Ooh, I dunno. Risky move employing a tall, muscular man to play a character described as... tall and muscular.

Was Tom Cruise not available?

If you haven't, get yourself a dose of good-old early 2000s sexism by watching Blue Mountain State, which is basically American Pie: The TV Show.

Has anyone been watching Schitt'$ Creek? We're into the last series now and it's an absolute joy.

It took me the best part of the first season to take to the characters, but found I warmed to them quickly soon after. It's an exquisite balance of pretty abrasive humour and boundless warmth. Eugene Levy is endlessly loveable, and Catherine Keen plays her hair off as a brilliant monster Moira.

Highly recommend.

We tried watching it last week but after two episodes I just couldn't bear any more of it. All the set up was there with the situation and characters but it forgot to actually be funny.

Fair enough. It is worth persevering with in my opinion, kicking off in S2 prob wouldn't do any harm. Though it sounds like I may have found it a touch funnier from the off than you did.

It was co-created by him and the actors who plays the father; who is his actual father IRL.

I gave it a go but I struggled. Both the kids I found entertaining but the parents just don't make me laugh. I don't think I've ever found Eugene Levy funny, which doesn't help.

I did all of series one and it never got above "all right" for me.

I found in later series they whittled away at the extraneous characters and made it more of a focus on the family, Stevie and the community as a foil and backdrop. Fair to say several more layers are found in the likes of Stevie and the family themselves.
