This is a TV show that is sooo addictive, you'll be quoting it everyday. Me and my friends quote it all the time. The characters are very original and the stories are just too funny. There's Julian, the leader who ALWAYS has a drink in his hand, even after a car accident he emerges drink in hand. Bubbles, who steals broken shopping carts and repairs them and sells them back to the mall. Then Ricky, who's only source of income is growing and selling dope. And he's kinda stupid and says things backwards. Together these three come up with hairbrained schemes to get money while avoiding the Mr. Lahey, the trailer park supervision and his no-shirt wearing side kick Randy (who's a former male prositute). Corey and Trevor are too wanna-be's who admire the 3 guys so much they take their abuse and get mixed up in all the hijinx. There's alot more. Rent these on Netflix if you can. You won't regret it. The best part is, its cable so there's cursing. Better yet.. youtube them and laugh your butt off. There's lots of best of.. videos for each character.

"Was told about this show by a work collegue who said he nearly wet himself with laughter watching the show. Once my wife and i started watching we were hooked!!
As soon as the fourth season had finished we came on here and bought all the dvd's as you cannot get them in England as it is only shown on sky tv channel paramount. Then paramount repeated all 4 series again and we were hooked every night. It has just finished showing again and we are having withdrawl symptoms!! Our dvd's should be here soon and the sooner the better!! The best episodes were 'mans gotta eat' where randy returns to the streets as smokey to fund his cheeseburger habit, and 'propane, propane' where Mr. Layhey looses it and tries to kill ricky. Everybody should watch trailer park boys as it is so funny but it does take a few episodes to really get into it. We are busy converting everybody we know into TPB addicts and as soon as our dvd's get here we are locking all our friends in our front room and watching all of them on our 42' wide screen tv. No one is leaving until they are hooked too!!! BUY THEM ALL!!!"
Like watching a train wreck you cant take your eyes away.

"The first TBP episode I saw was the last one of the first season.... the marriage episode, I was totaly disgusted because I tought it was a real reality show.Then I saw the TPB christmas special and I saw that this was genius( from the male prostitute dressed as a elf to Ricky selling drugs in the church. I am now the biggest fan of TPB there is, this is the best show on television.... after the sopranos of course.
This is the only show which can make me laugh out loud!
BUy this theres no way youll be disapointed."
A mockumentary whose time was long overdue

"I haven't been this happy to watch a comedy series, or anything for that matter, in I don't know how long!
Ricky, one half of the main character force, is powerfully ignorant; forcefully ignorant. Everything he causes to go wrong becomes somebody else's fault through his warped rationalization. He's uselessly wise about his own stupidity. It's a thing of beauty to behold! He's constantly setting up people with Knock Knock jokes that don't actually follow the Knock Knock rhythm just so he can tell people to f*** off. Each time he does this, I laugh harder than the last time! Rob Wells plays this character to the hilt and is the true comedic genius driving this entire show, in my opinion.
Julian is the straight man/tough guy/brains of the outfit. He comes off as seeming more intelligent but it's only because he has more poise. He's almost as stupid as Ricky. It does not matter what is going on, to include action scenes, Julian is NEVER without his rum and Coke, ice tinkling in the glass. It kills me!
Something is clearly dysfunctional about Bubbles in a fundemental fashion, and yet he is the most intelligent citizen in the park. He passionately curses non-stop in a way as natural to him as taking the next breath. His blisteringly foul language often pops up in the most benign of situations causing the funny quotient to leap upwards.
There's a guy who never wears a shirt, wears too tight white pants, has a huge belly, and there's no explanation given, ever, for why he's like this.
The "Bottle Kids" randomly appear to smash bottles on people's windshields or homes, while the people are there, and this is an accepted part of life in the park. These brief, yet intense little violences hit when you least expect them. I'm telling you. it's funny!
Ricky's six year old daughter rolls her own smokes.
As you might guess, I could really carry on about this show. It's spectacular! Comedy's audience is sometimes elusive but if you're a fan of stereotype driven absurdity then don't hesitate to watch this series."
