Like Miami Vice, Except Funny

There are few current television series that integrate music and images as well as Crave’s Letterkenney.

If you haven’t seen it it’s currently on Hulu and worth watching.

The series revolves around the quirky – or just plain weird – residents of the fictional community of Letterkenny.

Created by Jared Kelso (who plays Wayne) and Jacob Tierney, it isn’t the most even of shows in terms of tone though when it works, it really works really well (which it does more often than not).

What’s most particularly interesting is how adult themes are handled (sexuality and drugs in particular), which is fairly blatant and something you don’t typically see in American movies – Letterkenny is Canadian – never mind television shows on cable networks without a heck of a lot of judgement.
