Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present the My TV Nominee Interview Series. The actor behind one of the main villains on Canada’s best TV show, Being Erica, came back in the show’s final season to lend the character a reassuring dash of pathos. Adam MacDonald, who played Josh MacIntosh […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2011 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present the My TV Nominee Interview Series. A standout player on Canada’s best TV show, Morgan Kelly is best knows as the ever-evolving Brent on Being Erica, where he played the friend/rival/victim/love interest of Erica and her book publishing boss/partner Julianne […]

December 12th marked what is most likely the series finale of Canada’s best original series. Though the word hasn’t come down from the CBC officially yet that there won’t be a season 5, creator Jana Sinyor’s been quoted saying this is the end, so I’m leaning towards believing that too.

I wish it weren’t the case but I think it’s about time for Erica Strange to break some hearts. Though her and Ethan’s relationship began as very sweet (if entirely unoriginal), lately I can barely stand to watch them together. Every episode shows them bickering and the show’s wonderful leading lady looses a little bit […]

How I Met Your Mother may have taken me and my American counterparts to a fictionalized accent-filled Toronto last week but it wasn’t until I watched the latest from CBC’s Being Erica in contrast that I realized what it really is that sets Canadian TV apart from its powerful southern neighbour’s weekly offerings. Canadian TV […]

In such an American saturated market, it’s rare for a Canadian TV show to grab the attention of the nation. But that’s what Being Erica did. Of the very few well-known Canadian series in existence, only 2 have merited mention on this blog (Canadian editions of international shows don’t count, ie: So You Think You Can […]
