“A wealthy video store magnate, and his wife, a formerly successful soap star lose their fortune when their business manager fails to pay their taxes. They are forced to rebuild their lives with their sole remaining asset: a small town named Schitt’s Creek which they had bought their son as a joke birthday gift years before“
This is one of my favourite shows at the moment. Currently on Season 5 and I think the episodes are getting even better. I love all the characters for different reasons but my favourite has to be Moira played by the awesome Catherine O’Hara. Although I loved her in Home Alone and Beetlejuice, for me, this is her best role!
I also love the family connection. Daniel Levy plays David brilliantly and does an amazing job of writing the episodes too. His dad in real life, Eugene Levy is probably best known for his role in the American Pie films as Jim’s Dad but again for me his role as the Dad in Schitt’s Creek is his best role!
There’s a great mix of songs in the show – some classics and some modern. One of the latest songs featured in Season 4 is ‘Adore‘ by Amy Stark and I love it.
There isn’t a theme song as such but if there was then I think that ‘Alvvays‘ by Party Police should be it.
There’s also a great cover of ‘Simply The Best’ in Season 4 by Noah Reid (Patrick) that is awesome!
This is quickly followed by David doing of the best Tina Turner lip-syncs I have ever seen.
