Series summary

Premise

A group of friends, now in their seventies, looks back on their shared criminal past. The series narrates in three different time periods: when the protagonists are in their seventies, which takes place forty years in the future (2055-ish), when they are in their thirties, which takes place in the modern day (2015), and when the characters are all in high school together, which takes place 15-20 years ago (1995-2000)

Setting conventions

The main story takes place in Toronto. The world is largely as it really is (i.e, no fantastical elements) but there is the possibility for gadgets that are a bit beyond what really exists.

Tone

Goofball humour. Light-hearted and silly. The show has a rating of TV-14, though, as there may be some sexual or violent content.
