Manage episode 260914552 series 2502931
This episode is basically an hour-long of us singing the praises of sitcom “Schitt’s Creek,” written and produced by Dan Levy and Eugene Levy. Its season finale aired in April so now is the perfect time to talk about this show, which went from a little-known series when it first aired in Canada 5 years ago to a breakout success with a ferocious fan base (us included.)
The show tells the story of a rich family who lost all of their wealth overnight and had to move to a small town called “Schitt’s Creek,” which they bought originally as a joke. It’s a classic “fish out of water” story but infused with authenticity, warm and funny dialogues and characters who are so specific yet so relatable.
Izzy and Ina invited a new friend, Walton, to talk about what this show means to him. Having yet to come out to his parents, Walton said the wedding scene in the finale where two male characters celebrated their love in front of their parents gave him hope that he never knew he needed.
Unlike some of our more dense episodes, this one doesn’t deviate from the show much. This is an entire hour of unadulterated joy where we talk about how much we love the wonderful world Dan Levy created. We also talk about TV representation of pansexuality and comedy as a collective creative format.
Wherever you are, we hope you stay well, physically and mentally. Enjoy the show!
