Trailer Park Boys Sea­son 9 [ Net­flix]

TekSavvy Insider - - Contents -

The boys are out of jail again and they’ve got brand new per­spec­tives on their lives, thanks to Ju­lian’s love for books and Ricky’s love for his fam­ily. As usual, things have changed at Sunnyvale while the boys were in con col­lege, and adapt­ing to the new Sunnyvale Vil­las Re­tire­ment Com­mu­nity isn’t go­ing to be easy - es­pe­cially for Ricky who finds him­self banned from the prop­erty by Lahey.

Sea­son 9 in­tro­duces a new char­ac­ter in ex- war vet­eran Colonel Les­lie Dancer. His job is to keep or­der at Sunnyvale, and that in­cludes keep­ing booze off the premises. Like Lahey, Colonel Dancer has an in­sa­tiable lust for the liquor, how­ever there’s a mu­tual agree­ment to keep each other sober for the greater good but, as we’ve found out in the past, booze is more pow­er­ful than any agree­ment! This sea­son plays out in much the same as the pre­vi­ous ones, with Ju­lian con­coct­ing a scheme to make money so that he can buy the park, while Bub­bles is do­ing his best to live life on the straight and nar­row, and Ricky is strug­gling more than ever to get keep up with, well, ev­ery­thing. The birth of his grand­son means that Ricky is try­ing to put his fam­ily first this time around and cre­ate a “sta­ble en­vi­ron­ment” - he’s even ac­cepted Ja­cob Collins as part of the fam­ily - but things are des­tined not to go ac­cord­ing to plan, as usual, and he’s too stupid to un­der­stand his short­com­ings. As a whole, Sea­son 9 of the Trailer Park Boys is one of the most cre­ative to date, with the writ­ers com­ing up with some fan­tas­tic new plot­lines, of­ten tak­ing the car­ac­ters to never be­fore seen lows ( quite an achieve­ment in it­self), and up­ping the grease fac­tor to no end. It’s fan­tas­tic to see a home­grown show con­tinue to excel in the way TPB has, and I’m al­ready count­ing down the days un­til Sea­son 10 hits Net­flix.
