I stumbled onto it a couple of days ago and I’ve been binging ever since. It’s available to stream on Amazon Prime.
It’s quirky ensemble comedy set in a nowhere town in Saskatchewan called Dog River. Guy owns a gas station that rents videos. His coworker is a slightly cynical grammar maven. Cute girl inherits cafe next door. Goofy best friend, cranky dad, long-suffering mom. Two cops, male and female. The flavor of it is kind of a combination of Seinfeld and Taxi, with hints of Northern Exposure.
I’ve been watching tons of cop/crime/murder shows recently when I’m not reading the news, and this show is a welcome break from both. Even though it’s as far from Jewish-urban as you can get, it’s like Seinfeld, because it’s about nothing. It’s light, witty, a little wacky, and not the least bit topical or timely. It’s balm for the battered mind.
This is season 1/episode 1:
