Sometimes you just have to do something because of the hype. That was me recently when I started the series Schitt’s Creek. I remember last fall and into this year the show seemingly winning every award imaginable. So I started it a few weeks ago.
The show follows the Rose family, who has lost their entire family fortune that had grown into hundreds of millions of dollars. As a result they’re forced to relocate to a rural town they bought as a joke many years before.
I always go into new shows with an open mind. Though some I just can’t get behind. This was one of the greats. From just about the very beginning the show depicts LGBT characters as just regular people like everyone else. I can’t recall a moment during the show when I felt like someone was trying to teach me something or trying to lecture me about how I should feel about the community. This made it more genuine, in my opinion.
The Roses are not meant to be ordinary people. But the creators managed to really show growth from all of the main characters season after season. They’re different people in episode 80 than they were in episode one. For these and many more reasons, it’s a must watch and can be streamed on Netflix and Prime Video.
