Based on the award-winning, best-selling memoir from Mark Critch (host of CBC's long-running​ This Hour Has 22 Minutes), Son of a Critch is the hilarious and very real coming of age tale set​ in 1980’s Newfoundland. It's a heartfelt window into the life of a 14-year-old boy - much older​ than his years – who uses comedy and self-deprecation to win friends and find his place in the​ world

Mark has always been a late bloomer. But this season, we see him finally start to bloom. As the season begins, we find that Mark has anxiously made his first awkward steps into junior high. He's now in grade nine and should be king of the castle. One year on top before the cycle starts anew in high school where he’ll find himself once again at the bottom rung. Until then, grade nine brings the promise of being the Big Man On Campus. But is Mark ready for junior high?
