Here we go, Season 9 is out on Crave: Dec 25 and Hulu Dec 26. I hope my Canadian POV doesn't get in way of my breakdown. Here goes:
Letterkenny 09x01 - American Buck and Doe
The wait is over and yes Derks got a beat down and a broken arm. Good episode all around.
The Great: The pre fight jawing between Letterkenny and Derks' gang and then the fight. Also great that Rosie says "Yawn" everytime Gail talks dirty.
The Good: American and Canadian Armed Forces teaming up to help Wayne take down Derks' gang.
The Bad: The operations conversation with the Military Teams. Went on way too long with no joke payoff.
Letterkenny 09x02 - Kids With Problems
Uneven episode where the Beer League is hilarious with Coaches' stories but slows down a lot with the Kids causing problems in Letterkenny; stealing mailboxes, leaving poop bags by doors and grabbing "BONNIE MCMURRAY"
The Great: Coach's stories (call back from the "Three Wise Men" episode) which are NSFW but are hillarious and the reactions of Rielly and Jonesy.
The Good: Tyson and Joint boy's fight. Muay Tai versus Boxing. Stupid wins everytime as they knock each other out.
The Bad: The scared straight type interaction with the kids that went on too long and became cringy and awkward in some parts.
Letterkenny 09x03 - Scorched Earth
Good episode where Katy is unleashed and begins to date a lot to find a mate. Glen tells tales out of school regarding Gail and Jimmy Dickens.
The Great: Glen letting out rumours regarding Gail and Jimmy Dickens. Becomes hilarious when the NSFW conversation moves to Jim Dickens' Dick Skin. Also great seeing Gail get together with Jim.
The Good: Cold Open spoofing tourists returning from England start using a British accent.
The Bad: Sorry, but I am getting tired of being told how awesome Katy is.
Letterkenny 09x04 - Mitzvah
Solid, hilarious episode where Rielly and Jonesy learn about Judaism and Mitvahs and the gang goes to Mo-Deans for Brunch.
The Great: Rielly and Jonesy learning about Judaism and Mitzvah's and going out to make one.
The Good: The Cold Open and double date with Dan and Ellen and Wayne and Rosie. The effort to have Ellen have a conversation without sex content fails massively.
The Bad: Nope too solid an episode.
Letterkenny 09x05 - Sleepover
This is one of those strange episodes that is disconnected from the rest of the season. Okay episode where the gang is snowed (or cold weathered) inside and resort to movies, board game and sleepovers to pass the time.
The Great: Nope too hard too find.
The Good: Rielly and Jonesy talking hockey. Gail, Rosie and Bonnie's game of scrabble.
The Bad: 3 parts: Some connection is made between Darry and Bonnie, but is lost and not addressed the rest of the series. The conversation about a strange sound coming from a woman. The Cold Open where the gang discusses how to fix Gail's vehicle-without any laughs.
Letterkenny 09x06 - Breastaurant
Good episode where a new Hooters type restaurant opens in Letterkenny. Gail worries about the future of Mo-Deans.
The Great: The conversation about the word "taste" is so funny I can't stop watching it. Darry and Wayne crush it.
The Good: Loyalty of Wayne and the gang to Mo-Deans.
The Bad: Conversations regarding women's breasts interest to gay men.
Letterkenny 09x07 - NDN NRG
Okay episode with Tanis showcasing her new energy drink which is a little too much like Bro-Dude.
The Great: It took until episode 7 to get some Tanis. Great character.
The Good: Wayne are Rosie discussing the word Letterkenny.
Lots of the Bads: Sorry, throwing the 3 heels (Derks, Anik and Marie-Fred) from last season into the final episode to create a cliff hanger is not a favorite of mine (bit of a call back to season 2). Bro-Dude rep is so nasty and obnoxious and I hate when she is on my screen and yet somehow she has been given power to take back a hockey trophy.
4 characters are barely in the season; Glen, Mrs. and Mr. McMurray and Tanis. This somewhat hurt some of the arcs from the season before.
Most of the episodes are uneven meaning that there are scenes that go on too long like the operations conversation and the conversation with the kids.
When it is funny it is rolling on the floor funny. Gail was more enjoyable this season as were Rielly and Jonesy.
This is my favorite show and I enjoyed it but it is declining from the past seasons.
