Unoriginal From The Title Down
12 March 2006 | by animal_8_5See all my reviews

This was one of those terrible attempts at "quality entertainment" at Canada's CTV network during the mid-1970s. Who the hell was this Blake Emmons anyway, and how the bloody hell did he rate as host of anything? I understand he later filled in as a game show host on the show "Chain Reaction", before plummeting into absolute oblivion.

Funny Farm at its best was a rural Laugh-In...actually reasonably funny stuff, except the show was ruined every week with crappy country music. About all I recall about the show were the tasteless "fat" jokes about comedienne Monika Parker (Canada's answer to Hee Haw's Lulu?) and guest appearances of Ted Zeigler's hilarious drunk guy character.

A country band named 'Eastwind' backed up Blake Emmons in Funny Farm throughout much of its run, winning Top Canadian Band honors in 1975, 1978 and 1979. OK, I should have liked it better than I did, because in small-town Canada, what else was there on the tube to watch? Still, I probably could've lived without it. Hell, I lived without Hee Haw...!
