Season 8 kicks some serious ass

Trailer Park Boys fans, the wait is over. Season 8 is here!

Everyone’s favourite trio of dope growin’, kitty lovin’, and whiskey drinkin’ boys are back, and this season is the best yet.

With the start up of Swearnet.com by Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay, and Mike Smith (Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles) this season took on a life of its own. With the guys having complete creative control, a new brand of fuckery came about with the release of Season 8 exclusively on Netflix.

The five-year absence of Trailer Park Boys on TV ultimately gave us such a hankering for the ‘boys,’ that when it was finally released, fans flocked from everywhere to binge watch the great Canadian series. Due to the extended lack of the show, a few characters failed to come back.

Trevor, the infamous side kick of Cory and more basically categorized character, Ricky’s bitch, didn’t return after Cory lost him at a Backstreet Boys concert in Halifax. Jacob Collins ended up taking the place of Cory’s sidekick and Ricky’s bitch and ended up taking a new spin as *spoiler alert* ultimately Ricky’s new son-in-law after a love child sprung out of Ricky’s daughter Trinity.

Another character that will be missed is Phil Collins. After Collins’ actor Richard Collins passed away last April, there really was no way of replacing Collins and his infamous gut on Trailer Park Boys. There was no mention to Collins’ death within the new season.

In my opinion, the best part of this season was the amount of screen time that everyone’s favourite character was handed: Bubbles. We see a culmination of the boys within their own problems, but Bubbles, being the level headed character we’ve seen in the past, really took Season 8 into a new level of entertainment for everyone.

As the season progressed, we see Ricky’s new business and currency of “hash coins” take the place of regular cash, J-Roc hitting the j-cells, an impotent and drunk as fuck Mr. Lahey, a new Trailer Park Supervisor in Randy, and a new creepy, hippie, earth-lovin’ Assistant Supervisor in Don, who has another side in his alter ego, Donna.

The boys are ultimately challenged in saving the park from the hands of Cyrus and Caveman Sam. As the season progresses, we see a crab outbreak in Bubble’s kitty bed and breakfast, a strip club open up in Julian’s new Sports Bar, and a shit ton of hash oil produced by the boys after a parrot gets clogged in their “high security” grow op’s air conditioner.

There’s romance, drama, a shit ton of drugs and alcohol, which equals into a damn good season produced by the Trailer Park Boys.

It had fans laughing, shaking their heads, and obviously wanting more when the boys ended up back in jail at the end of Season 8.

I know I can speak for everyone when I say that this is one of the most entertaining seasons of Trailer Park Boys, and I really suggest you check it out. If you don’t, I’m sure Ricky has some offs that you can gladly fuck.
