Best Discovery of the Week: The Red Green Show is on YouTube

My parents wanted me to watch family friendly shows as a kid, and because of an odd channel line-up I got into some rather strange shows. There was Keeping Up Appearances and Are You Being Served from the UK, thus beginning my love of British comedy, and then there was the Red Green Show, from Canada.

Before Ron Swanson, there was Red Green, the manliest man who could fix anything, or really build anything, with duct tape. It may sound dumb, and perhaps it is,  but there was just something about the humor of this show that cracked me up as a kid, and still does today.

I just discovered that A) This show actually lasted until 2006, and ran for 15 years, and B) YouTube has a whole bunch of seasons online with tons of episodes you can watch for free. I’ve taken the liberty of selecting ten that I found rather great, and you can check out the videos below:
