Creek" review by Suzanne
Airs Wednesdays 10p/9c on POPTV
This is a cute little Canadian sitcom about a rich family
that loses everything when their financial advisor runs off
with their money (and the government takes the rest because
of unpaid back taxes). Their only asset is a terrible little
town they bought as a joke.
They move there and find that it's a really awful town,
so they decide to try to sell it. Most of the show is about
the family dealing with living like regular people.
The dad is your standard TV dad. Eugene Levy is a master at
playing this kind of under-stated dumb guy role. Catherine
O'Hara plays his slightly-crazy drugged-up socialite wife (a
former TV star). Their son is an artist who may or may not
be gay, and their daughter is a socalite, like Paris Hilton
or someone like her, who lives on Twitter. They live in a
crappy motel and have to deal with the obnoxious mayor
(played by Chris Elliot).
It's not the funniest show in the world, but it's
entertaining, and the stories are intriguing. I plan to keep
watching it! You should check it out.
