Less Than Kind

Well, this is one TV show (Canadian! I kid you not!!) Mrs. That Dan Guy and I are arriving to just a little late. We're not even sure how we heard about it - but it had something to do with either the passing of star Maury Chaykin, or discovering that it was set in Winnipeg.

Winnipeg!! Our hometown!! City of our birth and raisin'!!!

Well, as soon as I heard that little nugget, I set the PVR to catch the two episodes that aired last night (three if you include the short vignette in tribute to the aforementioned Chaykin). I remember wondering out loud "maybe Stephen Eric McIntyre will show up in an episode" (out loud, it didn't sound like that crazy of a possibility...).

Well, sure enough - within minutes of the first episode, there rolls up Stephen Eric McIntyre. But more than that - the show is terrific, and doesn't seem to be suffering from the loss of such a legendary talent in the family patriarch. We were cracking up, and getting engaged in the story lines, despite having missed probably a season or two. Hell, we'll catch up, via our new and more friendly TV, internet and phone provider (very, very soon).

The episode where the line "save yourself!" was blurted out during driving instructions I think will become as legendary as any mainstream network TV show. You'll find this one on HBO Canada:

Can't wait for next week!

Chow for now.....
