Schitt’s Creek – Season 6

The final & victory lap for a comedic masterpiece – following the fortunes of the Rose family in the town they came to own as a joke, and centering around the wedding of son David & his partner Patrick, as well as the resolution of the storyline of daughter Alexis. …

Which, as ever, appears to make for much more palatable viewing …
