"Roland Schitt" is a play on words and sounds a lot like "roll in" Schitt. Same goes with "Horace Schitt", which sounds like "horse" Schitt.

The premise of this show -- particularly the first season -- owes a debt to, of all things, "Gilligan's Island," which also featured a band of entitled persons trapped in an environment from which they could not escape. Like the castaways of that beloved sitcom, the Rose family struggles to invent routes for departure that never come to pass. The thirteenth episode of season one ("Town for Sale") epitomizes the concept: at the outset, the Rose family is delightedly packing for what they believe will be their long-awaited reprieve, only to find their dreams have gone up in smoke half an hour later.
