I fell in love with this awesome comedy saga last year. This show is so rich, so funny, so compulsively watchable, I had to figure out why. So I would up writing a collection of essays called FIFTY SHADES OF TRAILER PARK BOYS: TPB in the Great Comedic Traditions. It's a great look at the history of fiction, especially comedy, seen the through examples of great modern comedies and, of course, Trailer Park Boys. It's a great xmas gift for the TPB fan in your life! At Amazon now.
I love watching Red Green. How I missed this Canadian series astounds me. I'm in northern Minnesota, you'd have thought I'd have heard about it. Within a day of watching a few episodes, I ordered every dvd of the series. Tv, and movies. I know people who live in trailer parks who emulate the cast of Trailer Park Boys. They were playing the parts 30 years ago, and they didn't realize someone would make a movie about it someday. I thoroughly have enjoyed watching this series. And I will be having showings of it for my friends . They'll have to leave the guns, and drugs at the door. Fun show, thanks, StreetRodder
At first, I was skeptical of this crude, cheaply-made Canadian mockumentary focused mainly on the lives of three friends who are constantly concocting get rich quick schemes. The three main characters, Ricky, Julian and Bubbles come together and become a forceful comedic trio as the show progresses. Having the characters be so different leads the show to never have a dull moment. A must watch for anyone who enjoys adult-oriented humor.
The best show in my opinion to come out of Canada. The show follows Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles who are always in and out of jail. Ricky is a marijuana grower and dealer, Julian, a person always looking to get rich fast, and always has an alcoholic drink in his hand, Bubbles who loves cats, and is a very lovable person. The show also Has Mr.Lahey the trailer park supervisor, an alcoholic, and later a cop once again, and Randy a cheeseburger addicted weekend trailer park supervisor. The show is going to be one of Canada's classic comedies, and i suggest you see it.
Like most people when I first saw this show I thought it was just another mindless low budget comedy series aimed at the dim-witted pot smokers among us. Then I watched it more and became mesmerized by the underlying brilliance, everything was not as it seemed, from the beautifully languid intro music, to the ingenious documentary style of filming. Much like SCTV, it uses the low budget quality of the show, and turns that into a bonus. THe shaky hand-held camera, the occasional boom mic shot all blend perfectly with the mostly improvised dialogue. There's something uniquely Canadian about this, making the best out of the fewest resources, and it demonstrates the greatness of the show that it does not need huge production values to make you laugh your ass off. And laugh you will as you watch the main characters, Ricky, Julian and Bubbles stumble their way through life. We have all met people like this, much like in the movie "Fubar", people who are completely ignorant and emotionally underdeveloped, yet very much content with their position in life. Both Fubar and TPB, the key is not to make fun of these people in a condescending way, look equally at their naive stupidity but also at their loyalty and innocence and genuineness.
This is an insult to Canadian Television(and that's saying something!)The mindless drivel seen on Trailer Park Boys is enough to make you long for reality television. It is probably the worst show on tv. Just watching it makes you feel like your brain cells are dissintigrating! Please don't watch this offensive, pathetic attempt at humor and originality. The sooner it gets cancelled, the better.
This is one of the worst show i've ever seen in my life. This show has a lot of stupid jokes and rude languages, and all those jokes are very retarded and i dont find them funny AT ALL. It is such a shame on Canadians. They arent what Canadians are like, they are just a bunch of idiots who are very ignorant and all they do it smoking weed and getting drunk. Showcase could obviously do better than this..... Bascially this show is completly waste of time and show case should definalty get rid of this ridiculously dumb show and put on some awesome shows like WEEDS!
Bubbles, Julian, and Ricky are three guys from the trailer park trying to make it big. They pull off jobs that fail constantly or end up getting them arrested again and again. Bubbles with his stealing shopping carts so that he can feed his cats, Julian striving to set up a job that doesn't end with him or Ricky in jail, and Ricky with his visions of grandeur as well as trying to get back into Lucy's good graces, seems to get them into trouble with the law. Either by Jim Lahey or Randy. It is a show I will surely miss and hope to have a few surprises along the way.
