Surprised there was no thread for this yet.

"Beginning as a YouTube web series titled "Letterkenny Problems", Letterkenny revolves around the antics of the residents of a small rural Canadian community called Letterkenny.

Expanding the cast from the web series, the series focuses on Wayne and Katy (created for the TV series, though obliquely referenced earlier, unnamed), siblings who run a small farm and produce stand, with help from Wayne's two friends: Daryl and "Squirrely" Dan (created for the TV series). It also focuses on a pair of local hockey players (Reilly and Jonesy) who are involved in a polyamorous relationship with Katy.

Episodes deal with life in a small town, amongst different types of people: the farmers (the "hicks"wink, the out-of-towners who make up the local hockey team, the town's minister, the local drug addicts (the "skids"wink, and members of the local First Nation (the "natives"wink.

Often plots revolve around Wayne defending his reputation as "the toughest guy in Letterkenny", the exploits of the perennially losing local hockey team, Wayne's attempts to break up his sister's open relationship with two of the members of the team, schemes by "the skids" to rip off the residents of both Letterkenny and a nearby First Nations reserve, and Wayne's various attempts to find love after the breakup of his high school sweetheart relationship of five years.

In later seasons, the scripts feature wordplay and puns as a running joke to convey the intelligence of the small town characters."

I feel like I've watched almost all of this show solely through youtube clips. I can't recommend it enough.

It has some bad-ass moments and hilarious moments, and it'll keep your attention, but it never evolves past bad-ass fights, and fantastic wordplay.

Although they do say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

One of the funniest moments by far:

You just reminded me of Northern Exposure in a roundabout way.
That was a clever show for most of its run.
