Y’all, life’s hard. Like really hard, I’m ready to give up on college, move to the New Zealand bush and become a goat farmer. However, similarly to how I can’t complete an Aaron assignment on time, I can’t drop out of high school and make goat cheese for the rest of my life! Instead, I watch an offensively astronomical amount of television! On this week's agenda, we have Schitt’s Creek; as you can probably tell from its title, the show is quite satirical. In a nutshell, Schitt’s Creek is about a very affluent couple and their adult children. The mother, Moira Rose, is a former soap opera star, the father, Johnny, is the owner of a chain of video stores. Their children, David and Alexis, live off of their parents’ money and do whatever they want. However, their lives completely fall apart after their business manager gets convicted of fraud, causing the IRS to take all of their assets and forcing them to move to a town called Schitt’s Creek that Johnny bought for David as a joke for his birthday one year. Over the course of the 4 seasons that are currently out, we get to see them struggle in the podunk town of Schitt’s Creek and eventually land on their feet. It’s a great show, 10/10 would recommend; it’s funny, Moira is really annoying, but that’s easy to overlook because the rest of it slaps. Anyways, season 5 will be on Netflix on the 10th so go crazy go stupid and binge the first 4 seasons.
It's on Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Prime, iTunes, and Google Play.
