In light of all the mandatory sitting at home by ourselves that’s happening right now, I decided to try something I’ve never done before: I actually watched all those cookie cutter crime shows that TV networks renew for decades on end and grandmas watch during daytime reruns for some reason. I often say I “watch […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2017 MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Stephen Joffe has the sort of unique intense energy that, when casting the role of unpredictable cousin Ziggy in the Storefront’s site-specific epic Tough Jews, both the writer and director had the same “it has to […]

We’re back with another episode of the My Entertainment World Podcast, this one all about Canada’s first-ever Bachelorette. To help me sort out the good (Kyle!), the bad (Drew) and the ugly (Drew’s soul) of Jasmine’s search for love, I recruited Soulpepper actress Katherine Gauthier whose regular schedule of Ibsen and Molière is well balanced […]

The only 2015 performer nominated by two different branches, Christine Horne is up for both a MyTV and MyTheatre award this year for her season-stealing Guest Actress turn on the woefully cancelled Canadian medical drama Remedy and […]

The most annoying thing about the new Showcase/Syfy show adapted from Lev Grossman’s 2009 novel The Magicians is honestly just that it’s called “The Magicians” (and the promotional image to the right, that’s also very annoying for lots of reasons both feminist and aesthetic). It’s your basic CW-ish college-age fantasy drama. The mythology is complicated, […]

To celebrate their upcoming 3-night miniseries Childhood’s End (an adaptation of the seminal 1953 sci-fi novel by the same name), Showcase has given us a special prize pack to give away to one lucky reader. Pictured here, it includes a canvas tote, notepad and copy of the Arthur C. Clarke’s book the 6 hour event is […]

Canada’s best mainstream TV drama is yet to be renewed for a 7th season as it concludes its 6th (11 episodes that were originally ordered as part of a 22-episode fifth season but were later separated to air a year). The writers were clearly prepared for the possibility that this is the end- every single […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2014 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. We were already falling in love with Dr. Jerry Gordon on Remedy when a little show called Lungs showed up in the Tarragon Extra Space and solidified Brendan Gall as one of our new favourite actors (on […]

This was a great year of TV. It was a massively terrible year for network TV with few new hits and tons of stupid cancellations (6 shows on this list have already been cancelled or are in their final season) but it was still a great year of TV because, while the executives were making […]

I came late to the bandwagon when it comes to Orphan Black. It took a long summer and a persistent roommate to get me to finally dive into a series that my cooler (and Canadian) friends had been begging me to watch for years. Here’s the basic premise, although if you haven’t seen the show […]

Trailer Park Boys is the show that fans constantly say goodbye to and yet they always welcome it back with open arms. At this point, the show has ended on two separate occasions and, following the true-to-form theatrical release Countdown to Liquor Day, it seemed like the boys’ adventures were ending for good. Normally, I […]

Global’s new medical drama is a fantastically solid primetime offering. Like Rookie Blue before it, Remedy is the sort of well-produced, highly watchable, long-term-potential fare that can do a lot to support Canada’s ever-improving but still flimsy television landscape. Both filmed and unabashedly set in Toronto, Remedy is a Canadian production that uses Canadian actors […]

“It’s my first show,” she says to me, beaming. “I’ve been shooting forever! I started on dad’s old school Nikon,” she continues, all in one breath, “I just loved to take pictures!” Ali Eisner is standing beside me, among many others crammed into the Gladstone Hotel’s Art Bar. She wears a dark green, styled hunting […]

There’s this little BBC America show about clones—Orphan Black?—you might have heard of it (and how people are ready to swear bloody vengeance because a certain actress was Emmy snubbed). Orphan Black begins with troubled, tough, drug-dealing/doing Sarah Manning at a train station, suddenly pulled into a tangled web of half-information and deceit when she […]

“Cochran’ll do better next time”. That’s what I said in my wrap up of the fall 2011 season of Survivor: South Pacific. I also said the following: “A lot’s been said about John Cochran over the course of this season and a lot of it’s been pretty unfair. There are those who were disappointed that […]

Heartland is a family show. I remember hearing the CBC advertise their Sunday evening lineup back in the fall; they called Sunday night “family night”. And Heartland is a part of that. The series is constantly expressing and reinforcing traditional, Canadian family values. As a prime example, almost every episode the family sits down at a […]
