sno man: Breaker Moran: I watched three episodes of the first season last night.  It's not bad.  6 seasons is a bit mystifying though.

it evolves.


It does!

When I first started watching, I figured I was going to loathe half the people on the show, like what happened with "The Office". But I was very pleasantly surprised. I ended up loving pretty much everyone, and that rarely happens with me. I'm allergic to "redemption arcs" and such like, but this show's approach makes all of it a joy.

And the show is laugh-out-loud funny quite often.

Gonna really miss it.

Bslim: I've tried to get into it two different times but I just I can't get past Chris Elliott's character.


That's . . . sort of the point of Roland.

Everyone knows that person who's just "too much", all the time.  They invite themselves to things, they're not as funny as they think they are, etc.

But, like every character on the show, that's the surface.  He has depths of character in there.  And he serves a really important role in the show; he is to the Roses what the Roses are to everyone else (including the audience).  As the audience learns that the Roses can be more than useless cliches of rich people, the Roses learn that Roland Schitt's the long-time mayor of Schitt's Creek for good reasons.  And it goes a long way to explaining  why the townsfolk are so accepting of the Roses, overall, honestly.

He's never not Roland; he doesn't really change over the course of the show.  But you get to see enough of the strength of character beneath the surface that you start to give him some leeway.

I absolutely LOVE that show! It's up there with P&R for me.

I'm sorry it's over :(   I hope David has more magic up his sleeve, and Eugene!

Moira was my spirit animal. I am going to miss her.

This series is definitely DVD worthy, and I say that about very, very few shows.

I have a few to catch up on. It seems like a show where everyone truly liked each other and treated each other well. Solid run and I'll miss the show and David and Moira's outfits.

6 seasons... They wanted to wrap it up before they got old and stale.

I really liked this show, and that really shocked me.  Daniel Levy's work as David reminds me very much of how most of my experiences with gay friends have been - it really didn't matter ... it was just who he was, and you already liked the person he was.  He was so good in the role, though, I just really want to see him in something else to decide if he was a great actor, or that was just him being him. 

Don't care either way - you could replace every best friend role in every cheesy Rom Com movie for the rest of time with him and it would be a dramatic improvement.

Canadian here. Grew up on SCTV with Levy and O'Hara (and Candy, Moranis, etc). I didn't start watching this series until a month ago and it's simply amazing television. I'll be sad when I get to the end.

Dingleberry Dickwad: I just started watching this a few weeks ago, and I'm a couple episodes deep into season 2. I'm really liking it so far, although I still don't like Moira or Roland very much. Stevie is probably my favorite character so far.


Roland never clicks for me. Moira quickly rises to be the favorite.

I haven't finished this season yet, but I have really enjoyed the overall arc of the show.

Bear in mind that it's kind of like Parks and Recreation, in that the first season starts slow and it takes some time to warm to the characters as they develop some redeeming qualities.

PictureAWave: Atomic Jonb: Catherine O'Hara stole every scene she was in.  Every.Goddam.One.

I want Moira Rose to be the spokeswoman for every product ever advertised for the rest of time.


My wife the other night saw a Kim Crawford wine commercial where the woman looks all serious. Wife says "Moira could have gotten me to buy that crap."

It starts off slow, but really takes off in season 2.

I liked that what I thought was going to be a 2-dimensional cheesecom turned out to have interesting and evolving characters who are not caricatures repeating their catchphrases each week.

David Rose's poor attempts to hide his real feelings are hilarious, like when Roland asked him for help shopping for women's clothing.

Also, Twyla in the sack: Fellini or Kafka?
