When I looked at the title of the series, I thought this will be a low class series, in it for the laughs. Well, yes, laughs are plenty, but this series has a good background story. This series seems to have the entire Levy family as characters, and, they are all quite good.
Eugene Levy is the patriarch, Johnny Rose. He is a self made man earning millions, until he lost everything. His wife, Moira, played by Cathetine O'Hara was an actress appearing in soaps, and she is actually very funny. Down on their luck, with their two children, Alexis, played by Anne Murphy, and her brother David, played by Dan Levy. Alexis is the play child,who follows her mother's fancy of 'things'. They all mean a lot, name brands and all. Dan, appears to also live Things, but he is much more reasonable. So, here they are living in a small motel, Schitt's Creek.
Storylines come and go, but always with humor and good manners. Johnny is a very reasonable man, thankful for everyone, and trying to figure out what happened to their lives. The rest of the family tags along, hoping for a change. Humor us well placed, but there is always a serious side to the issues. Certainly a play on words, but fun to observe.
