Hi - this review is being written by Judy, Jeff's wife. Jeff and I were both born in Canada and moved to the USA twenty-one years ago. When I saw this show listed on Amazon prime, I decided to watch the first episode since I always like to learn about Canada. After just one episode, I was hooked! Jonny Harris is brilliant and I love the format of the show. Jonny and his crew take several days in each location to get to know the people of each community who are making a difference. He then presents a very funny comedy show at the end of his visit, talking about these people and telling humorous and interesting stories about them. While getting to know about the towns, Jonny also participates in lots of activities and he is actually quite good at most of them! Jonny comes across as a warm and caring person and you will really like him both as a person and as a wonderful comedian.
Firstly, if you read a bad review of this show off of IMDB, take time to review the reviewer. Those who give it bad reviews invariably, in my humble opinion, do not give thumbs up to anything I would put any appendage up for, save for...well, you get the gist. We long loved Jonny from Murdoch Mysteries and any additional time with him we knew would be time well spent. After watching the first episode of this show we realized that we were right - Jonny is awesome! Aside from my daughter's long held affection for him, culminating in a self made t-shirt reading "I love Constable Crabtree," we just love his humor, his boyish charm, his unassuming wit. He's just a joy to watch. And to see Canada is the bonus to boot. So...more of Still Standing, please! Keep 'em coming! Thank you, Mr. Harris. And thanks to Canada!
If you want to laugh out loud and learn a lot about your fellow humans watch this series. We never had heard of Jonny Harris and found him to be a brilliant comedian. This is an unusual combination of current history and comedy that works.
I'm a Jonny Harris fan from America...love the Murdoch Mysteries, and he absolutely makes the show. I never even knew he was a humorist. Thanks for a good time in the tradition of "A Prairie Home Companion".
