I love Trailer Park Boys. In fact, I watched their 12 seasons in a row last year.
It's bizarre comedy, like a mockumentary with lots of sarcasm and disasters going on. First 2 or 3 chapters are slow burners, but then it gets going! They are from Canada.
I suggest you watch the original series on Netflix, those that have 12 seasons (not the animated ones). There are several artists appearing, like Rush, Sebastian Bach, C.S.N., Snoop Dogg and many more.

In the same vein, I just finished the new Norsemen season. Hilarious parody to Vikings and those kind of shows. Also on Netflix.
If you like TPB you might like Letterkenny. It's similar, but more the Ontario style of small-town people, and their style of humour. A lot of rapid-fire puns and chirping, rather than the East Coast people from TPB. Letterkenny is hard for me to watch, even when it's funny, because I grew up with every kind of person they show in it. :neutral:

Yes, I tried to watch Letterkenny but I couldn't find Spanish subtitles, neither a streaming service with Spanish subs. It has lot of Canadian references that I can't understand without them. Hope someday they make it available here!

I have been binging The West Wing. Another great show I am late to. (I didn't watch a lot of TV in the late 90s/early 20s) It's rhythm is similar to The Newsroom (HBO), although The West Wing is far more superior which came as a surprise to me since it is a 20 year old network television series.

I'm halfway through Season 2.

I read that Sorkin's involvement with the show ended at some point. (I'm trying not read about it since I want to avoid any spoilers.) I am hoping the show doesn't go down hill as a result of his departure. I would be so disappointed.

I've never seen The West Wing either. I should make it the next binge-watch.


Recently I've been watching P-Valley, The Chi, Wentworth final season.

*The Chi is an excellent show, imo.

Still watching The West Wing. Just started season 5. Love it. Very witty. It is one of the few shows that can make me laugh out loud.

I hate sitcoms. I hate almost anything on basic cable or network TV.

But as a big Super Troopers fan, I've been really happy with Tacoma FD. There are definitely stupid moments, but the majority of it is really, really funny in the way Super Troopers was. Small, subtle jokes that you either get or you don't. The Ike character in particular is hilarious.

Watching Brooklyn 99. I love sitcoms, as I tend to watch series and movies when I want to get away from everything.

GLOW

Really, really good. 80s snapshot, excellent acting and writing. It doesn't cut corners and is really smart and very funny.

I'm well into the third season and it's still good. :thumb:



GLOW is an American comedy-drama web television series created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch for Netflix.[1] The series revolves around a fictionalization of the characters and gimmicks of the 1980s syndicated women's professional wrestling circuit, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (or GLOW) founded by David McLane.[2]

The first season consists of 10 episodes and was released on June 23, 2017.[3][4] On August 10, 2017, Netflix renewed the series for a second season of 10 episodes, which was released on June 29, 2018.[5] The series was renewed on August 20, 2018, for a third season, which was released on August 9, 2019.[6][7] On September 20, 2019, the series was renewed for a fourth and final season.[8]
