On the surface, there’s not all that much to say about Long Bay. It’s small town, much like any one of a thousand other small towns that dot the country – the corner doughnut shop, the struggling economy, the small manufacturers, the crazy characters … and the local five-sheet curling club with carpet from the forties and greasy fish & chips.
But you can’t judge a book by its cover, and you can’t judge Long Bay by its surface. Men With Brooms picks up the ongoing story of Long Bay through the adventures and misadventures of four careworn young men brought together by a love of “shuffleboard-on-ice.” And while not great curlers, they’re frequent curlers – and what they lack in skill they make up for in enthusiasm.

I am not usually someone who laughs out loud easily or often, but this series found my funny bone on several occasions (the "stop pistol-whipping your father" line really cracked me up!). The writing just seemed to improve with each episode and by the end I really wanted more (season 2 on DVD soon PLEASE!). Quirky characters, memorably lines, really funny gags, and, I have to say, a VERY good looking cast of ladies (hey, I do notice these things) lead by the ravishng Aliyah O'Brien (who's as funny as she is beautiful) and Glenda Braganza would have made this series worth watching even if it had been a dud in the comedy department, which it definately is not.
If you get a chance watch this series in conjunction (there's that word again) with the Men With Brooms movie! Another funny little Canadian treat, though not nearly as funny as this series. And hey! Paul Gross, the star of the film, also appears in the series now and again (in every singleepisode in fact, if you coundt his voice). Check this one out.
Good quality DVD albeit without many extras, but the webisodes (animated short stories) are well worth watching.
Highly recommended for people who like Corner Gas.
