With Letterkenny being moved to hulu and my excitement for that at an all time high, I felt that I should finally review it… Letterkenny is about a small town in Ontario Canada and follows Wayne, his friends, and all the other members of the town and the things they get up to.
I struggle to find a good way to describe this show. It has a near sketch comedy nature of story-telling. Jumping between different groups of characters (hicks, skids, and hockey players) during funny moments, yet also has enclosed stories in a broader arc. Letterkenny is carried on the back of its main character, Wayne, played by Jared Keeso who also created the show and basically wrote the whole damn thing. Keeso has stated that he wanted to make a show the truly showed what it was like to live in a close knit and fucked up small town, basing the show off of his very own home town in Canada.
This show is outrageously funny while having surprising character moments and sucking you in to their lives while you just think you are laughing at their antics. I can’t recommend it enough.
