This is one of the best Canadian made shows since Degrassi. It is produced the same day that it airs, if you look at the newspaper they are reading it is from that day. It is both a very funny,and dramatic show. The character Johnny alone is worth watching. Some people complain about the production values, but I think it fits what they are going for perfected. It is half scripted and half ad-libbed and that makes the show have a sense of realism. The characters are easy to get attached to, and if you watch just a couple of episodes, you'll be hooked just like I was.
