Canadian TV Has Been Feminist for Decades

But that's an interesting aspect of these Canadian series: not only are there still male-led series (like Murdoch Mysteries) but there are plenty of good male roles in these female-led series. There's far more gender balance in casting than a lot of the traditional male-led series.

When Can We Expect a Canadian Fantasy That Admits it's Canadian?

Sometimes identifying "Canadian" productions gets down to what you want to believe. I know people who will identify a co-production as "American" if they like it, and dismiss it as "Canadian" if they don't. Who knows what the future holds for Canadian genre TV? Maybe on the horizon is a Canadian genre series that isn't just grudgingly set in Canada, but unapologetically so.

Even when the clones hand each other glasses you forget special effects are involved!

Canadian series have a history of pretending they're set in America. Where they are supposed to be set -- well, that's a fascinating topic. In recent years we've also seen what could be called the "soft" Canadian setting. Series which admit they are set in Canada but in a way that a lot of viewers probably wouldn't pick up on.
