One of the funniest TV shows ever - Letterkenny

This may not be for everyone but there is a relatively recent Canadian TV show that is, IMHO, one of the funniest shows ever. It is called Letterkenny. It aired on CraveTV which is kind of a Canadian equivalent of Netflix but it is occasionally on some channels in Canada. Or you can find the odd clip on Youtube or other places on the internet.

If you liked Trailer Park Boys then you will like this - but definitely not family entertainment.

I'll have to check that out. I started watching Schitt's Creek on Netflix and it is also hilarious!

Similar in that it is set in a small rural town, but much raunchier as it is a cable series.

Letterkenny did well at the Canadian Screen Awards this year:

http://www.tv-eh.com/2017/03/12/murd...n-awards-gala/

'Corner Gas' is classic. 'Schitt's Creek' and 'Kim's Convenience' also picked up awards. Canadian comedy is definitely unique. Looking forward to season 11 of Trailer Park Boys on Netflix, as well as the latest adaptation of 'Anne', also picked up by Netflix.

[QUOTE=tvmaster2;604305Looking forward to season 11 of Trailer Park Boys on Netflix, as well as the latest adaptation of 'Anne', also picked up by Netflix.[/QUOTE]I would have to think that Anne and the TPB and Letterkenny are at the opposite ends of the spectrum of entertainment, at least when it comes to being family friendly, etc.

I'm pretty sure that is the most stereotypical Canadian thing I've ever seen.

Funny though.

Canadians enjoy their stereotyping, and they do it well

Season 1 has been released on DVD. Other than that I don't know that there are any legal ways. Season 4 was just released on Christmas Day.

ok, good, I thought I was nuts - looked everywhere, Amazon, iTunes, Netflix, Comedy Central. It canít be just because itís Canadian - that would suggest extreme narrow-mindedness by American programmers...

It is originally on CraveTV which is a Canadian version of Netflix owned by Bell, which also owns many cable channels and is the AT&T of Canada.

I am surprised that it hasn’t been picked up by anyone in the US, like Showtime.

yeah, thanks. I was on the Crave site, and while I pay for decent, working VPN services, Iím not a Crave sub.
