Canada has created some great TV over the many years. The Beachcombers, Corner Gas, This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Red Green Show and The Trailer Park Boys which their 10th season went live Monday Night on Netflix! I’m a huge fan of the series; the fake documentary about 3 guys who live in a trailer park and try and make a living but always end up back in jail is one of the greatest TV shows in Canadian history!
Now I know what you’re saying, how can a show that promotes drinking, crime, drug use, bad language and prison be one of the greatest shows in Canadian history? Well John Dunsworth (Mr.Lahey) had this same argument with Jim Nunn from CBC Nova Scotia and put him in his place. Take a look!
This show is loved by many people around the world, the Trailer Park Boys are broadcasted in 16 different countries and now the world with the help of Netflix, the show has also sparked different world wide comedy tours featuring Rick, Bubbles and Julian and then a side act with Mr.Lahey and Randy. Mr.Lahey and Randy have been though Yorkton, Esterhazy and Dauphin many times over the last 5 years I have lived here and sold out every show! The show has had 3 feature films which all continue the legacy of the show after Showcase dropped the series from Cable TV and showed back up on Netflix!
A show that you can watch after you have the worst day of your life but feel better after because you know, it can’t be any worse than how they have it. Call the show filth, embarrassing or just plain awful but to me one of the greatest shows in Canadian History!
