Trying to remember name of show...


Recommended Posts

Slow day at work + randomly remembering images from a show = Crazy Dyko

I am trying to figure out the name of a show that used to be on Much Music up here, and probably on MTV as well.

It was on years ago, and was about a band travelling around, trying to make it big. I remember details, but can't for the life of me come up with a show name.

Random Details

  • One of the first episodes had the band's drummer playing football, and ending up in the bottom of a pile-up, face down in a puddle where he died; they hold auditions for a new drummer

  • A girl joins the band and plays keyboard. Her and the lead singer have a thing

  • The band's manager is a criminal or something, and can't cross the border, lives in a safe-house, and sends them out to crappy gigs constantly

  • The guitarist has red-dyed hair, always wears a toque, and is really sarcastic. At one point, she gets a side-job teaching kids karate (with hilarious results, naturally)

  • They travel around in a piece of shit van that in one episode breaks down and they end up going to a potato festival

It used to be on at like 10:30 or something during the week on Much.

I realize this is stupidly obscure, but I've been looking like mad all afternoon, and I'm sure my boss would very much appreciate anyone helping me out!

That's it.

That was driving me insane.

As far as I've found after looking it up, this show is actually a US version of "A Young Person's Guide...".

It was an awesome show. I loved all the quick cuts and fast jokes and all that.

Quality show.

The wedding one was awesome, but I really liked the one that I mentioned where they ended up in some small town at a fair. I remember something with the guitar chick being really horny, and everything she looked at would switch to slow motion and become really sexual.

It was definitely a great show for what it was. Sucks about the single season, though.
