My memory of the early seasons of Trailer Park Boys is hazy, but the frequency of Ricky getting shot seems to be increasing.
Specifically in S10, a bullet lodges in his temporal lobe, and he is only revived by an infusion of weed that jumpstarts his brain. Then, in S11/EP3, he gets shot through the scrotum by his three-year old grandson, Mo, and twice more in the finale, in the hand and leg respectively.
But how do these running gags relate to underlying themes explored on the show? What is the symbolism behind the specific incidents?
