    Is anyone else watching this show? I found it on Netflix and have been hooked since.

    The basic premise is an ultra rich family loses everything except the small rural town they bought as a joke gift for their sons birthday.

    Eugene Levy and his son Dan created and star in the show, along with Catherine O'Hara and Annie Murphy, and Chris Elliott is great as Roland Schitt, the slightly sketchy Mayor and descendant of the towns founders.

    The humor is low key, the townspeople aren't ignorant hicks and the rich people aren't jerks, it's more of a fish out of water story with everyone trying to adjust to their new reality.

    My wife and I love it. We think it is very entertaining without being anything but pleasant. Truly rare in the in-your-face world of TV entertainment these days. Season 4 won't premiere until January, unfortunately.

    yea, we watched it...very funny. Dan Levy is great.

    Have you seen Corner Gas ? also a very funny Canadian sit-com.

    Thanks for the recommendation. Watched episode one last night. Very amusing! I'll definitely continue with this series.

    I love it, especially the mom, of "Home Alone" fame. I am eagerly anticipating the new season.
