    I liked a Canadian show called Da Vinci's Inquest:)

    Quite well written show with good actors.
    I was watching this from TV when I was still living in Finland.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    Kinda. It wasn't quite as overtly wacky as Arrested Development could be at times but it was equally clever. Really, the closest comparison to Made in Canada would be Action, a short-lived American series about an unscrupulous movie producer (Jay Mohr). I go back & forth over who was the bigger showbiz scumbag, Made in Canada's Richard Strong or Peter Dragon from Action. Overall, I'd say that while Action was a raunchier show, Peter Dragon still seemed to have some semblance of a conscience. He never screwed over anyone that wasn't screwed up to begin with. On the other hand, just in the first 4 episodes of Made in Canada, Richard...
    1. Drugged his brother-in-law and then framed him for fondling the boss' daughter.
    2. Hired a disgruntled ex-employee to severely injure a movie star just to embarass Victor.
    3. Recommended that an actor go to Mexico to get a hair transplant, which lead to his death. (Although, it's unclear exactly how much of that Richard actually planned.)
