Welcome to a special edition of “Obsessions of the Week”. In this post (hopefully making you forget that I didn’t write at all last week) I’ll list my 20 favourite male and female TV characters. These aren’t necessarily the most revolutionary or the most classically brilliant TV characters, it’s by no means a typical list […]

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 […]

MEGHAN AND SEAN. Felicity’s eccentric former roommate and Ben’s lovable landlord are the saving graces of a mediocre season 3. The unlikely couple are hilarious and adorable together. Amidst a boring Ben/Felicity relationship, a severe Noel character meltdown, an over-the-top drug/shooting incident and stupid Elena romance problems, the fact that Meghan and Sean were given so […]

Felicity’s Haircut Most people hated it when Felicity’s response to getting her heart broken was to cut off her signature long curls. In fact, the change of hair in season 2 is (somewhat jokingly) charged with the decline in the show’s ratings. I, on the other hand, love her haircut. I think if you’ve got […]

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 […]

Another late week for Obsessions

Fred Armisen on SNL. His Obama impression is dead on and his “political comedian” Nicholas Fehn is perhaps my favourite character on the show. SNL repeats- the perfect summer solution. Dominic Cooper. Not only is he the star of The History Boys (one of my all-time favourite movies) but with Mamma Mia, Dom Cooper proved […]

I apologize for being late with this week’s installment of “obsessions” but I was incredibly sick yesterday. So here they are, a day late, my “obsessions of the week” Scott Foley: I’ve been re-watching season 1 of Felicity and simply can’t get over the incredible charm of this guy. Katee: I can’t recall any dancer […]

Every Wednesday I bring you a list of my current obsessions. This week the winners are… Mia Michaels A long-time favourite of mine, So You Think You Can Dance choreographer and judge Mia Michaels can always be relied upon for fair, tough and constructive judicial comments, a quirky turn of phrase, unique fashion choices and […]

Popular on DVD. This satire of high school soaps was a favourite of mine back when it originally aired and still manages to make me laugh, even now that I’m older and more cynical. Though Sam and Brooke drive me insane, Harrison and Carmen remain two of my all-time favourite television characters and Nicole Julian is one […]

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 […]
