Product Description

Amazon.ca

Robson Arms is a Canadian Seinfeld-meets-Neighbours, with a little Three's Company thrown in for good wink-wink, nudge-nudge measure. The series follows the lives of the inhabitants of one particularly diverse residential building in Vancouver, British Columbia. The apartments themselves range from the Architectural Digest-ready bachelor pad of the snooty attorney to the barely livable hovel just inhabited by the single-mom nurse and her precocious son. (The nurse uses a far saltier term for the ratty apartment than "hovel," part of the charm of the series.) Each series focuses on a different inhabitant and his or her soapy love life, hidden agenda, and foibles, with just enough interaction to hold the viewer from week to week. A standout is young Justine Wong, who plays tween house "detective," Ruby. And the dialogue is entertainingly ribald; one young boy tosses off a line about his dad as "in Burnaby shacked up with jailbait." The extra bite makes Robson Arms wickedly addictive. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT SHOW Dec 10 2009
Format:DVD
This is a very humorous show that doesn't require a laugh track; we Canadians know when to laugh! There is quite a bit of drama, sexual and drug content, therefore, for adults and not children. If you want a show for children, there's plenty else out there. My favourite character is Sault Ste. Marie -- she's hilarious and doesn't suppress any of her negative feelings, e.g. sarcastic, jaded, and cynical. Very funny. If you're looking for a well written -- well acted show, then this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show Aug. 13 2011
Format:DVD
Was huge fan of Corner Gas so I went online and saw that Gabrielle Miller was in the cast. Liked the story lines but as with most good shows was canceled with out wrapping up issues. Networks should when canceling a show shoot one or two more episodes to wrap or things so loyal watchers will not be turned off. Still not happy with HBO for Deadwood and Carnival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Show June 14 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like this show with it mutifocused cast/story. A apartment is a unique ecosystem in itself. It can be funny, sad and tragic all at the same time. I generally get annoyed with the canadian recycled casting and for the most part if the actors were all that great they would end up on american tv where they can make some real money. That being said the casting for this show is really well done and everyone does a great job. Also in typical canadian fasion, good shows, shows with promise get cancelled while the other canadian crap with no potential, thought or any real heart stay on forever. Take a chance and watch this, I'm sure you will end up a bit jaded when you have seen them all and you realised canadian tv execs have failed us again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Open arms for "Robson Arms" Jan. 24 2008
By Richard E. T. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This series was a delightful surprise. I picked it up after enjoying a number of great Canadian TV programs(DA VINCI'S INQUEST, SLINGS AND ARROWS, INTELLIGENCE)because it featured Mark McKinney and John Cassini, whose work I had enjoyed in those shows. It's an anthology, really, akin to a really satisfying book of short stories. Each 22-minute episode is a character study that takes you into one apartment in the Robson Arms, so you gradually get to know the eccentric, wonderfully delineated denizens of the building. Unifying elements include Cassini's randy super Yuri, the fountain statue whose urinations are timed suspiciously well to the sexual activities in the building, and the on-camera musical musings of a folk duo who lurk about the premises. The tone of the episodes ranges from farcical to very touching, but there's a core of humanity to each of them that's just lovely. Just be aware: this isn't ABC Family Channel stuff: the language is pretty salty, the sexuality and drug use are frank.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it April 11 2008
By C. Odell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Being a fan of Corner Gas, I thought I would give Robson Arms a try. While described as a "dramedy" I imagined it to be closer to C.G or even Northern Exposure in style. It's not like either, with a darker look and feel. The stories are very well written with endings that leave you feeling good.
That aside, I did find myself enjoying the characters a great deal and find the humor subtle, which I enjoy. I have come to love this show and am buying season 2 and looking forward to future seasons.
Fine acting and writing make this worthwhile

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious March 24 2007
By Scott Goodale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Whenever I travel in Canada I catch this show. I've been checking periodically hoping it would come out on DVD and here it is! My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that I haven't actually watched each episode. If you want something laugh out loud funny, with a sexual twist here and there, give this show a chance! And for those of you that long to spend more time in Canada than is feasible, the show may help take a little edge off the longing of wanting to be north of the border.

Leslie Nielsen was an unexpected and awesome addition to the already thoughtful cast of characters. This series continues to please.

4.0 out of 5 stars Robson Arms Jan. 26 2012
By Karen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With the Discovery of Corner Gas I was looking for something else new to try. This shows subject matter was a little harsh at first but I stuck with it and still interesting to watch. Not for kids at all though. The stories are very good and seem real. I have plans on buying Season Two.
