Kids in the Hall cast, now older, but still funny as hell, decided to do a "mini-series". Eight half-hour episodes. Serialised story (not sketch-oriented), slightly dark comedy. Very much Kids in the Hall style though, with the guys playing all the major roles. I think it's great.
Marathon tomorrow (Sun 9/12) on IFC, starting at something like 9:00AM or noon ... depending on what feed you get. DVR it if you can.

I watched the CBC version shortly after it - ahem - became available to me somehow, and thought it was pretty good! Kim was worried that they would look all old and stuff, which I think sufficiently lowered her expectations such that SHE really enjoyed it as well (and she's the big KitH fan in this house). So....there you have it.

Boy, I enjoyed it a lot. The mystery itself kind of peters out (though I found the solution satisfying), but there are just so many funny bits throughout.
* The kindly town abortionist * The mayor 'reading the video will' * The news team's intro playing over and over, plus their special intro for somber news * The near-total wrongness of Scott's town coroner character

I saw this and... it was okay. It beat my expectations but it still was a far cry from their original sketch comedy show. Worth seeing the once, but I didn't buy the DVD and I doubt I ever will unless I get really hung up on completing my KitH collection.