Trailer Park Boys is a very stupid show but if you can get past how stupid and unbelievable/ridiculous it is it is also a very very funny show! The characters are all well played and very over the top funny. My favourite is Lahey the drunk ex-cop now trailer park superviser at Sunnyvale Trailer Park. He takes his job really seriously and his assistant Randy is always shirtless with an unbelievably puffed out stomach. Julian always has a rye and coke in his hand, and he always commits crimes with his stupid friend and the always hilarious Bubbles, so named because of his thick glasses. Check out the show if you haven't seen it it is very funny! Not for kids, lots of swearing and even some nudity/sexual situations, etc.
This is a fantastic show, not many can rival it. To last seven seasons and still be totally hilarious is outstanding. It's extremely well casted, and it seems that the actors have a great time making the show; witch makes it a great time watching it too.
It's completely underrated, and not given the credit it deserves here in the UK, if it was advertised at prime time, it would get a big audience. Trailer Park Boys recently lost two main characters, Cory and Trevor, but where as other shows would crumble, Trailer Park Boys grew stronger, with the longest season yet being the seventh, even without Cory and Trevor, it was a delight top watch.
I love this show and everything about it, and I hope they continue to bring us brilliant and classics moments for many years to come.
Ricky, Bubbles, and Julian, the perfect trio for a laugh. With the boys getting on Lahey's and Randy's last nerve you know theres going to be trouble. We know they'll either go to jail(most always happens) or not, but we know for sure we will get a laugh.
Three boys grew up together. Being friends from the beginning, and having fun all the way. When they started they were humble kids, hanging out with Randy, until he got baked, then they left him. Pursuing a career, the boys try every way to make some money. Unfortunately, the one they hang out with-Randy-grew up to become assistant trailer park supervisor. Now, with every chance he and Lahey get, they try and thwart the boys hopes of becoming retired. Will the boys succeed, fail, or will one of them end in jail. Well, for these answers tune into the Trailer Park Boys, Canada's finest show ever made. When you watch you are guaranteed to laugh at Ricky the clown, Lahey the drunk, or Bubbles and his kitties. So when you read "why did I watch," well when you watch an episode, you'll know why!
This show is genius... we need more episodes!! it is clever enough for viewers to watch an episode and wholly enjoy it, as it only has a loose attatchment to ongoing storylines, much like Friends, and each episode is focused on an adventure.
I love Bubbles the best, and Conky. And Steve French. And the way he says 'FFFack Ricky!"
And J Roc, 'Ya know what im seyyyin??' Also we love it in England so much, we need it on actual telly here, rather that on DVD....Dave TV should pick it up... everyone write them an email.. http://uktv.co.uk/uktv/item/aid/528249 because that would be awesome, even if youre from outside the UK...do it for us...
The Trailer Park Boys are some of the funniest people on Earth. They are always scheming to make whatever money they can, whether that be from stealing and selling meat, to growing marijuana, their constant struggle to make an easy dollar is truly hilarious.
My favourite character is probably Ricky, due to the fact that he is the one who spearheads most of the stupid get rich quick schemes that they get themselves into. Not to mention he is one of the most original and hilarious characters of any television show out there. When he is swearing his head off, I can't help but laugh mine off. Now, thats not to say that the rest of the cast isn't downright hilarious, because they all are. Whether it be his drunken father, his best friends Julian and Bubbles who go along with his plans and end up getting screwed along with him, or his on-again-off-again girlfriend Lucy who is constantly asking him to help her out, yet never helps herself. The show is non-stop laughs from start to finish, and I believe it is truly one of the best comedies to hit the airways in a long, long time.
All hail trailer park boys, the funniest show on television. This show is an absolute must-watch. The plot of the show has already been summed-up by the other comments on the board, so I'll only say: watch this show it is hilarious It's hysterical. everyone must watch trailer park boys its the best First of all it love how its a fake documentary i find they lose this around season four i also found season 6 and 7 werent that great by far the best was either 5 or 2 r even 1 so like isaid before everyone must watch this show it is great, in fact very great

this show makes you want to never stop watching it. ive watched every single trailer park boys episode and i still cant get enough of it. they put so much time and effort into every episode that they cant make enough episodes. i think they should make an episode where bubles and ricky play golf. the cast on this show plays their parts absololutly great you almost think that you are there and that this is reakky happening to them right now. i think the humor is really original. every day is a perfect day to watch trailer park boys. what a great show!
