Anyone who gets the Showcase channel should watch Trailer Park Boys on Sunday night. It's the story of two guys, Julian and Ricky, who live in a trailer park and spend their time holding up convenience stores and growing pot whenever they aren't in jail. Their latest goal is "Freedom 35" a retirement plan based on selling hash to prison guards. When the series ended for this year, they are back in jail. One of their buddies named Bubbles has survived for about 15 years by stealing shopping carts from one supermarket, throwing them down a ravine, and then repairing them and selling them to another store. They continually outsmart the trailer park manager and his assistant, who recently received a promotion to weekend trailer park manager. Don't miss it; the dialogue is outstanding and no description can do it justice.
