Storyline

In the small town of Shuckton, Ontario, which has just placed a bid to host the 2028 Summer Olympics, its mayor, Larry Bowman, is found murdered. As the authorities investigate, other townsfolk with a personal history to the deceased mayor conduct their own unofficial investigations to see if they can discover who committed the murder. Life in Shuckton continues under the leadership of the new mayor who has her own agenda, and under the watchful eye of the local news team, who not only have more news to cover than usual but who are dealing with their own internal issues. But as life continues, so does Death, he who has some more names on his list and some old scores to settle. Written by Huggo

I'd go to the 2028 Olympics at Shuckton!
16 September 2010 | by InzyWimzySee all my reviews

This caught me by surprise..even more so than when I was in line at the Halal stand and Flying Pig came out of nowhere saying "Wow, what a lineup. But don't worry, look at me! Hey hey!!".

It's just a blast seeing the guys doing what they do best. KITH sets the stage and introduces an array of new characters with that great humor with a dark edge. What's great about their brand of comedy is they really never held any punches. This can be seen throughout the series. The interactions really cracked me up: the Mayor and Marilyn, Marnie & Ricky, Crim & Sam Murray, Death and...everybody else! How about the Breaking News crew...Levon's facial indifference is priceless (thanks to Dave of course). And how can you beat a name like Rampop! The only downside with this is it's brief length of 8 eps...but I'm not complaining. Bruce really shines as Ricky Jarvis who's probably my fave character. Crim in his hazed out germ gel state is also a blast.

Hey KITH, keep them coming!
