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. Schitt's Creek has truly established itself as a TV classic. And one mom has gone the extra mile with her Schitt's Creek love.
But first, let's run down some BTS secrets that'll prove why the show is so loved.
If you weren't aware, Schitt's Creek is the best show ever.
But there's one asset left that they didn't lose...
And hilarity ensues.
The Roses are incredible.
And siblings David and Alexis, who begin spoiled and self-centered...
Who doesn't want a friend like Stevie?
Basically, it's impossible to not love everyone.
'Schitt's Creek' has a cult-like following.
But even better than the show itself?Well, it has to be all the behind the scenes secrets. And here are some of our personal faves...
Those iconic wigs?They were apparently all Catherine O'Hara's idea!
Along with this famous pronunciation.O'Hara explained, "I said 'bébé' as a joke or a mistake the first time. Once I hit on 'bébé' and got a laugh from the crew, that was it."
And that, "Ew, David?"Well, that was a similar story. Annie Murphy said, "I just ran with it. I drove it into the ground."
The show wouldn't be the same without Moira's accent.But did you know it was a total surprise to everybody on set when O'Hara first came out with it?
And O'Hara almost wasn't in the show!Unimaginable, we know - but it was actually Eugene Levy who suggested her to Dan Levy.
Alexis wouldn't be Alexis without that hand gesture, right?Well, Annie invented it based on the way celebs like the Kardashian's carried their tiny handbags.
In fact, the inspirations behind Alexis were many.Apparently, she was based on Lindsay Lohan, the Olsen twins, and, of course, Paris Hilton.
And remember that "Simply the Best" cover?Noah Reid actually composed the whole song for that very scene - and made O'Hara cry in the process.
Wondering who Moira was based on?
Anyway - back to those wigs.Apparently, the white one from season 6 episode 1 was worn backward. Worn the right way, it basically totally obscured O'Hara's face!
One of the funniest aspects of Alexis's character?Her past reality show, A Little Bit Alexis. But did you know that this was actually a part of her initial character description?
And as for that incredible theme song?It was written by Annie's husband Menno Versteeg, who fronts the band Hollerado.
Dan Levy's writing really makes the show.And he claims his favorite parts to work in were Alexis's outrageous name drops.
Emily Hampshire claims she always dreamt of playing Sally Bowles in Cabaret.And thanks to Schitt's Creek, her dream came true!
Moira used some pretty unusual terms in season 1.

O'Hara's favorite scene?
via: CBCWhen they're selling makeup and David is absolutely covered in bronzer. She said, "he looked like a goldfish caught in headlights. I couldn't stop [laughing]. I was so unprofessional."
And Levy's least favorite?When he gets dripped on in the motel room. We can see why!
The Christmas medley was originally written for O'Hara only.But she convinced Dan to take part, too - even sending him the harmonies!
Many fans love Ted's puns.And they were actually inspired by Dustin Milligan, who plays him!
Alexis and Ted are actually the same height!This means for many of the kissing scenes, Dustin is standing on a box - particularly when Annie is wearing heels.
The final season contained tons of Easter Eggs.
