The Kids in the Hall: The Pilot Episode

The Kids in the Hall: The Pilot Episode


There are some older shows that you look up a few years after originally liking them and wonder "Why'd I ever like that?" and then there's The Kids in the Hall. Even their pilot episode was genius. I'd been watching it when my boyfriend walked through the room, so I paused it. He asked me what I was watching, I told him and asked if he'd ever seen it. He told me that he never "got it" because where he grew up what they did was shocking, but that he thinks now as an adult he can appreciate their brand of humor much better. And that is the thing with The Kids in the Hall - you likely get them and love them or look at the screen with shock and disgust and you hate them, there doesn't seem to be much of an in between when it comes to KITH. They do take on gender, sexuality, race, you name it. Yes, they do perform skits on these sensitive topics while wearing dresses. Or in the case of the skit about Jesus, while wearing nothing at all. Whatever it takes to get their points across. Really it's not something you can describe and do it justice. But if you've not seem them and are curious, this is one of the rare cases when you can start at the pilot episode and get a fair feeling for what the show will be like. 5/5 stars
