Schitt’s Creek season 5

One of our favorites is back for its fifth and final season. Schitt’s Creek tells the tale of a wealthy couple – video store magnate Johnny and his soap opera star wife Moira – who suddenly find themselves completely broke. With only one remaining asset, a small town called Schitt’s Creek which the Roses bought years earlier as a joke, this once-wealthy couple must give up life as they know it. 

With their two adult spoiled children in tow and their pampered lives behind them, the Rose family is forced to face their newfound poverty head-on and come together as a family to survive. 

Society has traditionally thumbed its nose at the romcom because other genres are so much more sophisticated – like watching Joaquin Phoenix as a killer clown with feelings, for example.

While most queer sitcom characters are given a partner eventually, their love is portrayed as chaste to the point where they don’t even seem to touch. David (Dan Levy) is one of the main characters in a family of dysfunction and wigs, and his pansexual relationships with everyone from Stevie (Emily Hampshire) to actual saint Patrick (Noah Reid) serve as focal points for Schitt’s Creek’s plotlines.
