Little Dog (CBC) – Premieres 1st March
Canadian comedy that follows Tommy “Little Dog” Ross, a boxer who walked out his title fight half way though the bout, and does his best to become a forgotten man.
This ends five years later when after he leaves his pub on his birthday, he gets videoed taking down two bouncers. The footage manages to end up being played on the news, leading to the boxer he walked out on, RIco St. George, to offer him a championship fight to finally settle who is the better fighter.
As he ponders the offer his family are adamant that he shouldn’t accept as his mother found his failure tarnished the family name, along with his father being imprisoned. After getting numerous members of his family telling him that he shouldn’t do it, Tommy snaps and accepts the challenge on a TV interview.
While the show does have a couple of alright moments in it, it’s a pretty inconsistent bit of comedy where it misses more than it hits. That said it far more accessible and funnier than Crawford.
