WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Brooks Laich of the Washington Capitals has a few go-to TV shows stored on his computer, in the event he’s ever trapped on a runway or a long flight en route to the Caps next stop on the NHL schedule.
Of those shows are few surprises. For instance, he’s been catching up on “The Entourage” and The Office, as of late.
But there is one show he named Wednesday, in his weekly hit with the Junkies on 106.7 The Fan, that perhaps isn’t quite as familiar to American audiences.
“What’s your go-to when you’re stuck on a flight?” JP asked Laich.
“Actually on my computer I’ve got all the seasons of The Entourage, all the seasons of The Office, and all the seasons of Trailer Park Boys, which I don’t know if you guys have seen, but you guys should watch that,” Laich said.
“Is that like a Canadian thing? None of us have heard of Trailer Park Boys,” Cakes bullied.
“Oh man, look up some highlights,” Laich said. “Look up Ricky on YouTube from Trailer Park Boys, and Bubbles. You might recognize Bubbles.”
After making a few calls (IMDB, Wikipedia) I was able to place Trailer Park Boys as a Canadian television show, the first seven seasons of which aired on Ontario-based television network, Showcase, and the most recent on SwearNet.com, the self-described “semi-functional dysfunctional network from the stars of Trailer Park Boys!!”
Trailer Park Boys is a Canadian comedy mockumentary television series created and directed by Mike Clattenburg that focuses on the misadventures of a group of trailer park residents, some of whom are ex-convicts, living in the fictional Sunnyvale Trailer Park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
