Movie Reviews

Open arms for "Robson Arms"
Richard E. T. White | Seattle, WA USA | 01/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series was a delightful surprise. I picked it up after enjoying a number of great Canadian TV programs(DA VINCI'S INQUEST, SLINGS AND ARROWS, INTELLIGENCE)because it featured Mark McKinney and John Cassini, whose work I had enjoyed in those shows. It's an anthology, really, akin to a really satisfying book of short stories. Each 22-minute episode is a character study that takes you into one apartment in the Robson Arms, so you gradually get to know the eccentric, wonderfully delineated denizens of the building. Unifying elements include Cassini's randy super Yuri, the fountain statue whose urinations are timed suspiciously well to the sexual activities in the building, and the on-camera musical musings of a folk duo who lurk about the premises. The tone of the episodes ranges from farcical to very touching, but there's a core of humanity to each of them that's just lovely. Just be aware: this isn't ABC Family Channel stuff: the language is pretty salty, the sexuality and drug use are frank."
Hilarious

"Whenever I travel in Canada I catch this show. I've been checking periodically hoping it would come out on DVD and here it is! My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that I haven't actually watched each episode. If you want something laugh out loud funny, with a sexual twist here and there, give this show a chance! And for those of you that long to spend more time in Canada than is feasible, the show may help take a little edge off the longing of wanting to be north of the border."
Love it

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Being a fan of Corner Gas, I thought I would give Robson Arms a try. While described as a "dramedy" I imagined it to be closer to C.G or even Northern Exposure in style. It's not like either, with a darker look and feel. The stories are very well written with endings that leave you feeling good.
That aside, I did find myself enjoying the characters a great deal and find the humor subtle, which I enjoy. I have come to love this show and am buying season 2 and looking forward to future seasons.
Fine acting and writing make this worthwhile"
