Like Flaming Needles In My Eyes!
20 September 2010 | by doctorawesomepantsSee all my reviews

Hiccups is so awful that it is actually physically painful to me to watch it. As bad as that other awful, former-Corner Gas-cast-members show Dan for Mayor is, Hiccups is a hundred times worse.

Brent Butt is back in a much less funny role (even compared to the last couple seasons of Corner Gas when it was not a very good show at all). He is a life coach who is inexplicably married to a much better looking and much, much younger Hispanic wife, and who is out of money. As luck would have it, another former Corner Gas employee, Nancy Robertson, needs to hire him to help her because she often overreacts and has complete fits in front of people even though she is a.... wait for it.... children's book author! Get it? She writes books for kids but she freaks out about stuff! Imagine it.... now whatever you are imagining, know that it is much funnier than this show actually is.

The writing is terrible and every performance is wooden. Half the time what the characters are doing doesn't even make any sense. I can't believe this show is actually on the air.... it's shows like this that give Canadian TV a bad name.
