I don't watch sitcoms on TV, not any of them and I haven't for several years. They're all a boringly similar substrate that needs to take advantage of lowest-common-denominator humour to "succeed".
"Slings and Arrows" was wickedly original in its concept, brilliantly daring in its presentation, hilariously funny-slash-poignant in its content and just a "who's who" of Canadian talent. And I do mean talent. Paul Gross and Martha Burns as regulars and then in and out of "New Burbage" flitted the likes of Rachel McAdams, Sarah Polley, Colm Feore, Geraint Wyn Davies, Peter Keleghan...and the list goes on.
Over the top storylines about the "creative half", but really, really good comedy.
Alas, I knew it well...
