    I tried watching the first episode of Schitt's Creek a few years ago but it seemed pretty lame, not very funny. So I gave up on it real quick. Maybe it was the Canadian humor.. But I thought it was maybe premature to call quits so soon as it has been running for several seasons, and usually that's an indication its pretty good. Maybe it gets better as it goes?

    And now I see it make history by winning the most Emmy awards for comedy series in a single season ever. It won 9 awards. Not sure a comedy show can even technically win more. And that was for its final season, season 7, which only ran for 14 episodes.

    So anyone that's a fan of this show recommend it? Or is the hype around this final season somehow unwarranted?

    I honestly don't understand what so many like about the show. I've seen quite a bit of it and just don't get the appeal. Seems so tropey and boring. Then again, I didn't actually start the show from the beginning, so I could be entirely wrong.

    So you think it could be a show like Arrested Development where you need to start from the very beginning and be 'in' on all the inside jokes to enjoy it and really get it?
