I've watched all 3 seasons of TPB on DVD and I am convinced that the shows are beyond brilliant. One has to get past viewing the shows at "face value". It's a hysterical spoof of Canadian white trash culture. An exaggerated examination of a sub-class' preference for certain food, drink and "smokes". Overall lifestyle choices of "what-do-we-have-to-do-to-get-by". Or short-cuts-via-crisis-management . . trailer park style.
In season 3, the scene of Bubbles playing and singing "Closer to the Heart" with Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson resulted in such side-splitting laughter that I literally fell off my seat. Bubbles also appears on the jumbo-tron during a live concert. The same goes for the scene where Lifeson gives the perpetually shirtless Randy a T-shirt to put on and he refuses, Bubbles enters the scene and states "Listen Randy, if somebody like Alex Lifeson gives you a f***ing t-shirt to put on, you put it on". The entire episode is hysterical beyond words. It must be seen!
The shows are tightly written with poignant euphemisms, juxapositions of scenes that display total disgard to rules and regulations of society. The Trailer Park Boys are true Anti-Heroes. With many bits of Canadiana mixed in, one of the best scenes is Ricky living in his car or "cur" - Maritime style, watching the great Canadian classic TV show "The Littlest Hobo" - Go Canada . . . all the way to the Park! This DVD series is NOT TO BE MISSED! Also, the many extras, deleted scenes and outtakes included in the DVDs are fabulous as well.
