Schitt’s Creek Available on Netflix
This isn’t a review; I really just needed to talk about how incredible Schitt’s Creek is. I don’t think I have cried so much during a show since watching Sons of Anarchy. This show is beautiful. Absolute perfection. I am not someone who cries often. But this show made me ugly cry at least five times. No spoilers, but if you have watched this show and want to talk about it forever- let me know. Because I am available for that. Sigh. Beautiful show!
I have had friends telling me to watch Schitt’s Creek for years now. And I finally did it. Whew. My heart is torn between being so unbelievably happy and devasted. Happy because this show is refreshing and pure and unabashedly beautiful. This show highlights so many beautiful things; the power of family, perseverance, redemption, love, and embracing change.
The costumes alone were stunning. I watched the documentary filming the final season, and it is crazy that Daniel Levy found so many designer pieces for such affordable prices. The creative brilliance that went into dressing these characters was pure perfection. The clothes were almost as wonderful as the characters!
The characters on this show go through such a dynamic evolution of growth. Each character is so deeply dynamic and so full of life and so funny. You really can’t help but fall a little in love with them all. Something I genuinely appreciated with this show was how everyone was so accepting regarding sexuality. This show is such a beautiful representation of love and gives so much positive light to the LGBTQ+ community. I love how David and Patrick’s love story unfolds. There is no big struggle to overcome; they don’t have to “beat the odds” they have a beautiful love story, and we watch it blossom and grow. Seeing an LGBTQ+ relationship being presented in such a “normal” light is refreshing. And the acceptance and normality that surrounds the way everyone embraces queer lifestyles is incredible.
I am devasted because it is over. Six seasons isn’t enough. This is a show that could have gone forever. But I applaud the crew for making the tough decision to end things on their terms… and ending things on a high. As much sense as that makes and as amazing as it is, seeing a show’s creators having absolute control and calling the shots is powerful. Eugene and Daniel Levy created something simply magical.
I hadn’t seen many of the actors before, and I love that Eugene and Daniel Levy were so determined in finding the perfect people to bring their characters to life. I also really appreciate how groundbreaking this show was for Canadian television. And I really appreciate that the show consisted of mostly Canadian actors. It was a wonderful introduction to some very talented individuals.
The cast was perfect, the writing was brilliant, and the message contained within this comedy was pure genius. The writing for this show was truly perfect. The comedic timing and level of talent presented in each episode was magical. Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara are pure dynamite together. The chemistry was real, and it is so obvious there was nothing but love and respect among the cast and crew. If you are looking for a show that will make you laugh out loud and cry like a baby, watch Schitt’s Creek.
All six seasons of Schitt’s Creek is streaming on Netflix now! Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: A Schitt’s Creek Farewell is also streaming on Netflix and is worth watching.
