ong-running shows leave their marks on television. “Schitt’s Creek” has been no exception. With its conclusion, here is a quick look at its legacy.
“Schitt’s Creek” gave us a tiny town with a host of characters. This little oasis in the world far away from the “phobias” of the world. The town of Schitt’s Creek is inclusive to the LGBTQ community. When David Rose (Daniel Levy) came out as pansexual, his parents Johnny and Moira (Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara) were very accepting. The town was also unbothered by his sexual orientation.

There are few characters on television that over the course of a series go through a major transformation and character development. “Schitt’s Creek” character Alexis Rose is one of those.
When introduced in Season One, Alexis is a vapid rich young woman who has never had to struggle or work for anything. That is until her family loses their entire fortune and are forced to move to the only asset they have: a tiny town called Schitt’s Creek. Continue reading Spotlight: Alexis Rose
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. Besides this one family that we focus on, we are also graced by the presence of Stevie Budd (Emily Hampshire) – motel’s receptionist, Roland Schitt (Chris Elliott), and Jocelyn Schitt (Jennifer Robertson).

We are just a couple of months away from the beginning of the end. The Canadian comedy, “Schitt’s Creek” became a hit thanks to the audience Netflix brought. If you have not watched the show yet, now is the time to get started.
The show follows the Rose family. Johnny (Eugene Levy) is the patriarch of the family. He obtained his wealth through video stores. Moira (Catherine O’Hara) is the matriarch, who starred on notable soap operas and is a C-list actress. Their children David (Daniel Levy – and Eugene’s own son) and Alexis (Annie Murphy) have never worked a day in their lives. One day, it is learned that the Rose family has lost everything after being defrauded by their business manager. But they do have one asset (no, Moira, not the children) – a small town called Schitt’s Creek that Johnny bought. Continue reading Netflix Review: Now is the Time to Watch “Schitt’s Creek”
