12 episodes into Hiccups' first season and the show continues to be an enigma. One week it is a really funny show, and then the next it is far from that.
I have said that Brent Butt has put together a fine ensemble cast here, much like his previous show Corner Gas did, but I do not ever see this achieving the critical acclaim that did. Nancy Robertson is a really unlikable female lead, and when you can watch shows starring Tina Fey and Mary Louise-Parker, I do not see this ever breaking through as a top sitcom that features a woman at the helm. I just don't.
