The Bounties of Halifax
Caught an episode of Trailer Park Boys in the hotel room while in Halifax playing at the Atlantic Jazz Fest last week (lovely gig, btw, thank you jazzeast). Hadn't seen it in some years and it still cracked us up. We watched a couple old episodes last night just to see how the early seasons held up over time, and in small doses, Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, et al are pretty hilarious. There are few half hour comedy shows I could watch episode after episode, and this might not be one of them, but it comes pretty close. Anyone recommend a half hour funny that you could watch more than 4 episodes of in a row, I'd be interested to hear. Ricky's hairdo hasn't changed, Julian still has a rum and coke in hand at all times, and Bubbles' accent and glasses are thick as ever. If you've never seen it, take TPB for a spin, and let me know what you think.
