To me it's a gentle, clever, Canadian single-camera no laughtrack sitcom it's almost always enjoyable. Perhaps best to have discovered originally before so much hype. I think the performances are wonderful. For an old-timer like me , who used to waiting for Saturday Night Live to be over waiting for Second City TV to come on, I'm just a big fan of Eugene Levy, and particularly Catherine O'Hara. I think it's charming the David Levy gets to create more and more stories pushing, if you want to call it his "agenda." And Annie Murphy as his sister is always interesting to watch. Not a great show,  but just a nice change from so much slam-bang humor.

I realize that, and I was always a huge SCTV fan, also. But I think it could use at least a little humor to leaven the impact of not having a single character with any redeeming qualities. When I saw how badly Chris Elliott has aged, I nearly tossed my toast.
