    Trailer Park Boys

    I love this show.

    East-coast Canadian low-lifes swearing, stealing, bong-hitting, recovering from hangovers while scratching a ridiculous existence in a fictional Nova Scotian trailerpark; dig the accents!



    Here's a good sample from a typical episode:




    Money-making schemes

    Over the seasons the Boys have undertaken many schemes to make money and get rich. Their goal in Season 2 is "Freedom 35," a plan to have enough money to retire by age 35. These schemes inevitably fail due to their own stupidity, Cory and Trevor, violence, or interference by Mr. Lahey, Randy and/or the police.

    * Throughout the series, Bubbles throws shopping carts down a steep hill at the mall, retrieves them later, repairs them and sells them back to the stores for $18. He reasons that it isn't theft because most of the money goes back into the malls in order to buy cat food. Lahey and Randy do not interfere in this enterprise, but in Season 5, Bubbles was given a hard time by Gary the Head Mall Cop, which hurt his feelings and made him cry.

    * Running an illegal nightclub in J-Roc's mom's trailer. Cory and Trevor passed out leaflets in a bar called The Empty Closet and attracted a gay all-male crowd. Cory and Trevor go home with some "ladies" that they picked up at the nightclub, but later they learn that they are in fact not "ladies". It was forced to be shut down by Lahey, Randy, and the police, but Randy, who wanted the credit for stopping it, allowed them to keep all the money they made.

    * Stealing people's groceries from Sobeys and Superstore, right off the parcel-pick up line and re-selling them back at the trailer park for money and booze.

    * Filming and distributing J-Roc's homemade porno movies. J-Roc usually sells these on eBay to Europe and local grocery stores. Such films include "From Russia With The Lovebone", "The Bare Pimp Project", and "J-Roc's Greasy Trailer Park Girls Gone Wild!". Ricky and Bubbles both star in the first film; however, Ricky flat-out refuses to appear in the second with Bubbles, who once again is more than happy to oblige. Bare Pimp Project is less a money-making scheme and more truthfully a plan spawned by Julian -- who pays J-Roc eight hundred dollars to finance the film and receive a free copy-- in order to usurp Sam's plan to marry Barbara, as the boys fear this will give Sam more influence over the trailer park. The third film was canceled following a trailer park breakdown by the police.


    Bubbles (a talented guitarist, actually) pictured with Alex Lifeson from Rush, whom the boys kidnapped in one episode over a pound of dope. Bubbles is also noted for "Liquor and Whores," which he has sung on tour with Guns and Roses

    * Reselling stolen gasoline, which was siphoned out of the cars of unsuspecting citizens. Ricky states that "regular tastes tangy, supreme tastes sour and diesel tastes pretty good." Plan fails when the police arrive, they blame it on Cory and Trevor, who are sentenced to 450 hours of community service. Since they were on oxygen tanks after drinking gasoline, they were unable to defend themselves.

    * Organizing a spring fair in the park, complete with a wrestling ring and Bubbles as his wrestler "The Green Bastard from parts unknown". This comes into idea after Ricky gains control of the park as supervisor, but it fails when Randy and Lahey stop the event and Ricky, losing his temper, flips some cars with a front end loader.

    * Staging a rap concert in the trailer park, with J-Roc and his homies as the main entertainment. It was a success that attracted nearly three hundred, until rapper DVS shows up (called DVD by Ricky) and pulls a gun out.

    * Growing weed in an abandoned trailer, then later in Bubbles' tool shed. The plan fails when Bubbles' tool shed burns down and destroys the crop.

    * Ricky and Julian grow weed in 4 fields and plan to sell it to dealers in Moncton. They attempt to disguise their scheme by stealing a propane truck, fixing it with old license plates, emptying the propane out and selling it for money then packing in the weed.

    * Ricky using kids to help them steal barbecues in an attempt to resell them, as minors are protected under the young offenders act. The plan fails when one of the kids' parents, who happens to be a police officer, catches them trying to hide the barbecues in the lake. Cory and Trevor end up taking most of the heat.

    * Stealing Christmas gifts from cars in the mall parking lot and re-selling them in front of the church on Christmas Eve. Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, J-Roc, Tyrone, and Cory and Trevor get past the mall security guards by wrapping up the crowbars, used to pry open car trunks, like giant decorative candy canes.


    Ricky, Bubbles and Julian (who is always carrying a rum and coke

    * Running a prostitution ring in Julian's tinfoil covered trailer in the outskirts of the park, complete with furnishings stolen from a local motel and a government building. Half of the furniture is wrecked, because they used a garbage truck to steal the furniture, and Trevor accidentally switched on the compactor. Despite the fact that Cyrus breaks up the event, J-Roc takes the rap for the boys by claiming responsibility and getting arrested, allowing them to get away with forty dollars after paying off Tyrone and the prostitues their share of the money (it is then suggested they spend this on food).

    * Ricky having Trevor bring barbecues or lawn furniture to the front of the house (where garbage would be picked up), then Ricky himself approaches, loudly proclaims the newly-placed items to be trash, then loads them into his car. That way, according to Ricky, it is not stealing, since it's garbage (when it's at the side of the road) and he's doing a favour to the people who don't want it anymore.

    * Julian's plan of stealing many gumball machines, removing the quarters and playing as many Video Lottery Terminal(VLT's) as possible. After that they collect the payout slips, get them photocopied and drive from one corner store to another cashing the fraudulent tickets throughout the year.

    * Ricky and Bubbles steal meat and sell it in parking lots. However, this scheme comes to a halt after Bubbles gets stranded in a Meat freezer for 3 hours, and Julian has to break into the store to save him.

    * Using the Patrick Swayzie Express, a model train that Bubbles stole from a model train convention in Maine and model train tracks laid by Jacob Collins, Julian and Ricky send several hundred pounds of pot to Sebastian Bach from New Brunswick, across the border and into Maine. Once there, Sebastian Bach sent back over $250,000 US worth of cigarette, which would be sold in the trailer park. The plan itself worked (and made them nearly $450,000 US), but Mr. Lahey, American park rangers, and the FBI all catch them. Since none of them have any direct evidence of the drug shipment, they can charge them with very little. Ricky chooses to be arrested by the park rangers, who charge him with endangering the well-being of Beavers.

    Despite these failures, the boys have made some successful ventures into making money. Bubbles recently made a legitimate business in his tool shed called "The Kittyland Love Centre," a daycare/spa/amusement park for cats. It has scratching posts, litter boxes, plenty of food, and, of course, Bubbles as the daycare's owner and sole employee. Cory and Trevor have opened up a convenience store (which they spell "convenients store") at the park where they sell gum, single cigarettes, corn chips, popcorn, chicken chips, illegal DVDs and Doritos, much to the delight of Ricky.

    Actually it's quite different... it's a "mockumentary" so it has this naturalistic, verite feel, which heightens the realism and absurdity. The writer/director was lucky to find this cast.

    Here's another:



    In some ways it's a breakthrough for mainstream American television as the boys are regularly hot-knifing, bong-hitting and trimming buds of obviously real marijuana, which they've usually stolen

    I've been working my way through Entourage Series 2. Excellent show. The characters have a great chemistry; lots of piss taking and there's also lots of fanny to look at.

    9/10

    Curb Your Enthusiasm relies on The Embarrassing Moment, much like The Office. I like the US version, actually! Steve Carrell (the waste-of-space boss) is well cast, imho.

    only saw one episode of the US version didn't match up to UK (my opinion)
    i do like the cringe factor in both shows.
