letterkenny review

The Canadian comedy television show, Letterkenny, was picked up by Hulu and released to viewers only months ago. The show is now in its fifth season but Hulu only currently has seasons one and two streaming. We have no word on when season 3 will be available to us. However, if the show becomes as popular in the United States as it was in Canada then it is almost certain. Season one was filled with humor, wit, skin crawling creepiness, Katy’s lack of clothing forte, fights, almost raves, and so much more. If you haven’t seen it then what are you doing with your life? I’ve been telling you to watch for weeks now! Seriously, you are depriving yourself of the best comedy to hit tv since Key and Peele.

Let’s take a look back at season one . . .

How Well Do You Know Your Letterkenny?

Now let’s test your knowledge of Letterkenny with this quiz. Season one may have only been six episodes, but these ten questions will really test your knowledge of how much you actually remember. Now click the image of Reilly and Jonesy and get after it boys!

Gail vs. Squirrelly Dan: A Letterkenny Creep Off

Gail is this creepy, overt, sex-crazed character that says some of the strangest stuff. Squirrelly Dan gives her a run for her money with equally weird and obscene/obscure comments. I decided to have a Creep Off with the two with quotes from season one, episode four. I will let you choose who is the bigger creep of the two.

Now what could possibly go wrong?

Round One

Squirrelly Dan: “Here’s a tip: it’s really hard to get tuna out of your dick hole.”

Gail: “Hey Wayne, how many planets are there? There will only be seven after I destroy Uranus.”

Round Two

Squirrelly Dan: “And that is why you never give a sword to a hooker.”

Gail: “She’s so hot I’d jerk off her dad just to see where she came from.”

Round Three

Squirrelly Dan: “Christ, I would snort her dandruff.”

Gail: “Call me cake, ’cause I’ll go straight to your ass cowboy.”

Hmm, I am going to have to stick with Wayne on this one. What do you think? Leave who you think is the winner of the Creep Off in the comments below.

If you liked season one of Letterkenny then head on over to Hulu for season two. Make sure to check Geek Insider for more reviews, recaps and recoils of all things Letterkenny.
