O.M.G!! I have not laughed this hard since Trailer Park Boys came out in 2001. I want to say a few things about it but I'll put it behind a cut because it's all going to be spoilers... Big ones!! I would hate to ruin those moments for anyone so please just don't click if you haven't seen it and intend to. :)



Okay, so in the first three seasons, my favourites were Ron (it's like seeing Scott onscreen *LOL*), Leslie (she's so pure and so sweet, I adore her) and Donna (Donna is such an underrated gem), BUT THEN I met Jean-Ralphio!! HE KILLS ME. I've been acting like him and doing shit like this

to Scott constantly and I think he's gonna lose it soon *LOL*. I feel so badly for him...but I can't stop!!! ;)

And then when you meet MONA LISA. I thought I was literally going to die from laughing. I looked it up and they're both comedians in their own right so at least I don't feel so dumb for thinking they're so funny. I mean they're both insufferable people that you could never be friends with in real life, but I can't get enough of them as characters. And one thing you HAVE to give Jean-Ralphio? He's got the best attitude EVER. You can't get to him. He loses 400K and isn't even shook about it. Just rolls off his back and goes on!

One thing that's really surprised me is how sweet it is sometimes. I've cried a few times now and I did not see that coming.

Examples off the top of my head:

- When Ron thinks Leslie is throwing him a godawful surprise party...and she opens that door and it's just steak and whiskey, for one. "Happy Birthday, Ron..." and she leaves. TEARS!

- When they go to London and she sends him on that little day trip? Omg. I was a wreck!

- Ron finding out that April has known his secret the WHOLE time, and never breathed a word about it. She is so his Spirit Daughter ♥

- When Leslie decides not to make a hateful, negative ad campaign ad, and they go with that video of her at 10 years old instead? Oh man, pass the tissues plz.

And lots more that I can't recall right now! We're on episode 5 of season 6, by the way, so please don't tell me anything that happens past that :)

It's just a surprisingly wonderful show and I'm glad I'm finally seeing it. ^-^
