The Sunnyvale crew binds together for not one, but two jobs to help raise enough money for legal fees to save the park in an episode titled “A Three Tiered Sh*t Dyke.”

The boys’ first attempt is relatively minor: stealing a bike rack from a University campus. Accompanied by Lucy and Sarah, the job goes relatively smoothly, with Ricky even offering up some hash to campus security who begin to question their validity. But the crew are wearing safety vests, so they must be legitimate, right?

Not receiving nearly enough money needed for the lawyer, Ricky suggests another option: this time, the boys will break into houses with alarm systems (because they must have expensive stuff, obviously), and take off before the “dumb and slow” cops arrive. Well, the police were literally right outside of the first house that they hit.

This episode had quite a few laugh out loud moments, and the majority of them came in the house invasion scenes. Bubbles, who now has an image complex after being called a nerd by some kids while hauling some shopping carts from a grocery store, dons a new badass look and attitude to be “cool,” and has some amazing banter with characters who oppose the change in character while stealing the goods of the house.

Somewhere else in Nova Scotia, Lahey, still drunk and out of Sunnyvale, continues to be strong-armed by Barb and her crew to sign the legal papers, despite his pushback.

While the entire lawsuit storyline is satisfactory, one issue has been concurrent throughout the entire Netflix run: the lack of Ricky and Lahey interactions. Their relationship is just as integral to the success of the show as the core three’s is, and the switch to Lahey and Julian as the focus presents a less superior parallel.

By the end of this third episode, viewers should easily be able to decide if the tenth season is for them or not. The toned-down theme is reminiscent of older episodes—for better or for worse—yet the show is different due to a slight change in humor. The majority of Trailer Park Boys fans should find this season enjoyable so far, and “A Three Tiered Sh*t Dyke” is a preeminent reason why.
