Have you ever seen the show “Trailer Park Boys”? OMG it’s a show about Canadian rednecks. My husband LOVES this show.
I think it’s funny, but I’m not a huge fan.
It’s about all these men that live in a trailer park in Nova Scotia. Yes women live in the trailer park too but the show centers around about five main characters. Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, Mr. Lehey and Randy.
Randy and Lehey are sometimes lovers and almost always drunk. They are always plotting to catch Ricky, Julian and Bubbles in a criminal act, but it always ends up getting messed up. Usually because Lehey, a cop who lost his job because he was drunk, is always too boozed up to get anything done right.
Meanwhile the three guys Ricky, Bubbles and Julian really are always planning illegal activities like growing pot, stealing things from people and reselling them to people in the trailer park and so on.
In the latest episodes … Bubbles went to Maine to see a model train show and ended up stealing Patrick Swayzes model train. The guys come up with a plan to piece the track together through a small tunnel that runs under a river between the US and Canadian border. The plan is to send dope across the boarder to the US and Sebastian Bach of Skid Row made a deal with them to send cigarettes over to the boys in exchange for the drugs.
The episode that we’re watching tonight has the guys being caught by both the American and Canadian authorities. They boys were in the middle of the river trying to decide which jail to go to. They decided to go to the US jail so they turned themselves in to the US authorities.
It’s a crazy show. I have a feeling that it’s got a US cult following just like our other very silly Canadian series – The Red Green Show.
So who knows what I’m talking about? Check out the Trailer Park Boys website. I think there’s some clips of the show on the site. You’ll have an idea of how strange and funny this show is if you watch a video.
