This is Canadian satire at its best. Rick Mercer's writing is brilliant as always. The back stabbing antics of these television/movie executives kept me coming back for more. It has been likened to the Gary Shandling show, but I found this to be far more biting in its humor, and more universal (even though it was called Made in Canada, it could just have easily been about the film industry almost anywhere)
I loved this show and wanted to cry last year when it was cancelled. I hope that the other seasons do make it to DVD even though Salter Street Films is no longer. If I counted right there are 4 more seasons that are currently running in syndication on Bravo here in Canada.

One of the well done character driven comedies out there, this show offers a well-balanced taste of dark-comedy vs. satirical wit. My only complaint (as many have previously stated) is that the rest of this show is not already on DVD. I eagerly await that day.

Sharp witty comedy about self-centred people at a television show production company named Pyramid. Very smartly written, charcters you will love and love to hate as they work to stab each other in the back and to gain the approval of their boss (Alan Roy); a man who got his start in producing trashy soft porn flicks and thinks The Sting 2 was a great movie. Highly recomended

Truly one of the funniest shows ever. Sharp dialogue, hilariously outrageous yet realistic portrayal of the TV industry. When are the other seasons being released?!

I can watch these episodes over and over and over! Funny, smart (and true) every time. So sad the show didn't go on!

Great comedy! Too bad the other seasons aren't available. I have seen other seasons on VHS and the episodes after season one seem even more funny and polished to me. Hey CBC
are you listening?
Great service from the supplier. They even put a strip of bubble wrap inside the plastic cover to make sure the disc stays put during shipping.
Thanks for that ; attention to detail IS CUSTOMER SERVICE!
Item arrived on standard shipping within about 6 days.
Completely satisfied.

I eagerly have watched the episodes of this series when I can find where the local PBS affiliate has found to hide them. In the US the series is identified as "The Industry". I wanted to offer another review because I suspect if someone were to expect something like the Simpsons he might be confused or disappointed. If analogy is desired I would compare it with "Yes Minister" which offered an insider's comic view of another part of society (the interaction of elected officials with civil servants in the UK). Although willing to use slapstick humor I would suggest it provides more subtle humor in most cases. The actor who portrays the boss is just perfect. In this series it is TV production but he could be from any industry.
I was particularly pleased to see that there are now no fewer than five seasons in existence. I hope everyone who is interested buys this first season to encourage the producers to continue making them available.