At first i didnt have a clue what to make of this show - it was like nothing i had ever seen before. It is a spoof documentary set among a bunch of freaks and odd balls living on a Canadian trailer park. However as you watch it and they tell you about their hopes and fears you start to care about them and even empathise with them, which is unusual for a comedy. Despite the fact that all the characters are over exaggerated thay are also very human.
It is also a laugh out loud comedy about dope, kitties, petty crime, dope, family, friends, dope, drinking, burgers, dope, trollies, bare chests, being happy with what you have got(for the most part) and more dope.
The first time i saw it i wasnt sure if i would like it, but as jroc says if it happened to me it can happen to you
This show is so good i cant find the words for it.When i first saw this show being advertised i thought to myself that looks so boring and cheaply made,why would anyone watch it.Then one day i thought screw it lets see what is like,and thank god i did.The show is basically about a gang of pals that get upto some quick money schemes,that always seem to go wrong.The cast is so good and everyone of them brings a mad quality to the show.If you like to laugh then i advise you to watch this,as it's my favourite comedy show and each episode never fails to make me laugh.
This show is a great departure from many other shows that I have seen. All the crazy things that happens and all the, thankfully, uncensored swearing makes the show feel fresh and untethered. The story follows a bunch of friends living in a trailer park called Sunnyvale. We follow the boys as they steal, grows dope and get drunk. Filmed from the perspective of a documentary. They do everything in a way that make even the worst slob seem graceful by comparison, but it still feels endearing. No matter how many bad and/or botched things they do I always find my self rooting for them. And therein lies the charm of Trailer Park Boys.
I laughed...I cried...I stole yer freakin lawn furniture!
But seriously...one of these days, the boys will pull off the big dirty and then you will all be sorry. Ricky, Julian & Bubbles are completely hammered at all times and have proven beyond any possible doubt that they are on the golden path to the grand exalted big dirty, and be damned the cost. If you get shot, if Ricky runs you over, if Bubbles throws his cats on you, Julian will still not spill a single drop. A freakin laugh riot. Pass me the chips and gimme a smoke.
This show is awsome. I like how it is unlike normal television. Nothing here is sacred and I mean nothing. I love how it features everything that is not normamlly featured on television all together in one show like swearing, weed, drinking, smoking, guns etc. This takes a funny view on all of these problems that are normally frowned upon on normal television and makes one laugh riot out of it. I can't believe this show got started from a short film that one producer just saw as a gem in the rough and decided to pick it up. It is so awesome that I can't get enough of it. Plus it is totally canadian filmed out around Dartmouth Nova Scotia and when these actors are seen in public, they never break their character. The director calls it a mockumentary documentary and I just love how unpolished this show looks like becasue it actually gives it the appearance as if this is actually real life which just makes it more hilarious. This show is an absolute gem.
One of my Swedish friends told me about this Canadian show. He gets junk TV so he downloads some of our quality North American TV.
Im not particularly sure what channel, if any, this show appears on with my US cable service, but I decided to download a couple episodes to check it out.
Its a really interesting show. Interesting in the sense that they make the TV show like a documentary, as the characters put it. Obviously, I doubt that this is a true documentary since the casting seems to be quite perfect in all cases, besides the fact that no one seems to have any problem with what they say in front of a camera. But they make it feel like it is realtime even if it is all script memorization like with all TV shows.
At first I was starting to dislike it but after watching a few episodes it is quite entertaining. I find it to be similar to Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, in that the main characters go on some ridiculous adventure for the day, and something strange happens that is rather entertaining. Each episode is something new, however the episodes are connected to one another, similar to Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Connected in that they arent just random shows like Seinfeld or CSI or the sort, rather something happens with one episode that sticks for a few episodes (e.g. the guys get out of jail on parole and they keep bringing that up, or the relationship status with Ricky and his girlfriend, etc.). I dont mind that kind of connection. It is a very weak connection between episodes which allows a person to jump in the show at any time as opposed to most NBC and FOX shows like 24 or the sort.
