“Fear not, she hath risen!”, Or Moira Rose in a Nutshell

Anybody who knows me also remembers that I absolutely and utterly adore “Schitt’s Creek.” This Canadian television series created by Dan and Eugene Levy is a great, smart, and incredibly funny sitcom about a once-wealthy family who loses all their money and is forced to live in a small town called Schitt’s Creek. Said town was once bought for the son by the father as a joke. In effect, it’s the only asset that the Rose family possesses (and is ready to hang onto it as long as they find another buyer).

Every single character created by Levys is mastered to perfection. Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) is a smart businessman and a proud creator of once incredibly famous Rose Video. Moira (Catherine O’Hara), a matriarch of the family, is a soap opera star. Their children – Alexis (Annie Murphy) and David (Dan Levy), although not experienced in adult life (let’s remember that they are adults), they bring the most laugh.
