Schitt’s Creek sucks

There. I said it. I am on the LAST episode. I can’t bring myself to finish it. Dragged myself to nearly the finish line, waiting for something interesting to happen. It never did.

Why would you watch episodes of a show you don't like?

Thank you, OP. I watched it after reading the rave reviews here. I kept going through the start of season 2 when I gave up. It is contrived and tiresome. Every damn actor delivers every line in the same sing-song voice. There's no character development. The same lines come out of every character's mouth. I hated it so much!

I thought the last season was especially contrived in terms of character development. The Roses are supposed to have found the true meaning of community and family, but apparently they found it not over a steady progression of the previous 5 seasons, but suddenly in the first 3 episodes of season 6. Moira's character's comedic strength was her aloofness and suddenly she's pontificating on relationships and getting glassy-eyed. And puddle-deep Alexis discovers empathy. And Stevie finds her inner strength. It was just ham-handedly sudden, the writers suddenly imposing gravity on the characters.

You hate the show, but somehow made it to the last episode of the final season? Yeah, you must have really hated it a lot. Stop trying to be edgy and rail against something millions of people love. The show is a delight, the actors are all wonderful, the writing is sharp, and it has tons of heart. It's exactly what we've needed since Trump took office and I'm happy it exists.

The only downside is Chris Elliot who I find repulsive in this.

by Anonymousreply 9November 21, 2020 1:20 AM

Compare it to Newhart, another show about eccentric characters in a rural setting. Newhart had interesting characters and scenarios. Schitt's Creek is the same thing, week after week, and it's impossible to distinguish between the characters. It's the kind of show that makes we wary of reviews and recommendations.

Well before Netflix, I pushed myself to watch it on Pop TV. Made it through the first two seasons, but found it too shrill to invest in any further. After it became a hit on Netflix, I picked up where I left off. It has its moments, but I, too, agree with those who are mystified by its seemingly almost universal acclaim.

I just watched the last episodes of the final season earlier today. It's a feel-good show and refreshingly lowkey in many ways. It's not perfect but it's well-written with likeable characters. The actors are pretty much spot on and the world building is almost flawless.

Even though I loved watching the show I do agree that it's a bit of an acquired taste. I tried to start watching it already years ago but had to stop after like two episodes. I returned recently, after their big Emmy win, and binged all seasons in a couple of months but even now I had weeks long pauses between episodes a couple of times because I just didn't feel like going back there. But when I returned I usually ended up watching multiple episodes in a row because I loved what I was seeing.

I'm sure many gay men are totally in love with Patrick Brewer. He's the super nice normal-guy-prince many of us neurotic and cunty Davids are dreaming of.

BTW, OP, you watched 79 episodes and then on the 80th stopped watching? You have issues. Are you a David?

by Anonymousreply 22November 21, 2020 1:49 AM

A relative with whom I normally share the same tastes told me I had to watch it. I made it to the middle of S1E5 and had to stop. I love Levy and O'Hara in all the Christopher Guest mockumentaries. I'm just amazed at all those Emmy awards for something so underwhelming.

I had watched the first season of The Boys waiting to like it, but it never happened, so I was determined not to make that mistake ever again. I knew I would hate Schitt's Creek after watching the first episode, so I didn't watch any others. I hate humor that is based in characters' misery, and that was a large part of why I gave up so easily.

I don't know, I really enjoyed it. But I can definitely see why some wouldn't. There were definitely some eye rolling moments and some of it was predictable. My only real complaint is I wish they did more flashbacks to their time as a wealthy family. I think that would have made their growth throughout the run of the show more meaningful and apparent. Plus, the few flashbacks they did show were always great, could have used more.

I really enjoyed the show but I was really turned off by David and Patrick's relationship. Maybe it's because of the undertone of gloom from this year (started watching during the pandemic). Watching a Hallmark style relationship blossom out of a Podunk town almost makes me want to gag.

