Backpack Picnic

Farmer Dinner

This week: As Pa finishes grace over a sparse dinner table obviously devoid of a main course, he vents frustration toward his younger son. Pa’s misdirected anger nearly boils over and quickly turns to tears. But all is forgiven when their eldest son appears with a huge salmon. A lovely evening of family time follows but is cut short by yet another tantrum. All that’s missing is a sappy country song… no wait, there it is.

PopMatters offers exclusive early looks at new episodes of Backpack Picnic, an online sketch comedy show from ON Networks.
