But the hockey series was more than just that final game.
In the game's last seconds, their hero Paul Henderson scored an epoch-making goal.
The fast and skilled Soviets surprisingly showed up Team Canada in eight gruelling games that changed Canadian hockey forever. And the drama began in game one when Team Canada skated onto the ice self-admiring and mighty, only to be knocked down hard, 7-3, by the Soviet Union.
With more than 30 species already gone and over 400 species of plants and animals at risk, Canada is starting to get serious about protecting its endangered species.
Basically it, the show usually airs very late at night due to it's mature subject matter, just when all the other channels are plugging in re-runs.
How does this show compare to the other late-night cartoon comedies(like Adult swim, Toon at Night, etc.)? The show is about Mark Dexler chilling with his 2 roomies Woody and VJ and gal pal Sam, and their quests for getting drunk and chasing tail.
With such a simple story base it allows writers to be very creative with hijinks and the story, with a very anything can happen nature.
And the art style is done well and suits the subject matter.
Although it still has it's flaws: It aimless story idea that allows for a lot of creativity but despite it's strong efforts just doesn't make the mark(heh).The jokes and episodes never push the envelope and you'll probably guess how it ends correctly by the first couple of minutes.The characters are very vain and mean spirited just for the fun of it(but not in a "glorious bastard" or "loveable villain" way) making it hard to relate or cheer them on.And the views on race and gender sort of reinforce negative stereotypes(just slightly) rather than parody media and the general public way of thinking.The episodes that are funny or involve celebrity appearances(Russel Peters) are more pleasant surprises than anything else. The show debuted on October 3, 2006 on CBC Television, and is hosted by Dianne Buckner.
