If you’re in search of a laugh-out-loud comedy to watch during your time off, look no further than Schitt’s Creek.
Schitt’s Creek might just be that comedy that you’ve heard about or have placed on your watchlist for months, but you just haven’t gotten around to hitting play. If that’s the case, you should definitely change that right away.
I was once in that same boat. A few years ago, I saw a promo for a new episode on Pop TV, and told myself that I should absolutely watch that show. Needless to say, I didn’t turn it on until 2020 started when I found out the show’s sixth and final season was airing.
Do I regret waiting that long to watch Schitt’s Creek? Maybe just a little bit. I’ve watched the entire series twice already because it’s super easy to binge and will make you laugh until tears stream down your cheeks. It’s truly therapeutic.
So, if you’re stuck at home for the time being and need a pick-me-up show to binge watch, here are five reasons why Schitt’s Creek should’ve already been at the top of your list.
A fall from riches
The show’s premise centers around the Rose family, consisting of Johnny, Moira, David, and Alexis, who are forced to live out of a motel when their rich lifestyle is ripped away. Ironically, this motel is located in a small town that they own. Yes, that would Schitt’s Creek.
At first, the Rose family appears snobby and possibly unlikeable, but it doesn’t take long before you’re rooting for them to find happiness. Instead of laughing at them for their misfortunes, you end up laughing with them as they encounter some of the most ridiculous personalities.
Father-son duo Eugene and Dan Levy, who portray John and David, created the show that uses a simple, yet effective premise, which has allowed the show to go on as long as it has. Major props to them for their creativity and resourcefulness.
