OT: "The Tournament" on OLN

Anybody seen this show? Accidentally found it after the game tonight - it's about crazy Canadian hockey parents and it is very funny...

Blech. Terrible acting, very low budget.

I thought the little girl was funny. Someone shot on her net and she says "***, I wasn't ready...."

I guess it's a CBC show and has been around for a while?

Yeah. . .The promos for it have been going on for months now. Can't say I've ever watched the show because. . .well. . .CBC doesn't generally show great shows.

Agreed! My little brother plays club hockey, and is the same age as the players on the team, so there are a lot of similiarties! I found it funny.

I'm interested in getting a DVD for the first season, but I can't find anything about it...anywhere.

I watched it before the game, thought it was amusing. Any hockey programming is great in my book.

It's probably about people like YOU, that's why you don't like it!

I think it should be mandatory viewing for all hockey parents! It's so true to life for some Canuck parents, its scary! 10 year olds are NOT destined for the NHL. They are destined for middle school! Let them grow up a bit!

HUGELY funny! I hate "stage" parents, so this show is GREAT!!!!!!!!!

This show was on CBC just around new years of 04/05, when i was in Halifax. I only saw an episode or two but i thought it was perty boring, but its alright if your up drunk at like 3 in the morning after a Mooseheads game or somthing.

Right, because I dislike a low budget Canadian television show it must mean I resemble a crazy Canadian parent who reminded me of Darcy Tucker.

No, I understand the whole premise about it and it certainly could make for an amusing show. I'm just not a fan of the humor and the acting is poor.
