Trailer Park Boys: The Complete Third Season

Trailer Park Boys: The Complete Third Season
Now that the third season of pseudo-doc Trailer Park Boys is upon us, we're no longer shocked by the dope-dealing drunks and fuck ups that populate this Maritime community, where swearwords are merely the links that connect their thoughts. (If their distracted ramblings can be considered thoughts.) And once again, season three opens in familiar fashion with Julian (John Paul Tremblay) and Ricky (Robb Wells) getting out of jail, brainstorming on how they can get some cash and not end up in jail at the end of this instalment. Once again, their schemes and dreams are derailed by sheer stupidity. Trailer Park Boys is in some danger of entrenching itself in a predictable cycle of incompetence, but the utter commitment of its acting team and the shortened (eight-episode) season help it breeze along before you mind that you've seen it all before. Season three in particular focuses on Ricky and his attempts to get out from under the thumb of the smarter and more focused Julian. He gets his business going stealing and refurbishing barbeques, and kidnapping Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson. Meanwhile, is it possible that the relationship between Park Supervisor Jim Lahey (John Dunsworth) and Randy (Patrick Roach) is actually getting healthier and more functional? It's a scary world when shack-dwelling, kitty-cat caring Bubbles (Mike Smith) is the most together one on the show. In terms of home viewing, most of the content on this two-disc set revolves around cutting room floor material that shows how tightly put together this show is some truly hilarious stuff doesn't make the cut each week, but the extended or alternate takes are only for the truly geeky Park lover. This is Canadian content brought to you old school the world of April Wine and Helix, not the big city stuff the CBC tries to foist upon us. (Alliance Atlantis)
