In Canada: Tuesdays, 8.30pm ET, CBC
I always approach Canadian comedies with a degree of trepidation these days. While Canadian drama is on something on a roll, every comedy I watch is a stinker, whether it's 18 to Life, Men with Brooms, Hiccups or anything else that comes my way. Basically, it seems no matter who it's by, who's in it, what it's about or what channel it's on, a Canadian comedy is a desperately unfunny half an hour that makes you wonder where the Kids in the Hall are when you need them and how much Canada can pay Ryan Reynolds, Steve Martin et al to come back.
So I really wasn't expecting a lot from CBC's InSecurity, which is best thought of as the Canadian version of 1980s British sitcom The Piglet Files. In it, agents for the fictional Canadian intelligence agency, NISA, run around saving the country completely accidentally since they're actually - with one exception - a bunch of incompetents. Thankfully, so are all the bad guys - because they're Canadian and Canadians are inherently loveable and not good at stuff that involves violence apparently.
And you know what? I was expecting not a lot and not a lot is what I got. Queue the trailer.
