Editorial Reviews

In the small town of Shuckton, Ontario, which has just placed a bid to host the 2028 Summer Olympics, its mayor, Larry Bowman, is found murdered. As the authorities investigate, other townsfolk with a personal history to the deceased mayor conduct their own unofficial investigations to see if they can discover who committed the murder. Life in Shuckton continues under the leadership of the new mayor who has her own agenda, and under the watchful eye of the local news team, who not only have more news to cover than usual but who are dealing with their own internal issues. But as life continues, so does Death, he who has some more names on his list and some old scores to settle.

The Kids are back and they're all right. Admittedly, this series which aired on IFC didn't receive very good notices from mainstream critics upon its initial release--but perhaps it was this lack of expectations that caused "Death Comes To Town" to be a pleasantly goofy surprise. Sadly, I'm not as young as I once was and, in many ways, I feel like I've grown up with the Kids in the Hall. I've followed their older shows, their individual careers, and I even saw them live about 10 years ago. So, for good or bad, I was investing time with "Death." Perhaps not as laugh out loud funny as their most inspired work, "Death" has a pleasing silliness and is an appealing comic mystery.

From its opening scenes, in which Death (Mark McKinney) disembarks from a bus in small town Shuckton, we know we're in for an unconventional miniseries. The show, while always amusing, builds its premise over the episodes and its humor succeeds more and more as the characters are developed. When the mayor of Shuckton is killed, an innocent man is railroaded and the real culprit remains a mystery. Amidst all the turmoil and local politics, we've got Death lurking around with a secret agenda of his own. Playing multiple characters, as is their trademark, the Kids acquit themselves nicely. I loved Dave Foley as the mayor's ambitious widow (a dead ringer for Cybill Shepherd--I swear it even if you think I'm crazy). McKinney is terrific as Death and Foley scores again as the town's abortionist. By my favorite has got to be Bruce McCulloch's big city prosecutor. The trial in "Death" is inspired and is successful in skewering both small town mentality and classic courtroom procedurals. And one poor cat will be the sight gag that I remember forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious -- funny even if you watch over and over again! September 8, 2010
Format:DVD
I caught some of this series on the CBC in the spring and thought it was very funny. When the DVD was released in Canada, I just had to get it, even though it meant purchasing outside of Amazon. If you liked the old Kids in the Hall TV series, you will love this. While the "Kids" may not be young anymore (I'm guessing they are all in their 40s or maybe even 50s), they still have genius comic timing and great writing. They play most of the roles in this 8-part mini-series themselves, both male and female roles (even though they are all men). The series is a "murder mystery" of sorts -- the mayor of a small Canadian town is murdered, and the series revolves around finding the murderer, in hilarious fashion. Quirky small-town characters abound. My favorite is Dave Foley as the mayor's perpetually tipsy widow (watch for the garbage disposal margaritas and the "power shake" martinis). And for fans of the old KITH series, there is even a cameo by the Chicken Lady as a potential juror in the murder trial. How funny is that?! I know I will watch this series again and again and will never stop laughing. What higher praise can I give?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious September 2, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a fan of their earlier work, I was excited to see this DVD on my 'recommendations' page. It was HILARIOUS! My husband and I absolutely loved every episode. I can't adequately describe how talented these guys are at writing such outstanding comedy. I think I actually laughed harder at these episodes then at their earlier works. Time has only made them even better.

I highly recommend this to anyone who is a Kids in the Hall fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems like old times
Got this three days ago and have watched it three times. It was so fun to see some new Kids in the Hall characters that were equally as bizarre as some of the old favorites. Read more

The Kids haven't lost a step. This is bizarre and hilarious like all of their classic output. Each member shines in multiple rolls. I laughed quite hard through most of it.
