I love this series: it's funny, it's serious, it's insightful, with fantastic acting all round, even the minor characters are well-developed. And, although the story centers on the dramas that go on behind the scenes of a theatre company, I think it really touches on more than just that: the foibles of human relationships in general, in all their varied forms. The writers have a deft touch: they knew exactly how much to exaggerate the characters so that they are funny and yet still convincingly convey their deeply flawed and complex humanity. And, along the way I also learned something about Hamlet, Macbeth and King Lear!

Format: DVD
Ever been to Stratford in Canada, a town that specializes in Shakespearean plays (among others) year-round? Well, I have -- and I have new appreciation for the thespians and managers who manage to keep those venerable theatres running, if they have to deal with half the stuff that goes on in "Slings and Arrows: The Complete Series." It's a subtle, hilarious comedy with death, romance, ghosts and corporate idiocy.

As the story starts, artistic director Oliver Welles (Stephen Ouimette) is run over by a pig truck after drunkenly falling asleep in the road. His replacement: former protege and genius iconoclast Geoffrey Tennant (Paul Gross), whose acting career ended in a nervous breakdown onstage. Unsurprisingly, the acting troupe -- including Geoffrey's ex-lover Ellen Fanshaw (Martha Burns) -- are wary of of Geoffrey's brilliant but erratic behavior.

And Geoffrey isn't too sure of himself, since he seems to be seeing Oliver's ghost trying to guide him from beyond the grave (and causing Geoffrey to start screaming at thin air). Now he has to not only produce "Hamlet" (ironic, no?), but deal with Ellen's cougar romances, avant-garde director Darren Nichols, and an omnivorous American businesswoman trying to turn New Burbage into a shallow theatrical theme park. Will the show go on, or is this "Hamlet" doomed?

The second season sees Geoffrey being forced to put on "Macbeth," and the curse begins to affect the theater right away. The "Romeo and Juliet" director falls off the stage and breaks her neck, putting the production in Darren Nichols' hands; an edgy new ad campaign alienates EVERYBODY; Ellen is being audited; and Oliver's ghost returns to help Geoffrey put on "Macbeth" as he dreamed it.

I have to say, I have not laughed so hard in ages! This series is an absolutely hilarious portrayal of the extreme characters involved with the stage, full of witty dialogue and plenty of sly in-jokes for anyone who is the least bit acquainted with the real-life Stratford festival.

However, to call this series simply a comedy does not do it justice. It is full of heart, especially in developing the many relationships, and the way the character of Geoffrey Tennant grows and struggles over three seasons. On top of all of this, the love and passion the characters have for Shakespeare will inspire you to revisit these classics and rediscover them for yourself.

Exceptional acting all around, though Paul Gross deserves special mention for making the haunted/manic/goofy Geoffrey so appealing that your heart just bleeds for him with every misfortune he has to endure. I can't recommend this series enough!

This series was recommended to me by an actor in our Community Theatre production. I power watched it once and plan to watch it again and again. Brilliant take on all of the background of running of theatre productions. Catherine Fitch as The Stage Manager is fabulous. I've "channeled" her during our last show to carry me through.

Good story line, lots of character development, excellent acting, appropriate ending.
Has you laughing one minute and crying the next.
Disappointing extra disc doesn't give anything extra.

As a Shakespearean actor, I could not be more delighted with this series. It should be required viewing for any actor wanting to take on the "Scottish play".

If you enjoy any theatre, this gives a great inside look. It is hilarious and the acting is a high calibre. You want to keep watching until the end of season three and then you are sad that there is not more.
