Genre: Comedy
Why you should watch: Mike Myers plays most of the characters in this bizarre series that purports to tell the story of the titular secret society — “a nice one” — being investigated by a kindly soft-news reporter for a Toronto TV station. It’s downbeat comedy filled with Myers’ trademarks puns, sight gags, winks to the audience and double entendres, with a wave to the broad British humour he grew up on. It’s unexpectedly progressive too.
