Storyline

Seed is a single-camera, half-hour comedy following Harry, a likable bachelor and bartender whose previous foray into sperm donation has resulted in offspring he was unaware of - until now. This ill-equipped bachelor finds himself entangled in the lives of his newfound children and their less-than-thrilled families - a lesbian couple and their 9-year-old oddball son, an up-tight, upper-class husband and wife and their rebellious teenage daughter, and an impulsive single woman with a ticking biological clock... pregnant with his child - with whom he'll come to share more than just his DNA.

Promising fresh comedy
5 February 2013 | by roberta-smith7See all my reviews

Clever writing. Good characters, Brisk pacing. No annoying laugh track. Very promising. John Doyle of the Globe and Mail" got it right on this one: "There's a lot going on and, at the same time, nothing. Seed touches lightly on gay marriage, non- traditional families and kids who are troubled by their parents and school.

If there's a theme, it's that everybody just gets along, sometimes with helpful advice from the village idiot, a character who is untainted by the neuroses of being grown-up and burdened by middle-class mores.

A lot depends on Korson (who has a lot of theatre experience and a few small TV and film roles), and he's superb as the immature Harry, who has a natural sense of right and wrong and a bizarre brand of common sense. He's in almost every scene and, in the two episodes I watched, doesn't wear out his welcome.

The series was created by newcomer Joseph Raso and developed by Raso and Mark Farrell (also a producer and writer on the show), the latter being a 22 Minutes and Corner Gas veteran. Karen Wentzell, formerly a Trailer Park Boys producer, also produces here. While the production company is Vancouver-based Force Four Entertainment, Seed was made in Halifax using a lot of local talent and it shows – there's that cheerful, expansive weirdness that characterizes Trailer Park Boys, Mr. D and other emanations from that neck of the woods. Thus, Seed is dumb and adorable, and ours."
