Trailer Park Boys is a canadian based TV show, which is probably one of the funniest things ever produced in TV history. It started out as more or less a joke. The production team had to pitch this script to investors , can you imagine how you could even attempt such a thing while keeping a straight face? Imagine how ridiculous this script must sound on paper with someone reading it in mono tone across to a board of directors.
After this first season, Trailer Park Boys went on to make 3 full scale movies and 7 seasons total. An amazing success for the small amount of money it actually took to produce. The characters are flawless in their roles and Trailer Park Boys Season 1 cements the cast into TV legend.
