Its an awesome show. I got the Dvd box set series 1-6 a month ago for only about 35 online. Well worth it for 11 discs and some 50 odd episodes.

Thanks for a quick reply

I may have to invest in them then.

But I buy TV series' on DVD then never watch them.

It's possibly my favourite programme, it's outstanding. Discovered it quite by chance on Paramount about three or four years ago when they scheduled it after South Park. I got the DVDs on R1 before they got a belated release here but it looks like lately it's been shunted off Paramount's schedules, or at best relegated to later slots.

Boys who live in a Trailer Park

The Office style fake docu with no laughter track following redneck petty criminals.

I think just about all episodes have been shown at one point but it has bounced around the channels. Paramount, Bravo, FX and even Men&Motors have shown them.

There has been 7 seasons, 1 movie and 1 special with a 2nd movie in the pipe line. I always though Channel 4 would have been the better tv channel for the show.

Actually, a second one-hour special aired in Canada on December 7 of last year, "Trailer Park Boys: Say Goodbye To The Bad Guys."

Indeed. It really should be better known in Britain.

The Bubbles and Conky episode is a classic. Though I can't remember what series it was in.

And Randy's stomach is a thing of nightmares

There are so many things about this series that are brilliant I could write a list a mile long.

I would just recommend buying the box set.

I'm off to find the boxset now. Thanks OP!

My boyfriend got me the boxset for Christmas, so I've been holed up watching it since

It's pure genius, and very underrated.

Indeed. Very very good.

Vastly superior to much of the crap churned out here over the last few years, and on a much smaller budget too.

20 for the first 6 seasons on Amazon is an absolute steal.

Watched a couple of episodes, didn't like it. Sorry, but Canadians make really unconvincing low-life rednecks.

You don't seem to know what a redneck is. And Trailer Park Boys is so true to the reality of a certain type of impoverished, dope-smoking Canadian the show could be mistaken for a documentary, with only the gun-play failing to ring true. Hell, I've KNOWN people like the two main characters, Ricky and Julian.

Sorry, but we all grow up with certain stereotypical views: the Italians are noisy, Americans are a bit hysterical and Canadians are, well, Donald Sutherland - sober and serious, and not at all likely to spend all day making crystal meth and having sex with farm animals.

It took me 3 or 4 episodes to get hooked and now I've seen all the series and the films too. Such a great show.

Firstly, my apologies for bumping an old thread, but sometimes people get in a twist over creating a new thread where one already existed.

Just wanted to say I was a bit late to the game, I just finished the series on Netflix and I loved it.

Some favorite moments:

Bubbles and Conky
Julian and his drink, even when he gets tazed
Ray and the piss jugs
Ricky getting shot
Lahey's and Ricky's cars, good god
Ricky in court
Bubbles and his kitties

Regarding a previous poster saying he didn't think they were realistic portrayals, I would just say that I spent a few years living in Nova Scotia and they are indeed accurate. Except the gun stuff.
