Laughed so hard I cried!
My family and I were excited to watch this show as we do enjoy the unique humour of our beloved country. The first episode was funny but did not grab me. The second episode?!?! Well that was an entirely different story. While I too am 'from away' (the dreaded Ontario), I have been to Cavendish and happily admit that I bought into the entire 'Anne' experience. About ten minutes into episode two, we had to pause the show as we were laughing so hard that we were crying. Several pauses, snorts, tears and welll...almost inciontinence left us all howling with laughter. The words, 'stop - I can't take it!' roared from our mouths. Bravo to all involved in making this great home-grown entertainment. For the haters....come on, really? If we can't laugh at ourselves then what is the point. We live in a magnificent country with wonderful, diverse regional idiosyncrasies be they accurately portrayed or not. Embrace the humour. Look at Bob and Doug Mackenzie - iconic Canadian humour. Do we take offence?
Cavendish - keep up the great work. My family can't wait for episode three!!