The show isnt exactly laugh out loud funny, as I initially expected, but it is rather comical at parts and I find myself waiting to see how things turn out at the end of the thirty minute show.
Oh and that Bubbles character...he is great. So realistic.
Mild language accompanies this show, so it seems like something that would appear on HBO down here in the states. But the language enhances things.
Looks like I have another 6 seasons to catch up on...I'll get back to watching.
I want to start off by saying that i used to be one of the people that thought Trailer Park boys was boring. Trailer Park Boys is like that huge classic book you had to read for whatever reason. All you ever hear about is how great it is and so you figure you have to check out what all the hype is about. So you pick it up and read it and are bored out of your mind. You question what all the people were talking about and so you decide to at least give it a longer chance. And that is when you fall in love. Slowly you start to understand the characters more and you start to see the patterns foming and you satart to really enjoy it. That is how people come to be fans of Trailer Park Boys. It is one of the funniest Canadian shows on tv. All of the characters compliment each other perfectly and that is the real strenght of the show is the depth to the characters. Anyway i can\'t recomend it any more then this! WATCH THE SHOW!!! And for anyone who is against the use of foul language... Knock Knock (watch the show and you\'ll get that joke)
Admittedly it took me a little while to warm up to this show. I was given the Season 1 & 2 DVD for Christmas and so I decided to watch a few episodes. The first couple, 'Take your little gun and get out of my trailer park' and F**k community college, let's get drunk and eat chicken fingers' worried me because I wasn't quite getting into the style of their humour. But after the third episode 'Mr. Lahey's got my Porno tape!', I was really starting to come around. The show has a complete absense of obvious jokes and set-up gags, which is incredibly refreshing admist the likes of <i>Will & Grace</i> and other simply 5 camera sitcoms. Instead the comedy comes from the stupidity of some phrasing (especially Ricky's) and the craziness of the characters, much more along the lines of <i>Curb your Enthusiasm</i>. <i>Trailer Park Boys</i> is also interesting in the way that it directly references the filming crew, making it a true mockumentary like <i>The Office</i>. Initially this seemed like an odd and distracting choice, but it is cleverly worked into the script to allow for soliloque-type monologues and the characters of the film crew even come into the story, such as when the sound guy gets shot and Julian has to take him to the hospital.
The acting, particularly from the actor playing Julian, is not always that great, but Ricky and Bubbles are hilarious. And the stories are also engaging and presented in a cool format, allowing characters like J-Roc and Mr. Lahey to come in and out whenever they are needed.
It may tame you a while to warm up to <i>Trailer Park Boys</i> and get the hang of this wildly different show but give it a chance, you may end up discover how laugh-out-loud funny it actually is.
Trailer Park Boys is the Best Canadian show ever following the lives of Ricky, Julian, Bubbles and others on their hilarious quests around Sunny Ville Trailer Park. I hope the producers and the writers keep pumping out good episodes because this show is a personal favorite and I hope to be watching it for many years to come. Trailer Park Boys is Canadian heritage to a T the actors / actresses are perfect for their roles. I love the whole scripted reality angle because it makes the show look like its real which doubles the dos of laughs. Can’t wait till the next season.
Trailer park boys is a show about three friends Ricky, Julian and Bubbles who have a bunch of get rich quick scemes. But at the end of every season ther sceme backfires and they end up going to jail. It takes place in sunnyvale trailer park Nova Scotia and for some of you who dont know where that is it's in atlantic Canada. When I first started watching this show I thought wow thats alot of swearing. Then as time grew on I really liked it now it's one of my favorites. What can I say It's also very funny because Ricky didnt finish high school so he has a bad vocabulary and you will find him saying things like 'that's going to be way way way awesomer'.
If you like shows with alot of swearing I suggest this one. Later....
