Have you ever felt so connected to a television show that you feel as if you know the fictional characters? Even though they're not real, you love them the way you love your best friends and family. They jump off the page, out of our TV screens and slam directly into our hearts. That's the beauty of storytelling. Something like a TV show can feel so real and have a true impact on our lives. I mean, hello - hence the reason why The Office never gets old and I still sob during the "Booze Cruise" episode.
If you can't tell, I'm a fan of television. So when I was told to watch Schitt's Creek, Canada's sleeper hit from comedic legend Eugene Levy and his son Dan Levy, I of course obliged. But I had no idea that I was signing up for falling in love with the Rose family and the town of Schitt's Creek.
