TV has changed. The days when the networks trotted out the obligatory Easter Sunday reshowing of Cecil B. Demille’s 1956 torch-’n’-togas epic The Ten Commandments — complete with Charlton Heston shouting, “Let my people go!” – will no longer do. […]
Clone class is back in session, but this time there won’t be a test afterwards. Orphan Black, the inventive, homegrown sci-fi parable about cloning, scientific conspiracy, mistaken identity and morality, may sound intimidating to the casual, first-time viewer, but it’s […]
Wow. Who knew how good this show could be when it skipped the standard Wesen-’o-the-week storylines, focused solely on the season’s biggest storyarc, and brought all its players together for one purpose? Well, I think we all did, actually. Read more…
Poor Kiera. Not only is she digging herself a deeper and deeper hole with her time-travel and history-changing, but she also keeps facing the worst dilemma of all: What to do with an inconvenient dead body. Only this time around on Continuum, it’s rea…
Yes, please. Syfy has given a direct-to-series order to The Expanse, a new show based on James S.A. Corey’s acclaimed space-opera novels, with the first season comprising 10 episodes. And they’re describing it as “Game of Thrones in space.” This is everything we’ve wanted from Syfy for years.
Dave and I are excited to announce that we will be joining Dancing with the Stars Season 19. It’s a dream come true for us to join one of our favourite shows and to split up ThePlanetD team for a bit and compete against one another! As many of you may know, we are huge fans of the show. Whenever we’re home, we tune in with our laptops open to tweet about our thoughts and weigh in on the judges [...]
After the children go to bed, I love to catch up with my husband over a glass of wine, read a good book, or watch one of my favourite shows on television. I stopped watching shows that completely depressed me last year. Shows like Grey’s Anatomy? No more. I could only handle so much heartache, you know? Action packed shows, like Breaking Bad, I can handle—and love. I also love a show that can make me laugh. Shows like Seinfeld, Friends, Modern Family and City’s original comedy, Seed. This show is funny, and it’s back—you can catch a brand-new episode on City TV tonight at 9:30 p.m.
There are laughs every week as you get to know and follow the lives of three very different families, who are united—whether they like it or not—by Harry, their formerly anonymous… sperm donor. Yes, you read that correctly—it’s quite the show, packed with hilarious moments that’ll make you laugh.
Still need more convincing that you should start watching Seed, if you’re not watching yet? Seed was voted Canada’s number one comedy by TV Guide in 2013, and was ranked number two in TV Guide Canada’s best shows in 2013. Pretty impressive, right? It’s basically Canada’s Modern Family.

I love great television. My favourite shows include House of Cards, Homeland, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and The Blacklist. I love shows that keep you watching and wanting more, shows that keep you on the edge of your seat, and deliver non-stop suspense and action—shows like The Blacklist.
If you’re not already watching The Blacklist, on Global, you should start—as soon as possible! Seriously, take my word for it—you will love it. (And guys… I’m never wrong!)
The Blacklist is about Raymond Reddington, one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. He mysteriously turns himself in and offers information on everyone he has ever worked with before, under one condition—that he only works with a new FBI agent, Elizabeth “Liz” Keen, played by Megan Boone.
Raymond Reddington is played by James Spader, who has been in Sex, Lies, and Videotapes, Crash, Secretary, and other great movies. Of course, I know him best as Steff from Pretty In Pink, a movie I’ve see over a hundred times.
Are you looking forward to watching The Blacklist? I’m excited for a brand-new episode on March 17th!
I’ve also got a great giveaway for fans of The Blacklist—if you’d like to win a t-shirt and mug, just leave me a comment below. (One person will win the mug and t-shirt, and I have three additional t-shirts to give away, too—good luck!)
Happy TV watching!
