I am not a woman of ritual. There’s very little in this world that I do because I’ve always done it, not a birthday tradition or a makeup routine or even a consistent time for breakfast. But this, I do. The Bachelor Scale, my yearly ranking of The Bachelorette‘s cavalcade of mediocre suitors, happens come hell […]

We may not be able to gather at the Skydome but Baseball Season is nevertheless well underway so we decided to reinstate our tradition of hosting an annual Blue Jays Roundtable Podcast to talk through all the hopes and fears and complaints and little joys of being a Toronto Blue Jays fan. This year we […]

We may not have been able to celebrate our Critics’ Pick Awards Season to the extent that we’d like this year because of the pandemic but that can’t stop us from hosting our favourite part of the awards, our annual Nominee Interview Series. The list is short this year because we had so few nominees […]

We survived 2020! As the world heals itself from the single most insane year in memory, we’re choosing to look back with as much positivity as we can. The best way we can think to do that is to celebrate our annual Awards Season, even if there isn’t as much to celebrate as there usually […]

These are crazy times and we’ve all taken on a bunch of new projects as we socially isolate in order to help stop the spread of Covid-19. We’re donating where we can, we’re cleaning the pantry, we’re organizing the 2300+ title dvd library. We’re still working on the Nominee Interview Series even though the live event for our yearly Critics’ […]

Hello, Fellow Social Isolators! Like you, we’re determined to do all we can to #FlattenTheCurve and limit this COVID-19 horror show as much as possible. We’re donating where we can, but mostly we’re staying out of the way, hauled up alone in our apartments riding it out so we don’t contribute to the spread of this thing. So that […]

The new TV season is upon us! As we mourn the slaughter of all the great shows that had to die so these ones could live (RIP, For the People and Whiskey Cavalier; you were too good for this world), it’s time to give the new kids a shot. I gave each new show at […]

When it premiered in July 2013, Orange is the New Black was only the third original show on Netflix. House of Cards, which I’ve always maintained wasn’t half as good as reputed, will be remembered for the worst reasons. Hemlock Grove isn’t likely to be remembered at all. Which leaves us with OITNB. There are […]

Spaghetti Western is a popular approach for Shakespeare’s most controversial comedy (in fact this production…

After I saw Brigadoon, the Shaw Festival’s magical staging of a reimagined classic musical, I right away sat down to write about the experience. At least for me, the night I saw it, the mood I was in, Brigadoon was a fully contained theatrical moment about which I had plenty to say. Another staff writer […]

805-4821 (A) “805-4821 is a trans coming out story made out of other stories: a dialogue from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, a half-remembered swim lesson, and an 80,000 word Facebook correspondence” This is how the promotional material introduces Davis Plett’s work, directed by Gislina Patterson. I added it to my roster expecting a show that could be […]

One of my favorite panels from the ATX Television Festival was called “Resistance, Inclusion, and Creating Authentic Muslim Narratives.” Moderated by Vanity Fair’s Sonia Saraiya, the panelists spanned an impressive breadth of the industry. There was new director Nijla Mu’min, whose film Jinn has been a festival favorite for over a year. There was veteran […]

Paramount’s Rocketman is a bold, sentimental, messy, complex, obvious, colourful contradiction. If that sounds to you like a bad movie, you normally wouldn’t be wrong. But this is a movie about Elton John so bold, sentimental, messy, complex, obvious, colourful, and contradictory is just about right. The first place the film goes right is in […]
