I knew I would like Moneyball. I was hoping it wouldn’t suck but I was fairly certain I’d love it either way. The following are the reasons: – My idol of all idols Aaron Sorkin worked on the script, even if it was rewritten for a third time before finally going into long-delayed production, and […]

Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle brought some insight to David Letterman tonight with his list of “The Top Ten Things That Went Through Mark Buehrle’s Mind During His Perfect Game [on Thursday]” Why is this at all interesting? Number 5 on the list was:“Did I remember to TiVo So You Think You Can Dance?” […]

Obsessions

Emma Stone– She was the saving grace of the underwhelming Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, a highlight of The House Bunny and played one of the only relatable characters in Superbad. The girl is a serious talent and she’s here to stay. Dubbed Disney- the mad editing skills of “Fantachan” make the Random Disney Crap YouTube […]

There’s lots to be excited about this week, so I’m getting a jump on “Obsessions” (as well as making up for almost never writing this feature, when it’s supposed to be weekly). MY BOYS: last week’s episode had me in stitches. I couldn’t be happier that it’s back. BETTER OFF TED: still loving it. THE […]

Tara’s Family supportive husband Max, somewhat rebellious daughter Kate and sweet son Marshall are the perfect compliment to the central craziness in United States of Tara. Scrubs The new season is very sweet. The 8th season comedy also deserves some serious thanks for being one of the only shows with new episodes this week. Captain Awesome I’m watching season […]

OBSESSIONS OF THE WEEK BARACK OBAMA, The Presidential Election and The American People. I’m the proudest Canadian you will ever find, at least in Boston. But last night I found myself insanely jealous of my American friends. Not only was their election a celebration the scale of which Canada has never seen, but they now have […]

So, my big objections of the moment are as follows: The People Who Run the […]

Dylan Moran Known to most as the guy with the book down his trousers from Notting Hill, Dylan Moran is probably the best standup comedian I’ve ever heard. My friend Mack, who is often feeding me obscure comedy I don’t enjoy, forced me to watch Moran’s brilliant britcom Black Books then an hour and a half of his standup […]

OK, after a week off for a family emergency, I’m back and trying to make up for lost time with a double dose of weekly obsessions… Avenue Q I just came home from seeing the touring production. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time- go see it. The lead plays both Princeton and […]

I forgot to add one of the most important obsessions of my week… Justin Timberlake hosting the ESPYS. Now I’m not a particular Justin fan and there’s really only 1 sport I care about at all (baseball) but I got caught up watching the annual sports award show because he could not have been a […]

A New Feature: My Top Ten Obsessions of the Week (maybe TV related, maybe not)

Daily we exchange ideas on topics ranging from our favourite TV sidekicks to which female characters make the best case for feminism. 9. Late Canadian stage legend William Hutt’s performance of King Lear in the series finale of Slings & Arrows […]
