a dry biting satire
12 January 2001 | by tovachanahSee all my reviews

Made in Canada isn't a knee=slapping sitcom; its ironic biting satire.

Not just of office politics, but of the entertainment industry, canada, and human relationships and perceptions etc. rick mercer has a fine eye for distilling the esscence of human insanity into a half-hour form (or is it 22 minutes??) everyone knows an 'alan': the take credit for it but i'm not going to work boss. victor: the spineless syncophant; richard: the aggradizing, self-promoting jerk; veronica: the one who does all the work and gets none of the credit and wanda: the "radar o'reilley" of the office who holds it all together. i even like the 'beaver creek'(aka 'little house on the prairie' etc) send-ups of bloated tv series and even more bloated star egos.

hollywood should take a look at canadian tv. these shows are character driven and entertaining and don't insult my intellegence

now why can't hollywood do this???
