Review it here!
As a Canadian, should I be offended by this episode? Objectively, I thought they painted an oddly cruel depiction of Canadians, while still adopting a bunch of tired stereotypes (Proots, eh, chesterfield, metric system, syrup, Coffee Crisp...which was round and flat for some reason, etc). Guelph was an odd choice of location. People from Guelph aren't specifically French or have accents like the couple who moved in. I just thought it was a weird depiction, and they didn't really deal with the issue of tolerance nearly as effectively as when Kahn moved in during season 1. The ending, where the Canadian guy isn't even grateful was also a bit malicious. Was this all for the sake of making a point about Americans acting like good and grateful neighbors, despite their greatness? I'm... a bit confused. And as a Canadian, I will say that backyard bar setup looked extremely appealing.
Funny how we talked about Boomhauer's first name a bunch last week and debated whether "Jeff" was actually said on the show itself. Well, now it has.
