Trailer Park Boys
I am absolutely loving Trailer Park Boys. It's my new favorite show; I didn't think anything could come close to Six Feet Under for me...but alas, I've found a new love.
Don't get me wrong, Trailer Park Boys isn't anything like Six Feet Under; TPB rather, it is so hilariously funny--pretty consistently--that I find myself lawl-ing during every episode.
I found out about it when my husband suggested that we watch the movie. When he mentioned it, I wasn't too thrilled (I mean, a whole movie about a trailer park? What the hell?), but the funny stuff started coming and I was hooked.
Basically, (and I'm not going to be able to give it justice) the show is about these three friends in their 30s who have lived in a trailer park in Canada (Nova Scotia?) their whole lives. Everyone who lives in this trailer park seem to live off of government assistance, so they all have low, limited incomes and don't do anything. They seem pretty content with their lives and all of the stereotypes that one might think of when thinking of a trailer park--bleach-blonde hair with the roots showing, lots of drinking, smoking weed, etc.--are all present.
The three friends named Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles are always trying to find ways to get rich--these ways usually include dealing/growing weed. It never works; Ricky lives out of his car, Bubbles lives in a modded-out shed...Ricky is the only one to have his own trailer. The adventures these guys have is just funny! And, not to be forgotten, every season ends with at least one of the guys going to jail, while the first show in every season begins with them getting out of jail. Funny stuff!
So far, out the the seven total seasons, we've gone through four of them and started number five. I'm going to be so sad when it's over!
For anyone who is looking for something funny, give these guys a try!
