TGIF Canada Day Special: Trailer Park Boys

Ricky provides what is probably the best cold open of the entire series

Trailer Park Boys may be the funniest show to come out of Canada, and maybe even the most innovative. It, along with Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, was one of the first improvised comedy series (a story outline with ad-libbed dialogue rather than a script). Thanks to this innovation, situation comedy has changed for the better over the last decade — made smarter, more daring, more naturalistic — and the trend promises to get stronger.

On a Friday that’s also Canada Day, we deserve no less than the best.
