In Canada, we had the Trailer Park Boys.

Or, in a role reversal, Dan Needles' Wingfield Farm plays, where the Bay 
Street stockbroker needed to be educated in the basics of rural life by 
his brighter farmer neighbours.

(Bay Street is the Toronto equivalent of Wall Street).

"Books are an amazing thing. Anyone who thinks of them as a escape from reality or as something you should get your nose out of and go outside and
play, as merely a distraction, or an amusement, or a waste of time, is dead wrong. Books are the most important, the most powerful, the most
beautiful thing humans have ever created. ... Books can reach out across space and time and language and culture and customs, gender, and age, and
even death and speak to someone they never met, to someone who wasn't even born when they were written, and give them help, and advice, and
companionship and consolation." -- Connie Willis
