  • Writer's Strike

    Posted by Sean Chard, 6 years ago

    How bad is everyone feeling the impact from the writer's strike? It will be interesting to see the mid to long term effects of this.

    Many of the series have run out of shows, and the networks are filling the slots with movies or reality TV shows that were previously discarded.

    My favourite new show - Pushing Daisies - is out of episodes. Is anyone else watching this? The writing is pretty smart.

    One of my other favourite shows - Friday Night Lights - has a few episodes left. This is another interesting one, which isn't all about football, despite what's indicated in the title.

    I'm very disappointed that 24 has not started in January because of the strike. Last season was not great, but the upcoming season looked promising.

  • Paging Doctor Gregory House

    Our favourite pill popping diagnostician is back for three new episodes, starting this week! Not much hope for any episodes after that, but at least it'll be something to watch for the next few weeks.

  • LOST to be found?

    Posted by Anne Lee, 6 years ago

    Will it happen? Will the survivors of Oceanic 815 finally make it off the island? Nah.

    LOST finally returns to save us from endless re-runs this Thursday. There's a recap episode at 8pm, but the real action will be at 9pm when we rejoin the showdown between Jack and Locke.

    What are your favourite theories about the island? Has Locke completely lost it? Is the Not-Penny's-boat out to save our fave castaways or is there yet another nefarious plan at work? And what's with that flashforward to the dreadfully bearded and broken Jack?

    I also need to catch up on all the fun bits on ABC.com (abc.go.com/primetime/lost/index?pn=index) - Sam's Diary, Missing Pieces, etc. etc...

    Cardcaptors

    Posted by Vampire Lover, 6 years ago

    Keroberos

    I'm going back a bit with this post but did anyone ever watch Cardcaptors? I love that show. I'm so mad they took it off the air.

    Although the voices are off I do prefer the japanese version of the show. The plot is better.

    I still watch the show on youtube and the best part is the final movie that I believe never aired in Canada. I watched it just the other night.

    In total there are 70 episodes plus movies (at least in the english version that is)

    I miss the show and I just wanted to know if I'm the only one.

  • REGENESIS

    Posted by A Prairiegirl ♫, 6 years ago

    One nite I started to " rewatch " this series, as I couldn't get into it earlier. I started to enjoy it. Now I'm completely addicted to the series.!!! I discovered Ellen Page was the teen on it for the first year. I love this show as it deals with viruses and possible epidemics. A team of Canadian and American scientists working for NORBAC , battle the world of viruses and global politics.

    Freaks & Geeks

    Posted by jes, 6 years ago

    I really wonder what NBC was thinking to allow Freak & Geeks to slip through their fingers. It was nominated for 2 Emmy's and had an incredible storyline and cast.

    Many of the cast members were in Knocked Up (Seth Rogen and Jason Segel). Martin Starr, Steve Bannos, and David Krumholtz all appeared as extras in Superbad.

    In 2008, James Franco and Rogen will co-star in the Judd Apatow-produced comedy film The Pineapple Express.

    If you choose to pick up the only series I suggest you savor every moment because the show only aired for a single season.

    Die-hard fans should check out the shows MySpace: www.myspace.com/freaksandgeeksonline

  • Writer's Strike...Thank Goodness for TV on DVD

    Posted by Melanie Fishbane, 6 years ago

    picking and choosing one's favourite Buffy season...

    Well, I have to say, there is one thing that I can say that the writer's strike has helped with...catching up with those shows that you thought that you never had time for and now you do! (or I could take up a winter sport...nah!)
    TV on DVD provides one with hours of choice...I can return to classic programming that I loved years ago, like Northern Exposure or early episodes of ER. Or, I can make my way through shows I love again and again...Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Gilmore Girls comes to mind...but better yet is trying on new shows. A friend of mine has recommended Friday Night Lights and I haven't had time in my TV schedule to fit it in...now I can...My partner and I just made our way through the first season of the cult hit Jericho (which is worthy of all of its acclaim.) This weekend, I think we are going to check out the first Season of Dexter.
    So don't lose heart dear TV lovers, head to TV on DVD land and I am confident that you will find something that will appease your weary heart.

  • Welcome 2008! Let the TV schedule resume...

    Posted by Anne Lee, 6 years ago

    Well, it's a new year, and that means (some of) our fave shows will be back, and there is whole batch of new shows hoping to grab viewers bored with the filler stuff being shown during the writers' strike. I'm glad that Dexter might get picked up by CBS, even if it does get sanitized, and I'm looking forward to figuring out what the heck is going with LOST when that comes back at the end of the month. Does anyone else have any shows that they're particularly looking forward to?
