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever.
Curtis: Yeah, but they sure taste good.
Nathan: They're not life-sustaining Curtis! Technically they're not even food!
Curtis: [raising his voice] Well what's was I suppose to do? I didn't want to waste them on her in the first place, ...

One of the best pieces of televison ever created!!!
19 January 2002 | by robinsoberSee all my reviews

Quirky, odd, and extremely funny. We loved this series. If you ever have the chance to see it...do not miss it. The series takes place in the Kensington Market area of Toronto, although outdoor shots are few, as most of the action takes place in the apartment (in close proximity to the television set). A cast of interesting characters wind their way in and out of the series, making for some great viewing.
