I’ve touched on this a little before, but it bears repeating. While historically, Comic Cons were mainly a method for learning more about the comic book industry and acquiring rare or vintage editions of things, recently they’ve become more of a vehicle for publicity—particularly sneak peeks at things and grand unveilings. Here’s a little bit […]

The Twin Peaks star’s presence can make almost any film or TV show better. Since his iconic show went off the air in 1991, MacLachlan has mostly filled the role of “that guy who’s in everything”, creating some of the most memorable television roles in recent history. His was one of my favourite long term […]

Little Mosque on the Prairie, now in its 5th season on CBC, is possibly Canada’s best-known sitcom at the moment.

The premiere alone was chock a block full of […]

Canada’s Got More Hits
  Kelly Bedard

CBC has officially put a third show on my radar (the others being Little Mosque on the Prairie and Being Erica). The charming sitcom 18 to Life is not exactly ground breaking but it is incredibly sweet. As the central 18-year-old married couple, Jessie and Tom are fun characters with excellent chemistry. Jessie is played […]

Mr. Romantic is at it again.
  Kelly Bedard

And what does Mr. Romantic deserve as the perfect accompaniment to his grand gesture of the week (in some wonderfully timed, self-referential scenes)? A little Love Actually of course. In this week’s romantic comedy-skewering yet still knowingly cheesy How I Met Your Mother, Ted Mosby got the perfect backup: the beautiful (and easily identifiable) score […]
