I think a lot of the SCTV stuff has stood the test of time better than SNL. Steve Martin's comedy was a sensation and we all could repeat it from memory, but listen to it now and it's mostly stupid - a lot of the SNL stuff is like that (although still a lot of classics from that show.SCTV. Launched legends John Candy, Eugene Levy, Martin Short, and others. It really rivaled or beat SNL for hilarity and originality.
Wasn't Kids In the Hall Canadian?
As for the others in this thread, never heard or seen them except Schitt's Creek which I tried to watch and totally un-funny. I could not even get thru season 1. Really dumb. Surprising too, I like Levy and that female lead, who are in many Christopher Guest films which are excellent.
And great background music / very suspenseful at times.Completely agree. Murdoch mysteries is just incredible with amazing writing/scripts and a great attention to historical detail
My BIL was a building inspector with City of Mississauga. Said Holmes was basically banned from taking out a building permit in the GTA because of multiple unresolved permit infractions.I know this is not a series but my wife love's Holmes on homes, he is really good.

As far as the historical detail, you must mean the buildings, cloths, cars and horses / all are great.
But, the show does rewrite history (inventions) in a comical way.
