My Current Actor Obsession
  Kelly Bedard

Tina Majorino. Tina first came into my consciousness as the cute little girl in 1994’s Corrina, Corrina.Since then, she graduated high school at the age of 15, became a trained opera singer, earned her black belt in martial arts and went on to star in one of the biggest cult films of the decade (Napoleon […]

Obsessions Remembered
  Kelly Bedard

With Saturday’s return of Pushing Daisies, I realized that I’d forgotten how much I love that show. With an Olive-centric episode, a fun mystery of the week and a couple great guest stars, the only thing I didn’t like about the first episode of the last run of Pushing Daisies was that it was the first […]

My Current Actor Obsession
  Kelly Bedard

25-year-old South African actor Adhir Kalyan was the best thing about the best new (and cancelled) show of the 2007-2008 TV season, Aliens in America. As Raja, the Pakistani exchange student who turns the Tolchuk family’s life upside down, Kalyan was consistently charming and unparalleledly engaging. Now, as David Spade’s deadpan and ambitious assistant Timmy […]

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 […]

I have no reasonable explanation for this but I’ve recently taken to watching incredibly bad TV shows on a regular basis. It started with Big Brother and One Tree Hill. I’ve always watched them (the residual effects of being 14 at exactly the wrong time) and have comforted myself with the reassurance that I’m allowed […]

What I love this week…. Maria Schneider. Big Band is back people! Slings & Arrows Season 2. Particularly the Romeo & Juliet stuff. Yvonne Strahovski on Chuck. Proving week after week that Buffy was really kind of a lame character afterall on the grand scale of hot blond super crime fighters. The fact that it’s […]

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 […]

Tear-jerkers: this week’s obsessions
  Kelly Bedard

I realize I haven’t done a list of weekly obsessions in a while so this list goes back a bit. There have been so many really touching things on the big and small screens lately, ranging from the historic (my #1) to the artistic (the Oscar movies) to the randomly lovely (my #2). So this […]

– December movies. It’s Oscar movie season and so far this year I’m loving it. I saw The Reader yesterday and Milk the day before that and loved them both. I was pleasantly surprised by The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and was happy when Frost/Nixon met my high expectations, though I am of the […]

  Kelly Bedard

-Danny DeVito on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The gang is so funny on their own, why do they need a little fat man to make them more absurd? – Mandy on Privileged. Seriously, where did that meltdown come from? – TV online viewing area limitations. I can’t watch anything on Hulu, NBC, ABC, FOX, […]

This Week’s Obsession
  Kelly Bedard

I’d never seen Mad TV before but after watching just a couple episodes on thwb.com I’m convinced that it might just be even funnier than it’s ultra-famous competitor Saturday Night Live. The women, in particular, stand out (something that is not usually the case with SNL, with a few notable exceptions). Mad TV is kind […]

So I’ve only just realized that I completely forgot to post my obsessions of the week. Sorry. Tonight I’m watching a Firefly marathon, finally finishing the series. So, a little late, here are my Firefly-themed obsessions. Simon Tam How is it possible NOT to be in love with this guy? He’s smart and noble and […]

Nico Archambault and Natalli Reznik My 2 favourite So You Think You Can Dance Canada contestants. Both beautiful technicians with spunk, drive and lots of fire and heart. Nico I’ve loved since his very first audition. Natalli, on the other hand, was the surprise of the season for me. She was originally my least favourite […]

Obsessions with a Theme!
  Kelly Bedard

Let me preface this post with an apology 1) for the fact that I haven’t posted since Saturday and 2) for the fact that I won’t be posting regularly again until next week. I’m on vacation see, not at my normal location or on my regular TV schedule. That will not stop me, however, from […]

Nick and Starr Spangler This week I decided to give The Amazing Race another try. I’ll write a full review in a minute but for now I just had to add my favourite team to my obsessions list. The dynamic brother/sister team was my absolute favourite within the first episode. I think they have the […]

I’m frightfully busy tomorrow, thus I am posting my weekly obsessions now. Brokeback Mountain I have to admit that I never got around to seeing it in theatres even though I have a profound love for 3/4 of it’s stars (I never really warmed to Michelle Williams), it has somehow slipped through the cracks all […]

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 […]

I’m not very impressed with the world at this very moment. So, though I am slightly obsessed with Chuck Bass, Netflix and BU Shakespeare Society’s Twelfth Nightthis week, I will instead be handing down a list of complaints and grievances. So, my big objections of the moment are as follows: The People Who Run the […]

Dexter Season 2 Almost, if not as, good as season 1, Season 2 (which I finished yesterday) had me hooked to the very end. The season solidified my opinion that Michael C Hall is the best TV actor of his generation and also threw even more light on the talents of Julie Benz (Rita), Jennifer […]

  Kelly Bedard

Yes I love So You Think You Can Dance Canada and I am partial to NBC’s new show My Own Worst Enemy and a big shout out to James Ehnes is required as his Tchaikovsky violin concerto with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra last Saturday made my month, but there is one winner for this week’s […]

  Kelly Bedard

Paris Hilton and Martin Sheen on funnyordie.com discussing the role of the fake president. Dexter season 2 on DVD. ABC and Fox who post their new TV episodes within hours of broadcast and have all their best shows available online. Canadian Thanksgiving. I get to go home this weekend where I will be eating turkey […]

Taylor Townsend  As played by the wonderful Autumn Reeser, this beautiful, controlling, caring and at times delusional spitfire is the best thing about The OC’s 4th and final season and is in many ways the saviour of the show. Privileged There is so much more to this show than the typical CW rich teenagers bit. […]

  Kelly Bedard

Jeremy and Juliet Darling “the well behaved twins” of Dirty Sexy Money are hilariously exuberant, devilishly selfish and ultimately big hearted. Like all the best sibling characters, Jeremy and Juliet have each others’ backs through thick and thin. But not only are they the characters I most find myself sympathizing with, they are also the […]

  Kelly Bedard

Summer Roberts– she’s tough and feisty and independent and funny and caring and smart in ways that are not immediately obvious, and she loves Seth. I just finished season 3 and she may be, at this moment, my favourite OCcharacter. She’s the onion of the show. Big Brother Episode 28– “swim club”, “late night”, “Renny’s […]

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 […]
