Our Favourite Clips - Sex, Drugs & Rock 'N' Roll - Part 2

As we burn through another week of re-runs and post our individual top three interviews - I'd made the choice to post the lighter side & theme it up. Up today is part 2 of Sex, Drugs & Rock 'N' Roll. Drugs. In case you were high and didn't follow where we're going here.

Drugs - 'weed' in particular - is practically a character in the very funny TV series Trailer Park Boys.

This interview is strange and wonderful... just as this show is. The actors who play the main characters - Ricky, Julian and God help us - Bubbles - are some of the best defined characters ever on television, Canadian or otherwise. They are true pop culture icons. Incredibly popular since their 2001 debut, the boys have been featured in a Tragically Hip video and even kidnapped Alex Lifeson from Rush. How Canadian. The lead actors appear regularly at events in character and always on point.

I was a late starter when it came to the Trailer Park Boys - a family member encouraged me to watch and I catch an episode whenever I can - settle in and laugh myself sick. Even the most composed and together individual is likely to crumble into heaps of laughter just by looking at 'Bubbles' and once you hear him speak, all bets are off. Makes me giggle every time. And I'm straight edge.

A fun 'Drug' moment in TPB history was the episode in which the tool shed, full of weed, burned to the ground. Welcome to Sunnyvale..... stay a while. Guaranteed failed money making schemes, foul and colourful language, meat stealing, Shitmobile driving action and much more!

Ladies and Gentlemen... Ricky, Julian and Bubbles. A truly 'Homegrown' success story took time to stop by The Hour to chat with George.

So - tune in tomorrow for the third of my three favourite clips... Rock 'N' Roll. Bet you can't guess who I'll feature.... it'll be wild. That's my only clue. And no, it's NOT Johnny Rotten.