By the finale the show became all about their relationship with little, lovely written, side adventures for the rest of the cast. My feelings aside it was still beautiful and funny. I just wasn't in the right headspace for "happy ever after".

Could be reading too much into it but I'm a gay man and sometimes it feels like media representation falls into tropes or apologies so the normie straights aren't offended.

Whatever. I'd try the show again because it has been awhile and I didn't give it a proper chance.

i'm still not clear on why he chose to make the character pansexual instead of gay. it's only in that first season. the rest of the series he's with men.

maybe had to do with his own insecurities? or was trying to challenge the assumption that everyone would make that the character was gay based on his affect and mannerisms? strange because even if everyone made that assumption - who cares? own it?

I know they intend to develop the characters. But the lines are interchangeable-- any character could deliver any other character's lines and it would be the same show.

Zero sympathy for anyone who has the nerve to complain after sitting through 80 episodes. You're an insane person with too much time on your hands and poor viewing skills.

Sometimes, entire first seasons can be skipped (The Office, 30 Rock) and some other great shows take a few episodes to get the ball rolling (Succession). Some series you can enjoy a few select seasons on their own (The first 3 seasons of Weeds and Homeland told contained stories, then branched out in a spinoff type fashion).

It’s always a red flag when fraus go WILD for a gay couple. Fraus are obsessed with Dan Levy and with David/Patrick. Dan Levy because he’s built like a fat hairy straight type but is soooo in touch with his emotions and David/Patrick because they are madly in love and never argue and never allude to fucking - just kiss chastely and sleep side by side. Also Patrick presents as straight which is always a comfort to the fraus. It’s like one is the man and one is the woman.

FWIW, I actually loved the show.

Schitt's Creek is surrealist humor which is an acquired taste. I'm going to get in trouble saying this...I am American, my husband is Canadian we live in Toronto and this show is totally feel like "Canadian humor" which I don't think translates as well in America because frankly Americans aren't good with surrealist humor (it's a reason why shows like 30 Rock were moderate successes in the US but huge abroad). I find the show "meh" but my husband and his friends LOVE it. It's enjoyable and largely because of Catherine O'Hara and the daughter character.

Also I don't buy Patrick/David as a couple. They have zero chemistry and the actor who plays Patrick is terrible.

R92, Patrick talks about falling for another dude before David at the end of season five. At the least, he was mostly straight, more likely bi

[quote]this show is totally feel like "Canadian humor" which I don't think translates as well in America because frankly Americans aren't good with surrealist humor

I don't know, r98, I am a huge fan of Corner Gas and Red Green, SCTV and the Christopher Guest films, I feel like I pretty well get Canadian humor (and I loved 30 Rock too, which you listed as being Canadian-like) and I just couldn't maintain interest in Schitt's Creek.

I was curious as to what episode I last watched and as I scrolled through the episodes, I realized I didn't actually remember a lot of what I'd seen, it made very little lasting impression on me.

God knows I tried! The problem is I hate the kids. I quit after 5 or 6 annoying episodes.

Not true r110! I’m here. I stopped following the thread since it seemed to have slowed down, but today it just popped up again in my feed.

R114 & R98 I agree that 30 Rock and Schitt's Creek are rooted in surrealist comedy, but 30 Rock was far more solidly written and acted. I think the reason why 30 Rock works better for me is that it's rooted in satire of American culture and I think that's why it did better outside of America than in the US. Schitt's Creek doesn't have that same satirical edge and really is much softer and just about a bunch of bizarre people living in a little town. I'll be real, if Catherine O'Hara hadn't been on the show, it never would have taken off.

I feel guilty for not liking Schitt’s Creek.

I’m a huge SCTV fan; I even like Chris Elliott.

(For the record, I loved “Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Chris Guest movies, etc,. etc.)

And I’ve tried three separate times to get into Schitt’s Creek.

But the show just isn’t funny to me - and I don’t think Dan Levy is a good actor.
