I have come to the possibly ill-informed conclusion that everything that could be said about the 'Trailer Park Boys' has already been said. So, to mark the release of their second movie, I propose a matchmaking exercise. Who needs another article loudly proclaiming the triad's return when such a sexy alternative exists?

Join us in exploring the romantic possibilities of matching the TP Boys and their TV-turned-silver screen counterparts, the ladies of 'Sex and the City' (who are back on the street filming their second feature film). The two shows aren't as dissimilar as you might think - both enjoyed long runs spanning multiple seasons and had cinematic transitions that were successful enough to warrant sequels.

Using the sort of science that creates love potions, we determine which imaginary couple would have the best chance at creating some sparks over a Cosmopolitan.

Match #2: Carrie and Julian

Both share a common passion: hooch. Julian is never seen without a rum and Coke, while Carrie is seldom caught without a Cosmo. They both serve as the glue that hold their respective groups of friends together. Julian aspires to get rich quickly and retire young: hooking up with Carrie and her steady flow of residual cheques from her book sales could help him achieve this (of course, this plan would only work if he could persuade her to move out of money-sucking Manhattan.) Carrie, in turn, will be drawn to Julian's intimidating, alpha-male façade. (He's definitely more Big than Aidan.)

Possibility of Living Happily Ever After: 65%


Match #1: Samantha and Bubbles

Career-focused man-eater Samantha needs a sensitive partner who's comfortable living in her shadow. The quiet, occasionally insightful Bubbles just might fit the bill. While she's out throwing lavish parties and wooing celebrity clients, he could hold down the fort, contently listening to Rush while making dinner and doing her laundry. Samantha will appreciate Bubbles' wild side, most frequently channeled through his wrestling alter-ego The Green Bastard. Bubbles will be attracted to Samantha's beauty and take-charge attitude, and welcome the opportunity to spend time away from his tool shed.

Match #3: Charlotte and Ricky

Charlotte and Ricky are both frequently mocked by their friends for their seemingly naïve musings. (Charlotte: "Does my hair look too shiny today?" Ricky: "It doesn't take rocket appliances.") Family is very important to both of them. Charlotte dutifully tried to protect her brother from becoming another notch on Samantha's bedpost, while Ricky once chose to buy Trinity a set of encyclopedias instead of getting himself a new trailer. Ricky takes his jobs seriously, which could bode well for future promotions and the potential to support Charlotte's stay-at-home lifestyle.

Match #4: Miranda and J-Roc

Miranda clearly has a thing for the everyman (ahem, Steve), so J-Roc may be just up her alley. She wouldn't be able to take him to her fancy lawyer parties, but if that wasn't a deal breaker with Steve, why would it be with J-Roc? J-Roc would be drawn to Miranda's business savvy and no-nonsense attitude. Miranda may be put off by J-Roc's dalliance in the porn industry, the constant presence of T and the fact that he thinks he's black, but at the end of the day, she just might appreciate his entrepreneurial sensibilities and amusing rap stylings.

Possibility of Living Happily Ever After: 24%


Conclusion:

I'm rooting for Miranda and J-Roc, but at the end of the day it's Carrie and Julian who appear to have a Tila Tequila-esque shot at love. And, hey, she couldn't do worse than Big.
