There are 5,000 people in Letterkenny. These are their problems. So begins every episode of the show, which is itself a reference to the sitcom's humble beginnings as a 2013 webseries called Letterkenny Problems, created by Keeso and Jacob Tierney (who recurs on the show as an aggressively closeted Evangelical pastor). Canadian network Crave TV picked it up for a series in 2015, and incorporated a few of the best sketches into the first season's episodes. In 2018, Hulu acquired exclusive American streaming rights, and the brand-new Season 8 -- as well as the entire rest of the show -- is now streaming on the network.
Letterkenny's "problems" are, of course, relative. Many of the show's plots revolve around Wayne getting into fistfights to prove himself as the toughest dude in Letterkenny and trying to find love after breaking up with his high school sweetheart at the start of the first season. The other members of the town include the "skids," the emo druggies who are constantly coming up with weird schemes; the "natives," the members of the local First Nations reserve who are constantly battling the hicks and the skids for turf; and the constantly losing hockey team made up of a bunch of beefy out-of-towners. It's perfect feel-good TV: nothing truly terrible ever happens to anyone, except for the guy who accidentally had sex with an ostrich (allegedly), and the whole town is populated by exactly the kind of man I find to generally be the best: large, charming bro doofuses.
A lot of it features Wayne, Darryl, and their overallsed buddy Squirrely Dan (K. Trevor Wilson) sitting around and simply shooting the shit about whatever's going on in their small town, occasionally involving Wayne's sister Katy (Michelle Mylett) in whatever weird ideas they come up with to pass the time. Seven seasons in, the show basically has its own language -- thankfully for us Yanks, the Letterkenny wiki includes a generous glossary of slang terms. A lot of it is hockey slang, which rivals Cockney rhyming slang in its intricacy ("Just blast clappers at the hash marks at the fuckin' plug tendy of ours." -- Sorry, WHAT???) The rest is near-Shakespearean wordplay and recurring puns, mainly to show off the intelligence of the kind of folks we'd otherwise dismiss as being stupid.
