Schitt's Creek

I just marathon watched this show over the past 7 days. I initially watched the first episode or two and was bored with it. I largely ignored it.

My cousin insisted I simply, "have to watch it." She constrains efforts to watch the last two episodes because she doesn't want it to end. I relayed to mine kinswoman that since I'm in process of a new counterpane, I decided to setup my larger electronic viewing device in the immediately vicinity of my sewing machine, and partake from the televised frivolities. Once I achieved proportionate viewing to hers (she had stopped at season 6, episode 12; there are 14 episodes), that we would optically devour the remaining feast of installments betwixt ourselves.

What a fun show! A lot of great full circle moments, character growth, deliciously cute guys, Moira's vocabulary is a stand-out. It came came about thru O'Hara's makeup or hair person showing her Foyle's Philavery - A Treasury of Unusual Words and Mrs Byrne's Dictionary; so O'Hara put a lot of that language into her character.

I Facetime's my cousin today and told her, "I know something you don't know."

"What's that?"

"How Schitt's Creek ended."

"You finished it?!"

Yes, bitch. I did!

Have you seen it? What did you love about it?

I just saw the first few episodes and one later one and wasn’t nuts about it, but have also heard it gets better so I may watch all the episodes at one point during the holidays

Haven't finished season 6. I have the same problem when shows i love go away. I need to draw them out. I see there's something else for 44mins I'm guessing the cast saying goodbye.

Yes, I have praised this show highly on the tv thread in the past. Here are a few things that I really liked about it:

--It is rare that a show with characters that are so over the top eventually become fleshed out and likeable.

--I would always brighten my mood and outlook after a binge.

--There would be at least one major belly laugh each show.

--The development of such a sweet gay relationship as a centerpiece.

--It makes you really miss it after you are finished with the series cry

Never heard of this show until recently. I guess it's in syndication now and my local tv station is playing it now. Pretty funny

It's on Netflix & IMDBTV uncensored, and CW Seed and syndication censored. I'd recomment one of the former options, not the latter. Not heavy in cursing, but who wants to hear a beeped out word?!

I'm sure y'all can tell that 2nd paragraph is my nod to Moira Rose.

I've watched this show right from the beginning because it's Canadian and so am I. Very funny show and the cast is awesome. I was sorry to see it end.

Did you make it to the 3rd season. It gets better as the series proceeds, and it seems that the third and fourth season seems to take steps in further character development to make them seem more like real people.
