Today I bring you my new favorite comedy of all-time. You have no idea how glad I am that Letterkenny was recommended to me! As I am writing this, 9 seasons have been released but there are more come and I can’t wait.
The Plot (as found on RT):
This comedy series showcases the antics of the residents of Letterkenny, a small rural community in Canada. Siblings Wayne and Katy run a small farm and produce stand, with Wayne’s friends Daryl and “Squirrely” Dan helping out. Many of the town’s inhabitants fall into one of several groups, which include the farmers, or “hicks,” the out-of-towners on the local hockey team, the local drug addicts and the “natives,” who are members of the local First Nation. “Letterkenny” began its life as a YouTube series called “Letterkenny Problems.”
As you may have gathered from the introduction, I absolutely love this show. 😅
Honestly, I had no expectations going in, I hadn’t even heard of the series until somebody sat me down to watch it. I was done for from the first episode on. I swear, everything about this show is absolutely brilliant!
First of all, the writing. I think I said about 7 million times while watching this that the writers deserve all the awards in the world. The show is funny to a degree that your belly will hurt from laughing so hard. But it’s not just funny, it’s also smart. The banter between the characters is witty, eloquent and I simply admire the writers for being able to come up with so many great puns. Letterkenny really is unlike anything else I have ever seen in that regard. So far, they managed to keep the quality super high throughout all seasons. I am convinced that the upcoming season will be no exception in that regard.Continue reading
