Bless Canada 🇨🇦 for gifting us this television treasure and comedy gold known as Schitt's Creek. The television sitcom, created by father and son duo Eugene Levy and Dan Levy, premiered on CBC Television (and airs in the United States on Pop) on January 13, 2015 and is on its curent fourth season. The show stars Legend Catherine O'Hara as Moira Rose, Eugene Levy as Johnny Rose, Annie Murphy as Alexis Rose and Dan Levy as David Rose. Eugene's daughter (and Dan's sister) Sarah Levy, is also on the show as Twyla Sands, the waitress at Café Tropical. Inspired by “The Real Housewives” franchise and “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” Dan developed an idea for a sitcom inspired by those shows and thought “what would happen to a family like this if the money was stripped away?” Dan approached his father with the idea and from there they created the show. The show centers around the Rose family when they lose everything and are forced to live in a motel in Schitt's Creek, a small town Johnny Rose purchased for his son David as a joke. What unfolds are hilarious and touching moments as a wealthy family adjusts to their new lives and are forced to connect with each other in ways they hadn't when money was no object. Since its premiere and thanks to Netflix, the show has slowly garnered a loyal following worldwide and especially here on ONTD (thank you harrys_headband and urtrash - gif game too strong). Let us take a look at some of the best moments from this show, and please take it easy on this OP if your favorite moment isn't included, this is only Part I 😉.
