This is a great Canadian comedy series. The movie tells of how the stars Jean Paul Tremblay-(Julian) and the head writer of the show and his buddies Rickie and Bubbles play it over the top in what is a true life satirical look at trailer parks and the denizens of said trashy hoods. The movie will tell you why Rickie and Julian begin doing their more advanced forays into the world of crime. WHY and the reasons behind everything would be a spoiler so I shall not give the real reasons behind their more brilliant escapades. Their friend and oft-time partner(Bubbles) is a brilliant character. The whole show is brilliant and missing the movie will not affect the way you see the sit-com one bit. It is a comedy with a capital C and a brilliant satire on trailer park living and small time crooks with small time ideas but big time dreams. If you ever have the opportunity to watch--buy--steal this program grab it. You will be glad you did. And to my American friends---It will break you up also. 10 out of 9. Brilliant. TV how TV should be.
This wildly popular show has come to be considered by many to be the pinnacle of Canadian comedy. Filled with quintessentially Canadian humor and storylines, Trailer Park Boys, a show about "big plans, little brains," is brilliant homegrown satire. It will undoubtedly have an influence on Canadian TV in the years to come.

As unique as the inhabitants are, TPB never beats the old "fish out of water" mule as there's nothing hackneyed about this series; the characters barely fit in amoungst themselves but are certainly their funniest interacting with the non-trailer park world.
Paraphrasing season 3:
Bubbles (in a scolding hush): "Ricky, you can't shout 'dope' in a bank!'"
Ricky (proudly, out of jail about 20 minutes and still in his numbered orange jumpsuit): "Sure I can Bubbles, I'm rich as f*** now. Dopity-dope-dope."
How many people do you know that've been tossed from a bank?
Or get arrested at their wedding before kissing the bride?
The scripts never force or focus on nonconformity, become self-conscious or betray their characters, like "Jackass", or most US shows that substitute overemphasis and preachiness for lack of talent or perspective. TPB never goes through the tedium of lecturing on societal ills, as there's too much of that out there and we all see it anyway. They're too busy exploiting it: crime, alcoholism and drug usage, in which almost every episode owes, never get lionized but remain weaknesses to leverage, deal with or circumvent.Read more ›
Julian is an ex-con who calls Sunnyvale Trailer Park in Nova Scotia home. A camera crew will be following Julian around, to document his life outside of jail and what living in a trailer park means. The POV is that of a documentary. Julian is determined to stay straight and not go back behind bars. His best friend Ricky, however, doesn't seem to have that commitment to the straight life.
In the first couple episodes, Bubbles (arguably the funniest and most lovable of the boys) isn't a main character. Obviously, Mike Clattenberg and Co. realized Bubbles' potential partway through the first season and begin writing him bigger parts. Also introduced in this season are Lahey and Randy, the trailer park supervisor and his assistant, who are not quite as drunk and stoned as they will get later on. Lucy and Sarah are here, not quite the adversaries to Ricky and Julian that they will become. Corey and Trevor are sidekicks (aka "jail cover") and J-Roc and his Roc Pile make their debut. Characters introduced that are later forgotten include Levi, and Mrs. Peterson (who is like a grandmother to Julian). Cyrus also makes his debut in the first episode.
Ricky and Julian return from jail to find the park has changed -- Cyrus has taken over. They must get rid of Cyrus without going back to jail. In the meantime, Julian wants to go straight and head to community college, and that means Ricky is persona non grata around him.Read more ›
As soon as the fourth season had finished we came on here and bought all the dvd's as you cannot get them in England as it is only shown on sky tv channel paramount. Then paramount repeated all 4 series again and we were hooked every night. It has just finished showing again and we are having withdrawl symptoms!! Our dvd's should be here soon and the sooner the better!! The best episodes were 'mans gotta eat' where randy returns to the streets as smokey to fund his cheeseburger habit, and 'propane, propane' where Mr. Layhey looses it and tries to kill ricky. Everybody should watch trailer park boys as it is so funny but it does take a few episodes to really get into it. We are busy converting everybody we know into TPB addicts and as soon as our dvd's get here we are locking all our friends in our front room and watching all of them on our 42' wide screen tv. No one is leaving until they are hooked too!!! BUY THEM ALL!!!

Only goes to show that the public has reached an all-time low in their taste in T.V. shows. Cheech n Chong was funny, Beavis and Butthead was funny.... Read morePublished on Nov. 10 2004 by Diane Lindenberger
If I could, I would give this show 0 stars. I watched seasons one and two and I can not believe how "high school" this entire series is. From the camera work to the bad acting. Read morePublished on Aug. 19 2004
